You don't have to stick it in your system, I'd hold onto it simply for having such a famous card

Kinda crappy that these 1 time posters have a shot ;p
I think the real concern is are there any posters that have re-registered to give themselves another shot. I'll get bored later on and search every poster to make sure it's fair

Fair point! I'm not claiming no-one else should be going for one, it does look a kickass card, the engineering sample I've got at the moment is quite dull looking

When I talked to the BFG Tech folks last year, this is exactly what they said they were going to do with their leftover stock of 5800U cards. I saw them - a giant box full of these suckers. I wish I could have taken one right there. I wouldn't necessarily have used it, but it would still be fun to own.

Had to pay my car insurance which went up a rediculous percentage thanks to my sis's accident earlier this year, so I had to sell my 5900NU to pay it My comp is way slow in games at this point after taking that out it sucks... Probably for the better anyways... Finals are in a week, so maybe if Im lucky ill win and I can game again after finals :-D

Id have it because the day i sold my 5800 Ultra on ebay was a sad day indeed and i regreted it and defended it (the NV30) often in here. I couldnt belive i saw one being given away i thought it said 6800 at first... wonder if BFG are selling any of these last stocks of the nv30 off

I want one simply because it's faster than my beloved 9700Pro.

I agree with whoever said the 1st time posters should not be allowed to take part in the drawing. No fair! Only "real" members should be allowed to enter.

With ALL their leftover stock?

You mean, more than 1 website is going to be getting this competition?

Or, nVNews will be giving away more than 1 card!?

Please clarify!!
