As we announced in today's podcast, Asus has kindly donated one of its GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards—the ENGTX460 DirectCU/2DI/1GD5—as part of its sponsorship of the TR Podcast. We've decided to organize one of our famous giveaways so that, by the end of the month, one lucky podcast listener will be able to claim to the prize.
The ENGTX460 packs a gig of GDDR5 RAM and has a core clock speed of 675MHz. Asus outfits it with its DirectCU cooler, which has three heat pipes and purportedly allows temperatures 20% lower than those of the stock GTX 460. This card also features improved power efficiency and voltage tweaking capabilities. Asus completes the package with a three-year warranty.
How do you enter for a chance to win? Simple: read the rules and regulations below, then listen to the podcast for answers to the three questions below. Once you've found the answers, fill out the form at the bottom of this page with your name, contact details, and answers.
Before we get into the contest rules, we'd like to tip our hats to Asus for supporting The Tech Report and making this giveaway possible.
Rules and regulations
Sorry, but this contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (except Quebec) only.
To enter, fill out the form below, correctly answering three easy questions. We clearly reveal the answers to these questions in episode 81 of The Tech Report Podcast.
Only one entry allowed per person, household, or e-mail address. Multiple entries per person, household or address are not permitted. Please don't try to game the system by entering your girlfriend, wife, kids or pets. We'll probably disqualify you if you do.
We will be accepting giveaway entries between the time the podcast goes up (on February 16) and February 23 at noon CST. We'll then choose our winner in a random drawing from among all eligible entries. The winner will be announced on the site and will also be notified via e-mail on February 25, 2011. The winner must claim his prize by the end of the day on Monday, February 28, 2011, or he will forfeit his prize and we will draw a new winner.
You must include your full name and a physical shipping address with your entry. Only the winner's name will be announced on the site. We will not share the address or other personal information with our sponsors or anyone else. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. TR reserves the right to disqualify entries that appear to be attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way.
The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.
We will accept entries only from residents of the United States and Canada (Quebec excepted). No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. Neither TR nor Asus is responsible for any taxes on the prize, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prize with other products, or health issues such as RSI, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prize. We may answer questions and offer clarifications of the rules in this comments thread.
