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!

Thanks ASUS for your sponsorship of PC Perspective and for enabling them to provide a great giveaway. A future feature I would like to see on video cards is an embedded simple version of a Linux distro. One that would provide an "instant boot" into a basic environment for quick, simple tasks. This feature exists on some motherboards, but it would be nice to have as an option on more commonly and easily replaced hardware.

Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway Asus!

What I'd like is for a video card manufacturer to make some sort of support system to hook onto the case to support the weight of such large cards. Otherwise the entire weight of the card is put onto the one pcie slot.

The new look is great! My system could definately use a GTX 570

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring. As for new features, how about a pre-filled, closed-loop liquid cooling system.

Thanks ASUS! Would be great to win this card since I just built my new computer using the ASUS GTX-570 (exact same card)!!! Just couldn't afford 2 of them at this time. SLI config would be awesome.

Built in braces to hold up the back of the card would be a nice addition for the future.

Awesome of you ASUS for sponsoring PCPer and thank you for offering this awesome card!

This would go great w/ the ASUS Rampage III that I am saving up for my 1st build.

As far as what would be nice to see in the feuture would be some sort of dust filter with a slide on slide off style on the intakes to help prevent dust from gathering in the GPU.

Things I already like about this card is what ASUS has to offer in ways of software. It comes with 2 utilities ASUS Gamer OSD software and Smart Doctor. Another thing is this card has better cooling!

Thanks ASUS! I want to see more water-cooled cards in the future. It's less noisy and takes up less space, all the while keeping the card nice and cool.

Thanks ASUS for its sponsorship of PC Perspective and awesome prize!
I would like future graphics cards to do 3D without glasses like the Nintendo 3DS.

Thanks Asus for the sponsorship of PC Perspective. Quality products at a good price! and not just video cards, everything.

-#1 Tie between quieter and more efficient. Which sorta go together because if they become more efficient they won't need as much electricity which brings the heat, therefore reducing the fan speed/size.

-#3 Would have to go to a size reduction. While not as important as the above, I still think it should be in the top 3.

Thanks ASUS, love your hardware.

Some way to hook up the PCI-E slots to a separate external video card unit seems like a pretty good idea at this point. Desk space I have, computer case volume is at a premium.

Thank you ASUS for sponsoring PC Perspective. As for what feature I would be interested in the future, smaller versions of more powerful video cards which don't sacrifice performance would be very attractive to the majority of game enthusiasts.

How generous!! you're giving away a ASUS GTX 570! Million thanks for ASUS!! words are not enough,this is priceless now.

Wish for faster gaming card & suggest you a new type of EXTERNAL graphic cards for computers for high performance with cooling(with lights also). So it should with stylish unique look designed. So it gives you attraction inside & outside of the computer. This would be amazing & cool!! you know what I mean.. So it solves the lack of space inside the pc case too.
