Always nice to see free stuff, but the XFX cooler is not that good.

awesom. This is why i'm a ati fanboy (I know, amd, and I was a amd fanboy from the day the day I bought my 586 100, but it's graphics and I've been a ati fanboy since the all-in-wonder 128 came out, fuckin tv on a pc! where was I going with this, oh yea) this is why I'm a ati fanboy, pure love to the community, they are a large corporation, all they want is profit, but they try to make their profits by creating fanboys. Shit I shouldn't try to explain stuff when I"m so drunk I can barely work a keyboard. Yay AMD. I'm gona read this in the morning and laugh my hungover ass off. JOSHTEKK.COM ROCKS!!

Umm, the power cables aren't connected to the gpu. I demand a picture change!

That is because the power cables don't come with the card :P

That photo is actually of a member's rig. It's a 290X modified with a Kraken G10 and water cooler. He took the picture before connecting the power :)

This is the 280 that is being given away in this contest.

Can't tell if I qualify as I am unable to see my total amount of post in my profile. There are also some threads/post that still require MOD approval, but not sure how to check them as they don't show up in my profile info. :(

Then I am sure there was a forum refresh at one point. Not sure if some of those old post are being counted or if they were removed, etc.

Still a great gift, none the less! :D

EDIT: Found the # of post. Will show in the title of your Post on the right side. Good luck everyone!
