[Update: Comments are closed, and we've selected our winner and ... it's Ignatius! Congratulations, Ignatius. The folks at Falcon Northwest are custom building your PC right now. Solitaire is gonna fly on this thing!]

Here it is, folks. The most extravagant, expensive, and opulent prize we've ever offered you guys on this here blog. In laymen's terms: it's a one-of-a-kind Falcon Northwest system featuring a 3 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, two Nvidia GeForce 8800GT cards in SLI, two 500GB hard drives in RAID 0, and a 22" widescreen Viewsonic monitor, and a custom case featuring branding for the first-person limb mangler, Soldier of Fortune: Payback. Interested in the full specs for this beast (estimated retail value $4999), hit 'em up after the break.

As always, there are official rules you should probably avail yourself of, but we'll share the most important ones with you here: you can only enter once per day (we'll remind you daily) and you need to be 18 or older and live in the US (sorry, we don't make the laws). The contest will be open for two weeks and we'll pick a single (very lucky) winner at 5pm ET on Tuesday, December 4th.

For today's entry, let us know how embarrassingly underpowered your current gaming PC is. We'll start: we're rocking a 486 – DX2, thank you very much – and 640kb ought to be enough for anybody. You?
