John Henry told his captain,
“A man ain’t nothin’ but a man,
But before I let your steam drill beat me down,
I’d die with a hammer in my hand. Lord, Lord.

I am on a mission to show that doddering old women can be geeks too. So far, my quest has killed four computers. Maybe better tools would help?
I learned some of my best stuff from a retired lady that worked for Microsoft as a Hardware Engineer.. One of the nicest "Geeks" ive ever met, always had fresh cookies ready and was a HUGE and do I mean HUGE World of Warcraft fan.. She even Cosplays as a Elf Mage at the local Comic Cons..
 
I'm building my first AMD computer next month! I'm going with the Ryzen 5 3600X.
I really like my Ryzen R5-1600. I too will be upgrading but probably not till during the Christmas buying season when prices tend to go lower. Right now the CPU I want the R7-3800X is $399 and am hoping it drops to closer to $329 by then. I'll have a bunch of spare parts by then and will likely re-purpose the 1600 into another build.

Very nice. That's one powerful CPU! I've been tired of waiting since March, so I'll probably buy right away :) The new 7nm process should be worth the wait.

Spyro ReIgnited!!! For PC. 🆒 I already played through it on PS4, but I can't wait to see crazy purple dragon platforming at 100+ FPS. I even have the 144Hz monitor for buttery smooth platforming awesomeness! Nearly two decades later, and the nostalgia still hasn't worn off for me.

Edit: I forgot to add two other games. Hammerwatch 2, and Darksiders Genesis. I'm really loving Isometric gameplay with WASD movement. =D

Have winners been announced.
No...

Not all hammers are built to last -- just ask Thor. However, once in a thousand generations, the world finds one hammer to rule them all. And most hammers don’t even come preloaded with screwdrivers. How lazy is that?



It's hammer time once more!

You may find yourself deemed worthy of wielding one of the infamous (and extremely useful!) Tom’s Hardware hammers. Three winners will be chosen at random from the replies to this article thread during the course of the event.



If you’re wondering what kind of comment to add, well with E3 in mind, what games are you most looking forward to playing? Which studios held your favorite event?

Entering the contest is super simple:

  • Leave a comment in the forum post for this article (only comments in this post are eligible).
  • After the deadline to enter, we’ll randomly select 3 winners.
  • Post your response in the forums before 11:59 PM ET on Friday, June 28, 2019!
If you’re a winner, we'll reach out to you via private message on our forums for your shipping information. If you don't reply to our message with your shipping address by July 5, we'll move on to the next winner, so keep an eye on your inbox!

If you’re reading this, the contest has begun!

Good luck and have fun!

The giveaways for hammers will be happening pretty regularly. We'd love to get them out to as many eligible folks as possible. In future drawings we'll adjust how long they are open, so sometimes they may be shorter windows with fewer entries, but they'll cycle back regularly.

Since things close up tonight, I'll start picking winners on Monday. If I hear from all eligible winners quickly, we'll announce them first. If not, then we'll pick the next round of winners on the 5th of July, until we've given them out.

Good luck!
