As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift recently to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The tenth (!!) prize is a wicked ASUS GeForce GTX 570 DirectCU II card that is a triple-slot design and that supports 3D Vision Surround out of the box!

What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking ASUS for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as what feature in a graphics card you would most like to see in the future.  Be creative! You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective. I would like to see an integrated liquid cooler on the ultra high-end graphics card in the future :D

Thanks ASUS for the giveaway I'd love to fold with that card and like others have said a shroud or heatsink on the top so we can see it thru our side window

Asus, thank you so much for sponsoring this site, which is my go-to site. Without your sponsorship I would have been lost many a time. For a future graphics card feature, I would love the merging of SLI and Crossfire into one standard so I could use 2 card from either nVidea or AMD together. That would be wonderful.

Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway Asus! I really want to see some great external graphics solutions for notebooks. Given the bandwidth that the new thunderbolt ports have, I would love to be able to dock my laptop to a sweet graphics card for gaming, and then be able to undock it to take with me on the go for great battery life and portability. Keep up the good products!

Thank you ASUS for the prize, you guys exceed my expectations with every new product. Be sure to do the same with the next gpu - with maybe a oc button on the gpu pcb. of course a safe oc. that would come in hand for everyone who wants oc but doesn`t know too much about it.

Thank you Asus! I would like to see more use of the power of graphics cards for video transcoding. And more eyecandy in games to challenge our high end cards!

Asus has always stood for ever improving quality. The same goes for PCPer. Such a great match together. Thank you Asus for sponsoring PCPer. And thank you PCPer for bringing us such great information.

Holy crap, 3 slots. Better run cool for that size. Thanks asus for continued sponsorship. And for my gpu feedback, i'd like to see the ability to utilize all the outputs simultaneously.

Looks like a great card. I might be giving it a ride because I just burned up a brand new MSI R6950 tein frozr II. (Back to Frys)

New feature...I would like see powerful gaming card that includes a TV tuner maybe even a cable card slot. I've got a lot of devices and not enough slots.

ASUS thanks for support the real gamers!!!

Thanks ASUS! The more displays I can use the better!

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective! Would love to see more power efficient cards in the future!

Thanks for sponsoring PCPER ASUS!! Definitly would like to see more liquid cooled variations of GFX cards.

thanks for the prize ASUS and PCPER as well. some stock water cooling would be a nice new feature.

Thanks going out to ASUS for providing a great graphic card to be given away to celebrate the new PC Perspective web site!

Ever notice that big graphic cards tend to hang low in the case, since they're only connected via one PCIE slot? How about adding a kickstand, of sorts, attached to the card that props up against the edge of a lower PCI/E slot? Sounds silly, but it would work. After all, motorcycles have kickstands, why not a screaming fast graphic card? :)

Thanks Asus for supporting Pcper. I love the 3D vision support.

Thanks Asus for sponsoring PCPer. Would love to see some cards that make the market more interesting, like the EVGA 2win. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for that sponsorship Asus!

I want to see a board that uses liquid metal cooling in the future, melting something like gallium for cooling, just for kicks, even if it's too toxic for general sale.

Thanks Pc Perspective and Asus for sponsoring the contest.

YAY!!! Another contest!! Thanks guys. Your sponsorship is always appreciated ASUS. I hope there will be a water cooled version of this coming soon.

ASUS, thanks for sponsoring PC Perspective! As a relatively new reader of these site I find it both interesting and informative and am happy to know such a wonderful hardware company is helping behind the scenes.

As for a desired feature, I'd like to see a modular graphics card. Since graphics cards of any given series/generation are (seemly) built upon the same technology, why not have a GPU that can be upgraded over the lifespan of that generation without replacing the entire card? Provide more than adequate cooling systems and pipelines on the PCB along with a lower cost GPU (e.g. GTX560) which can be upgraded at a later time to a high-end GPU (e.g. GTX580/590). Not only would it allow the consumer a lower initial investment cost but would avoid the incompatibility/inconsistency of SLI support with many games which consumers experience when they purchase a second card down the line for performance improvement.

Thank you Asus! This is my #1 favorite online community and I really appreciate your sponsoring it!

( Winning this card would make my summer. )

What I want to see in a GPU is more GPGPU applications. Maybe Asus could offer up a monthly bounty for best implementations of GPGPU in daily-use consumer programs. Offloading more onto the GPU would definitely make them more useful.

What would also be nice is a 'task manager' for GPUs, so that these programs could be forcibly kicked off of the GPUs. Also, an execution blacklist for GPGPU features and advanced management of what programs are allowed to execute what on which GPUs. GPUs are going to quickly need to protect applications running on them.

This could even allow GPUs to become even better multi taskers than they already are. Hey, if the GPU can be used to manage network traffic, why not make that an option? If the GPU can be used to process positional audio in games, why not? If it can handle working on things like speech recognition or encryption I.E. truecrypt/keepass/other consumer encryption stuff, a monthly bounty to consumer products that implement GPU acceleration in their software would be awesome and would spur development quite a bit.

Give me a real reason to have two separate non-SLI/crossfire GPUs in my system!

Thank you ASUS for this great prize. I would like to see powerfull video cards with low profile and with no need for extra power. Maybe a better efficiency in cooling and why not something like "multiple cores" technology borrowed from the cpu should be implemented for more power.

Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway Asus! In the future I see modular graphics card. It's like a motherboard, and user have to install gpu, cooler and memory. On the other hand there should be slim graphics cards in the future. (Like a piece of paper :))

Thank you ASUS for this awesome card. I will like to see 10bit colour in the next generation.
