Amber Bouman

We're starting this week off right - with a contest! What better way to console yourself through that wicked case of the Mondays than by getting a chance to win this sweet ThermalTake Shock One gaming headset?

If we've got your interest, then here are the details: just send us a photo of your favorite PC (or PC-related) purchase, with a sentence or two on why it gets the title of "Best PC thingy I ever spent my hard-earned cash on" to

If we use your photo/caption in Thursday's gallery, you're automatically entered to win! We'll pick a winner at random from the gallery and that lucky person will get to rock a set of headphones that our own Alex Castle has called "a solid all-rounder," featuring "solid construction and good all-around sound quality." The usual terms and conditions do, of course, apply (and are detailed below in the fine print). Now, get to submitting! We want to see your entries!

*And, if this headset prize or contest doesn't quite appeal to you, stick around - we'll have another contest on Friday!*
