UPDATE:  We have our winners! Congrats to the following users that submitted upgrade worthy PCs that will be shipped a free GeForce GTX 750 Ti courtesy of NVIDIA! 

  • D. Todorov
  • C. Fogg
  • K. Rowe
  • K. Froehlich
  • D. Aarssen

When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 750 Ti this month it convinced us to give this highly efficient graphics card a chance to upgrade some off-the-shelf, under powered PCs.  In a story that we published just a week ago, we were able to convert three pretty basic and pretty boring computers into impressive gaming PCs by adding in the $150 Maxwell-based graphics card.

If you missed the video we did on the upgrade process and results, check it out here.

Now we are going to give our readers the chance to do the same thing to their PCs.  Do you have a computer in your home that is just not up to the task of playing the latest PC games?  Then this contest is right up your alley.

Prizes: 1 of 5 GeForce GTX 750 Ti Graphics Cards

Your Task: You are going to have to do a couple of things to win one of these cards in our "Upgrade Story Giveaway."  We want to make sure these cards are going to those of you that can really use it so here is what we are asking for (you can find the form to fill out right here):

  1. Show us your PC that is in need of an upgrade!  Take a picture of your machine with this contest page on the screen or something similar and share it with us.  You can use Imgur.com to upload your photo if you need some place to put it.  An inside shot would be good as well.  Place the URL for your image in the appropriate field in the form below.
  2. Show us your processor and integrated graphics that need some help!  That means you can use a program like CPU-Z to view the processor in your system and then GPU-Z to show us the graphics setup.  Take a screenshot of both of these programs so we can see what hardware you have that needs more power for PC gaming!  Place the URL for that image in the correct field below.
  3. Give us your name and email address so we can contact you for more information if you win!
  4. Leave us a comment below to let me know why you think you should win!!
  5. Subscribing to our PCPer Live! mailing list or even our PCPer YouTube channel wouldn't hurt either...

That's pretty much it!  We'll run this promotion for 2 weeks with a conclusion date of March 13th. That should give you plenty of time to get your entry in.

Good luck!!

I guess my i7 4770k @ 4.5ghz with gtx780 is not worthy of this contest.

Then You need a downgrade, and swap with me.

I guess my i7 4770 with 16GB of ram due to get a pair of ASUS GTX 760's on Friday won't be worth of this contest, oh well, better let somebody else have one of these card's.

Are those last two comments touting your system specs really necessary? :-/

To someone who doesn't have such luxuries this is something great. So please don't kill the spirit of the give away.

Good luck to whoever wins. I hope it bring you some gaming joy! :-D

You must really be an idiot if you can't tell that I'm not being greedy. Now scram and don't come back.

I don't think it has anything to do with greed and everything to do with arrogance and elitism. "Oh look a contest for people with low end PCs, better post my amazing PC specs."

March 12, 2014 | 10:04 AM - Posted by arbiter

Same here IF i was greedy i would dust off my old athlon 64 3700+ rig in the closet, put the old 9800gtx+ i have laying around in and enter but I'm not.

I'm really excited for this contest, I built my fiancé a computer last year, but we don't have the money to spend on a new GPU. I'd hope to win for her, so we can game together, she has really gotten into guild wars 2 and Rust. thanks PC per!!

What if you have a much slower graphics card? I, for example, have a HD 5670.

March 5, 2014 | 01:08 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

You can still replace that card with the 750 Ti.

I've been playing pc games for like two years, I can't afford a gaming PC, and I don't think I will ever be able to. I run all games at 16-18 frames, and i do graphic editing and wait hours and hours for one picture to render. It sucks out here, and i really could use a graphics card upgrade. I have and HP Pavilion Slimline. It's many years old. 3GB of RAM. No graphics card. All pictures are on my Imgur. Thank you giys.

Do I need to comment here too or is the number 4 pertains to the comment on the entry itself?

February 28, 2014 | 11:50 AM - Posted by Gregster

I thought I would chance my luck at this cheeky little comp. :D

February 28, 2014 | 01:02 PM - Posted by YTech

Good luck to all!
My motherboard is too old (11yrs old) to support the card. Sadly, I will have to pass.

Entered. Perfect upgrade for my ageing core 2 quad based PC.

March 11, 2014 | 11:10 PM - Posted by MrSharps (not verified)

Ha! I same chip as me. I swear that's about as old of a chip as you can have and still have a solid system. Good luck.

Would really like to keep up with my friends performance wise and a free boost would be very much appreciated.

To go from integrated graphics to an actual graphics card would make a substantial difference for me, seeing as I won't find the funds to buy one for at least another year, probably 2.

I submitted my rig! Hope it gets considered! this would be a great upgrade for the rig I made my little brother!

My gaming computer had a GTX 460. It died :'(. I've been without one for weeks now and am quite literally going insane with boredom.

looks like my core 2 quad Q8200, HP machine won't due since it has a GT 630 in it...

You guys should give away a PSU with it too, cause if someone PC really needs this then most likely they will need a PSU. lol

March 6, 2014 | 12:35 AM - Posted by biohazard918

for a 750ti they shouldn't need a new psu it only pulls like 60 watts
