'Tis truly the season of giving here at TR. Much of that giving spirit can be attributed to the kind folks at XFX, who continue to supply us with components for our contests. On the heels of our recent power supply giveaways, XFX has volunteered one of its Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition graphics cards, which we'll be sending to one lucky TR reader.
The card belongs to XFX's top-of-the-line Black Edition series. It features higher-than-normal clock speeds of 940MHz for the GPU and 1150MHz for the memory, up from the default 900/1050MHz. XFX also outfits the card with dual fans, which should result in both lower temperatures and lower noise levels (since two fans can push the same amount of air at a lower speed than a single one). The XFX Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition currently sells for $249.99 at Newegg.
To enter our contest for a chance to win this card, have a look at the rules and regulations below, then listen to our latest podcast, and fill in the form below with the answer to the qualifying question and your contact details. (As always, we'll keep your information confidential.)
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 one easy question. We clearly reveal the answer to this question in episode 85 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 April 10) and April 17 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 April 19, 2011. The winner must claim his prize by the end of the day on Thursday, April 21, 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 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.
