You can't win if you don't enter.

Well if any of you do win you have to be quite lucky since the odds are never great in eVGA's yearly scavenger hunt contest.

The odds of winning at any of EVGA contests are really small, they always have a huge turnout............... :mrgreen:

I've also won one time something on their Anniversary Contest. I think it was a PC game :) ...I don't really remember as it wasn't something "that" big and it was 2 or 3 years ago... :?

What did you mean by posting this link?

If you meant to share the "Gold Ribbons" you already found, I personally think it's unfair for those who already found them by themselves, by it's up to you to decide whether you want to post 'em or not... :roll:

I could always post all the ten links, but I didn't...hope you understand... :|

Agreed, theres already too many forums posting the ribbon locations and answers. A lot of people entering who in my opinion have not followed the rules and found the ribbons on their own.

Its all those lazy people who don't want to spend the time to find the golden ribbons which they have plenty of time to do and it isn't that hard.

Yeah, I also think it wasn't too hard, though it took me around 3 hours I think to find 'em all... :roll:

it was actually suppose to be a link to a specific topic in the knowledge base, I didn't notice that it was just linking to the main page.

Anyway, the link alone is worthless. Had I posted the link and the answers to the questions, then maybe you would have something to cry piss and moan about.

I entered it as well, i tried last time too but couldn't find all 10, but i am eligible this time.

That said, personally all i want is a video card or maybe one of those nice full systems, dinner with some NVIDIA head honcho isn't my idea of a good night out, unless there is lots of malt whiskey on offer. Maybe he will bring a goody bag with him for the winner as well eh, i would be stunned if they didn't get some NVIDIA products.

The Japanese F1 prize sounds nice, but i would probably try and sell it if i could. :P

the only bad thing about this contest is that we have too little chances to win something
