Throughout November and early December 2016 we at Gladiator Computers ran a competition for our customers to design the perfect gaming rig,the prize being the PC they designed and a chance to work with us for 6 months as a guest designer.

We were overwhelmed by the response, with so many fantastic entries, judging took much longer than we planned, but it was well worth the wait. Istiak Ahmed, a 17 year old from Ilford was presented his prize by Aria Taheri, Gladiator CEO and Barry Loynes from ASUS, he also took away a bag of Gladiator & ASUS swag. His winning design featured the Intel i5 6600K, an ASUS GTX 1060 (6GB) and 120GB Samsung SSD making for a good all-round gaming PC.

Further to this we had two winners whose system names were chosen for the production models of Istiak design. These were the Gladiator Firestarter & Gladiator White Fire, thanks to Anthony Pritchard and Ranny Gutierrez for your suggestions; they both received a £100 Steam voucher for their efforts.

The Gladiator FireStarter & WhiteFire are now on sale at the Discounted Launch price for a limited time offer only, so make sure you grab one today.

We will be running regular competitions large and small throughout the year, so watch out for the next one. It's always worth taking part just like Istiak, you could be our next big winner.
