What is better than a custom gaming PC? A gaming PC where all proceeds from the sale will go towards a charity of course! Tiger Direct, Corsiar, and EVGA have all teamed up to assemble a custom gaming PC that is currently being auctioned off on ebay to help raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The charity raises money to support research towards a cure for MS which is a debilitating disorder that affects the central nervous system. In other words, it is for a really good cause.

The gaming PC in question is pretty impressive. A white Corsair Graphite 600T makes the computer shine. On the inside, the gaming PC features an ASUS P8Z68-V Pro motherboard, Intel Core i5-2500K, and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM. In addition, EVGA has thrown in a GTX 680 SC graphics card (EVGA 02G-P4-2682-KR for that that get a chuckle out of their product names). Other hardware includes a Corsair Force GT SSD and Corsair AX 750W modular power supply (PSU). Tiger Direct also included a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

Currently the ebay auction has received 32 bids and is sitting at $2,850 USD. Please share the auction information and help spread awareness about MS if you find it relevant and useful. It’s always nice to see charity and shiny computer hardware come together, and I hope that it helps MS research!
