This is a pretty big week here at PC Perspective as we released our highly anticipated review of the Intel Sandy Bridge-E and X79 platform.  If you haven't read that over, you need to do so, right away!!  But we also have some impressive gear to giveaway thanks to our friends at MSI and their "Gear Up with MSI" campaign!

What are the prizes?  I know that's what you want to know first...

Wow, these are some stellar prizes!  First prize basically gets the components required for one of the fastest gaming rigs on the planet while the 2nd prize will be able to play Batman: Arkham City with all the top settings! 

So what do you have to do to win these prizes?  The steps are simple:

  1. Make a comment on this post thanking MSI for this kick ass contest!!  That's pretty simple right?  You don't have to register, though we would appreciate it!
  2. Like MSI on Facebook:
    1. (Just a hint, they have a lot of Facebook-specific contests throughout the year!)
  3. Like PC Perspective on Facebook:
  4. Follow PC Perspective on Twitter:
  5. Circle PC Perspective on Google+:
    1. (Another hint, comments on our G+ post about this contest get another entry!)

We will pick random winners in our pool of entries on Wednesday, the 7th of December!  Sorry, US and Canada residents only for this one!  If you don't have a Facebook/Twitter/Google+ account commenting here will still enter you.

Oh, and if you haven't seen the other contest MSI is running around the release of Batman: Arkham City, you should check out this page on their site.  Posting a photo of yourself dressed up like Batman has never been so lucrative!

I've been researching the possibility of an upgrade and both the MSI 580 Lightning and the MSI (8D) had made it to the short list. I watch the PCper Podcast and TWICH as often as I can and I greatly appreciate MSI for doing this contest.

Thanks MSI for this kick ass contest!!!

Thanks MSI for this kick ass contest!! Really eager to try out some of your highly praised & exquisitely engineered products! Would really love to win 2nd Prize since I don't need anything too extravagant, but I wouldn't exactly complain if I won 1st Prize either. ;) I'm in desperate need of an upgrade over my current Northwood Pentium 4 based system, & either of these Prizes would be an amazing starting point.
Also, keep up the great work PCPer! I love your site, reviews, & insights & I visit it almost daily. Tho I admit, I finally registered just to say that (& also to join this kick ass contest of course), so I hope that scores me some points. ;-) Looking forward to many more exciting years of news, reviews, & continued prosperity from you guys. Stay classy you two!
