Home Server Draw - Hardware specs
I thought I'd put up the details of the specs of the boxes we will be using and giving away at the end of the Summer Road Trip.
To re-iterate - if you want to win this - you'll need to register and turn up and fill in an eval form on the day to be in the draw to win one of these puppies...
- Gigabyte GA-MA68SM-S2 AM2 Motherboard (*Onboard DVI and VGA ports *4xDDR2 800 slots* PCI-Ex16 slot *2xPCI *4x SATAII *1 PCI-E x1 *RAID 0,1,0+1,5 *GbE *8ch ALC888 audio *IEEE1394)
- AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core 6400+
- 4x 2Gb DDR2-800 A-Data RAM (8 Gb total)
- 2x Western Digital Caviar SE 500Gb SATA II (16Mb Cache) HDD
- BENQ SATA DVD RW
- Silverstone SG01 SFF Case - Black
- EZ Cool 500W PSU (*20+4 pin connector *2 SATA *6 x 4-pin Molex *2 FDD *8 pin 12V connector *No PCI-E connector *500W *120mm fan for quiet operation)
Also, the product team at Microsoft have agreed to throw in a copy of Vista Ultimate and Windows Home server with these machines (thanks guys!).
At the end of the road trip we will do a prize draw for two of these machines from the evaluation forms we collect. We will then check to make sure the form is matched to a registration, and then contact the winners via email. Judges decisions will be final, etc, and the prize will be drawn by either Chris or Jeremy (i.e. by the .Net User Group).
*UPDATE* - note that there is no keyboard, monitor or mouse included with this.
