Tonight during CES, TigerDirect.com will hold its 15th annual Build Your Own PC Race, with 30 journalists competing against each other for the top three spots. Each spot has a different donation made to a charity of the winner's choosing, with third place at $250, second at $500, and first at $1,000. OverclockersClub.com's very own senior reviewer ccokeman, Frank Dimmick, is competing in the event, and luckily it'll be streamed so everyone can see how well he does. Frank's charity is the Leary Firefighters Foundation, which was started by actor Denis Leary in 2000 after a fire took the life of his cousin and four firefighters in Worcester, Massachusetts.

The charity event begins at 6PM PST and runs until 9PM, with the Build Your Own PC Race starting soon after. A streaming video is available below for everyone to watch and cheer on Frank. On behalf of everyone at OCC, good luck Frank!

Tiger Directs Facebook has a lot of the pics from the event. It'd be great if you guys were tagged in them.
