Game modding has a long history, dating back to the days of Doom, and though many other franchises have dropped support for fan-made addons, Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls series continues to embrace modding, resulting in tens of thousands of free mods that add new quests, new heroes, new graphics, and a whole lot more. The latest Elder Scrolls release, Skyrim, launched 11.11.11, and already you can download over 6,100 mods from Skyrim Nexus, the net’s most popular Skyrim mod resource.

And now, with the release of Bethesda’s Creation Kit™, the official mod development toolset, that number is set to rise rapidly. To celebrate its launch we've partnered with Skyrim Nexus, PNY and iBuyPower to give modders a chance of winning Special Edition Skyrim-themed PNY GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics cards and a one of a kind Skyrim PC from iBuyPower. Worth $2,000, the system’s enviable specs are as follows:

  • Case: Custom painted NZXT Tempest 410 with Skyrim graphic
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2500k
  • Cooling: 120mm Liquid Cooling System
  • Memory: 16GB Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600
  • Video Card: 2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560Ti Special Skyrim Edition
  • Motherboard: Intel Z68 Motherboard
  • Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 850W
  • Primary (OS) Drive: 120GB Kingston HyperX SSD
  • Data Hard Drive: 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
  • Optical Drive: LG 12x Blu-Ray Re-Writer
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

Submissions will be accepted until April 7th, 2012, meaning there’s plenty of time to develop something truly special that will enhance Skyrim for gamers the world over. Good luck!
