June 2008 Forum Drawing - XFX GeForce 9600 GT Graphics Card

Post by Apoptosis » Sun Jun 01, 2008 8:48 am

XFX Technologies has a killer prize that will be given away to one lucky forum member later this month. The prize is an XFX GeForce 9600 GT 512MB Graphics Card! XFX isn't sending out the winner a standard card though as this will be the XXX Alpha Dog edition, which means it is as fast as the come! I personally reviewed the standard edition of the card a few months back and found that it was great! The card that the drawing winner wil get is 50MHz faster on the core, 200MHz faster on the memory and 125MHz faster on the shader clock! The standard card is $179.99 on PriceGrabber, so here is your chance to get a great gaming card for being an active member here on the forums!

Image

It will be a killer card and perform like the one we reviewed here: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/666/4/

Here are the rules for this months contest. These are provided to help clear things up for those that enter and might win. This is a drawing type contest.

RULES:
1) This contest is open to active forum members.
2) The winner will be shipped his/her prize as soon as possible (if being shipped internationally (Canada for example) it could take 4-8 weeks by USPS)
3) The winner must have 7 posts between June 1st, 2008 and June 15, 2008 - DO NOT DIG UP "OLD" THREADS (i.e. > 1 MONTH) - these posts will not count and are subject to deletion.
4) Reply to this post to enter the contest and that does not count as one post!
5) Spamming (~5 pointless posts over one or two days will void your entry)
6) Depending on your location and how fast XFX sends out the card determines when you will get it. That means it could take 4-8 weeks to reach you. Since we don't physically have the card we can't change shipping companies or tell you when it will exactly arrive or ship.
7) The contest ends June 15th, 2008 at midnight with the winner being drawn the following day


Recap
To enter the contest please contribute 7 posts to the forums this month without spamming anything and be sure to read the rules! Feel free to invite your friends to join the forums and enter also! If everyone can agree to the rules and can make 7 posts on the forums this month then please feel free to enter the contest. The winner will be drawn out of a hat at the end of the month and the prize will then be sent out after the full mailing address and phone number of the winner has been received. If you don't claim your prize within 7 days the drawing will take place again.

If it isn't can I give up staff privileges for the duration of the contest? :finga:
