The final stage of our rolling Radeon giveaway is upon us, and it involves the juiciest prize yet. This time, we're giving away an Asus Radeon HD 7970 graphics card with 3GB of memory, a triple-slot cooler, and enough display outputs to light up Times Square.
Asus isn't messing around with that triple-slot cooler, I can tell you from experience. It's incredibly quiet in everyday use.
Also included are the same games from the Never Settle bundle that you'd get if you bought this graphics card right now, including:
If you were to buy the card and games separately, you'd have to pay over $600.
To enter the giveaway:
The last few parts are entirely optional and won't improve your chance of winning. Probably.
We do have a few requirements for entry, which are spelled out 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 December 13, 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 December 16, 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 AMD 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 repetitive strain injury, 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.
