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!

Been using MSI products since the 845PE Neo 2 Platinum (which I still have and is in use). Its been great to see MSI evolve over the years, and the line of products improve exponentially as well. I wonder if post #250 is my lucky number ;)

First and foremost, thanks for supporting podcasts and websites like this

For what it's worth, I'm in the process of building 2 PC's for my home. And I always try and buy from vendors that support PC Per and other sites I get my information from.

I hope you get a good return on your investment, and ohhh man I hope I get t save some cash and win something this time out!!
