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! I love your products!

I would love to see more powerful mobile cards. I will not buy another laptop until they are both affordable and will play all of my favorite games at high quality settings.

Thanks Asus for sponsoring PCPer! And for making great hardware.

How about customizing the graphic cards with larger memories and other hardware improvements.

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring.

As for a feature, some kind of faster than light propulsion system would be useful.

Thanks PCPerspective & ASUS. I would love GPU to actually be more efficient and get smaller while maintaining it's speed and power. Why are they getting larger and blocking slots on Mobo these days.

Thanks you Asus for sponsoring! I would love to see a high end single slot solution again!

Thanks ASUS for supporting PCPerspective. How about a Josh Walrath version of the next generation Nvidia GPU card.

THANKS ASUS, that direct ICU fan looks amazing.

Thanks ASUS for its sponsorship of this PC Perspective giveaway. I'd like to see a higher end GPUs with dual slot DirectCU implementation, also a water cooling ready GPU in partnership with some respectable brand (maybe EK) will be nice. Also a thing that always bugged me, with my EGTX460 DirectCU i received a DVI to HDMI adapter but no miniHDMI to HDMI, that's plain stupid! Why would I use it when it doesn't carry audio and I have a real HDMI 1.4 with all it's goodness right next to it?

Congratulations ASUS on partnering with "PC Perspective v4.0".
Your nasty new GTX570 has certainly got the tech dudes licking your ass in order to score a free one.

And I've never been adverse to jumping on a bandwagon, even if it means having to lift my normal, everyday, gutter standards, to the lofty heights of giving your tasty rear a fat 'schmooz'.

Into the future, I'd love to see wireless output from a GPU, I'm tired of being caught up in all the electrical paraphernalia, the red tape, and the bureaucracy, that links my tower and my monitor.

;)

Thank you for sponsoring PC Perspective. I go there every day and sometimes more. I look for a graphics card that is powererful, generates little heat, is quite, and produces a beautiful screen. Just got a GTX 550 but would have liked to get a higher end one.

Thanks for your sponsor ship of pcper.com Asus! One thing that I think would be a cool feature for video cards in upgradeable memory. Would be a nice cheap way to boost performance maybe?

Thank you Asus for sponsoring PC Perspective.

As far as features that I would like to see in a video card? Honestly, I'd like to see manufacturers offering their own water cooling blocks for their cards. Something made to cover the unique features of individual cards could come in handy for those who want to push their systems to the limit.

Many Thanks Asus you guys rock for sponsoring PC Perspective.

Many thanks PC Perspective for the great site and reviews and podcast.

Thank you very much to Asus for supporting PCPer and for continuing to develop innovative products. To Ryan and the team: thank you for the V4.0 update / site refresh. The most important features I like to see pushed forward in a video card is power efficiency and low temps under load. I know it isn't a fancy request but I don't want a computer to act like a convection oven.

Hey, thanks ASUS! Very, very silent fans, that would be nice.

Thank You Asus for sponsoring P C Perspective. Would love to take home the Asus GTX 570 Direct CU II video card. As said before I would like to see a quiet high performance card.

Thanks Asus! you make great products

Thank you pegASUS (wink-wink) for sponsoring PC Perspective.
And thanks for high quality products.

I'm occasional gamer and mostly using GPU for video decoding.
So i'd like to have OFFICIAL support for OPEN technology similar to Lucid Virtu or Hybrid SLI.

Basically it should be hardware-independent GPU-switching technology.

I'd like ASUS to head (or at least participate in) group of vendors that would push this consumer-friendly tech to Intel/AMD/Nvidia.

PS: I know, it's almost impossible, but "girl can dream", right?

I want to first thank ASUS for its sponsorship of PC Perspective! What a great oppurtunity for a great Asus product! Im a big time Asus fan and anything they due is of interest to me especially in the form of high performance video cards and motherboards!This card the ASUS GeForce GTX 570 DirectCU II is just amazing to look at much less its sheer potential not much not to like!The look is very appealing its self it makes you proud to own and show it off, AND the Cooling is just amazing!All the necessary coonections I would need and the upgrade potential to my paticular situation my current rig Im on now is sporting a Geforce 6800GT kinda prehistoric upside the Geforce 570 by its self it would bring to life this dorment Rig and would no doubt be a blessing to own!As far as graphic cards in the future Im always impressed with the design of the cooling being overly adequate and appealing to look at quiet if possible but not that much of a burden looks and oveclocking capabilties are a must!!As I said Im an avid Asus fan and having the ultimate build is always a goal and being lucky enough to win this graphics card to me would be a blessing!Good luck to all here and again thanks PC Perspective and Asus for a great oppurtunity!

I had to edit this and put in my email address/ amdcrankitup@lycos.com also twitter G1killer !! I think Im registered in the forums but for some reason I could not get in Ill try later! Thanks again did not want to miss out on the possible chance and you not have my email!!
