Tips for Getting Sponsored to Build a Computer

I have used CNET for a long time to review new devices and computer parts. However I am new to the forums.
What brings me here today? I need somewhat more personalized help with my current situation.
I'm a Computer Technician, a Web Designer, and an avid PC Gamer. I usually save whatever money I can to keep up with technology. After some job troubles I fell behind on getting things updated. Now that I have gotten into a full time career I can start to get things back in order. But with a baby on the way I still have no money to save for computer upgrades and at this point I basically have to upgrade everything and might as well build a whole new rig.
As I mentioned I am an Avid Gamer. I have been getting more and more involved with World of Warcraft. Running my own guild and several raid teams. I already maintain a guild website and a second site dedicated to media related to the guild. I wanted to get into live streaming myself but with outdated equipment that is very hard to do. I have the software in place but now need hardware that can handle it.
I've heard of people getting sponsored to build a computer for various things. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to go about being sponsored. Who would be the right people to contact? I know what I would want in a perfect world but what should you ask for? Specific parts? Anything they have laying around?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
