Another week, another free PSU for one lucky reader. This time around, it's an XFX Pro Series 650W unit that Newegg sells for $90. The Pro Series consolidates its 12V power on a single rail and offers 80 Plus Bronze certification. SLI and CrossFire support are also on the menu, and the whole thing is cooled by a purportedly quiet 135-mm fan.
Over 400 gerbils entered the contest and answered our skill-testing questions. From that group, we've selected one winner at random. Congratulations, Isaac Anderson, you've just won a new PSU. Mr. Anderson (I'm typing that in my Agent Smith voice) should have an email from our biz guy, Adam Eiberger, waiting in his inbox. If he doesn't claim the prize within 72 hours, we'll draw another winner.
Thanks to XFX for kicking in the PSU for this giveaway, and to everyone who entered. As always, don't be too discouraged if you name wasn't called. We have more giveaways in store, including a couple of graphics cards from XFX. Stay tuned.
