    Props to nVidia for the quick shipping all the way from Taipei, and of course thanks to Mr. Tweak and TweakTown!

    Woo, they made it!

    Everyone will get a chance to win more gear next month - I want to run a giveaway every month if everything goes to plan

    UPS delivered it in the morning, and then later today they delivered the ram I had ordered on newegg last week. Needless to say, it was very much like Christmas all over again.. except this time I got presents!! :D

    I put together all the stuff I have so far for my new computer:

    Antec P180 Case - $90 after rebate
    Ultra-V 600W PSU - $25 after rebate
    Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 Motherboard - $100 off craig's list
    Intel e6300 CPU - $100 off craig's list
    1GB (2x512MB) Corsair XMS2 ddr2 800 memory - $130 on newegg
    old cd rom drive, monitor, keyboard, speakers, mouse
    and of course one of my new ASUS 7600GTs!!


    I plugged it all in with an old 15GB hard drive and I'm able to get to the bios fine.. everything looks good. Now all I need to do is get a nice copy of windows xp and I'm ready to start tweaking!

    I'm facing a problem.One delivery boy from UPS gave me a sealed envelope today instead of my 7600GTs.After opening it, I found a letter which is saying that the consignment is held at MUMBAI (an Indian state) as the Sales-Tax Waybill or a from called FORM-50 is required to bring the package to my city.

    I've experienced this problem b4.I know that when I'll go to collect that FORM 50 from my city's Sales Tax Department,they will ask for a huge bribe.I had to pay these illegal bribes b4 & I don't know why these officials r never satisfied with their salary.I donno how much they r gonna charge me this time.

    I'm attaching a picture of what I've received from UPS instead of my prize.

    It would be better if Nvidia would have send my prize through DHL coz DHL delivers straightway to the customer's premises.They don't hold any shipment bcoz of any missing FORM which is only needed so that the officials can ask us to bribe them.The shipment was fast though.

    I donno what is the operating process of UPS here in India & I also donno how long will it take to receive the prize.By the way thanks to the whole TweakTown team,Nvidia,Asus & specially to Mr.Tweak.

    I was hoping that I'll post the pictures first,but neway congrats to Xaglx.I'm gonna post the pics of mine too as soon as I receive them.

    I've just visited the website of the UPS to track the shipment & have a look what I've found there.

    Got my cards today!!! Thanks again Tweaktown! They even have sequential serial numbers!

    It's going to be a rough month or two just looking at the pair of them while my bank account builds up to the point where I can buy all the necessary parts to build a new system that is worthy. I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

    Thanks for ur suggestion but I don't have any friend or relative who stays at Mumbai & as the consignment has been destined to my city, those Sales Tax officials will not handover the package to anybody else.I must have to collect the waybill (a clever technique by which bribe can be collected) from my city's Sales Tax Department by paying Sales Tax & then I have to provide that duly filled-up waybill to the UPS courier company in my city.I donno how much that Tax would be.Those UPS guys will then send that waybill to the Mumbai Sales Tax Department.Upon receiving of the waybill,Mumbai will then release my package to my city.So, u can understand it's a very lengthy process to receive such a gift in India from another country.In India, only DHL couriers everything to the customer premises.If u send something to India from outside India by other courier except DHL, they won't deliver the package to the customer directly.They will send u a letter that ur package has been held by Sales Tax Dept.I think they receive a huge commission from the Sales Tax guys as they r giving the Sales Tax officials the opportunity to take bribe from customers.The whole system has got corrupted here.

    Now, I'm suffering from Jondice & heavy cough & cold & my doctor has suggested me to take atleast 30 days bedrest but if I take that, I'll be forfeited from getting my prize.I need to go to the Sales Tax Dept. of my city but I'm too weak.I hope I'll be able to go after 4-5 days.
