Well, this should be fun. In celebration of the Never Settle game bundle deal, the folks at AMD offered us some Radeon video cards and games to give away to TR readers. Naturally, we jumped at the chance. We'll have several sets of cards and games to give away over the next few weeks, if all goes as planned.
Up first is a pair of Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB cards made by HIS. They look like so:
They're intended to be paired up in a CrossFire team to deliver even higher performance, but you're welcome to separate them and install 'em in a couple of needy PCs whose integrated graphics just aren't cutting it, too. We'll never tell.
Whoever wins these two cards will also get the same games he would if he had purchased them at a participating reseller:
I believe the cards and games are worth about $390, all told.
To enter to win, all you have to do is sign up using the form below and correctly answer one easy question. The info you need is contained in our review of the Radeon HD 7770. You might also consider "liking" us on Facebook or following us on Twitter—but that part is totally optional and only for the smartest and best-looking readers.
We do have a few requirements for entry, which are spelled out in breathtakingly original prose below.
Rules and regulations
Sorry, but this contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (except Quebec) only.
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 this post goes up and November 27, 2012 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. The winner must claim his prize by the end of the day on November 30, 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.
