We've only just drawn the winner of our XFX Radeon HD 6870 giveaway, yet XFX has already graced us with more fresh hardware to give out to a handful of lucky readers.
Today, we're setting off on a new saga of contests, as part of which we'll be giving away five XFX products in total: three power supplies and two graphics cards. We're getting started with the PSUs—one will be given away each week over the course of the next three weeks.
This week's prize is the XFX Pro Series 850W PSU, pictured above. It features a single 12V rail, 80 Plus Bronze certification (which means 82-85% efficiency), a purportedly quiet 135-mm ball-bearing fan, SLI and CrossFire certification, and XFX's True Wattage Guarantee. XFX tells us this puppy can maintain 850W of continuous output even at an operating temperature of 50°C.
To sign up for a chance to win the XFX Pro Series 850W, simply answer the two easy questions below and enter your details. The winners will be selected as part of a random draw. Just make sure you read the rules and regulations below carefully before entering.
Naturally, we'd like to thank XFX for supporting TR 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 two easy questions. The answers are revealed clearly in our review of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition.
Only one entry is 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 this post goes up (March 18) and March 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 March 24. The winner must claim his prize by the end of the day on Sunday, March 27, 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 XFX 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.
