HH and MSI Lazy Days Of Summer Sweepstakes!

To pay tribute to the hot, lazy days of summer, we're giving away some equally HOT new hardware in conjunction with our friends at MSI! This time around, you could win a pair of MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GB GeForce GTX 460 cards for some SLI action and an awesome MSI Big Bang-XPower motherboard. In addition, for the duration of the contest, we'll also be giving away 10 copies of the DX11 and PhysX-enabled game Metro 2033!

As we've done with previous sweepstakes, we’ll be giving this prize package away to a randomly selected contributor to our on-line forum and discussion systems, but like many previous contests, there are other ways to enter (see below)...


Grand Prize: (2) MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GB cards, (1) MSI Big Bang-XPower motherboard



Runners Up: (10) Copies of Metro 2033

To be entered into the sweepstakes, you’ve got to be a registered, active member of our forum and a resident of the United States or Canada. If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and for free), right here.

From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussions here in the news and in the forum. We will be randomly selecting winners based on community involvement and quality of contribution. You can also increase your chances of winning by signing up for our HotHardware News Alerts or becoming a fan of HotHardware via our respective DiggFacebook and / or Twitter pages. And we’d urge you to become a fan of MSI’s Facebook page as well! The contest will run through Monday September 13, 2010 at which point we’ll announce the grand prize winner.

This is a great chance for to you to win some powerful hardware. Now go make some new friends in the forum and get in the running! Good Luck!

Yes, I have to agree with Marius Malek. between College and Marrage I don't have a lot of time for the forums any more, but it does look like somebody will get some nice bootie.

Good luck everyone.

Who could not know about SWTOR "i vote the new star wars game as the game of choice.". I have been on there forum since November 2 years ago now waiting on this one. Of course MMO's are my thing game wise so there may be something to that as well.

This would be a sweet setup for sure that Motherboard in itself is sick, and that is not to even mention a SLI 460GTX setup to go along with it either. This is a great contest any way you look at it with some top gear being given away.

I am gonna try on this one of course I am heading for Bentonville, Arkansas Wednesday to start a nation wide roll out for 2 straight months. So it may be difficult we will just have to see how it all rolls together.

Either way good luck to everyone!

I've actually been beta testing this game and getting some insider info for a while now. And you guys are going to have to take my word for it when I say it's unlike an MMO that I've played before. 

I look forward to playing it with you all sometime next year, it's a game you WANT to be addicted to! 

And one of the better parts of the game is that it gets progressively harder and more epic as you journey through your character's storyline.

The architecture examination hints that the GeForce GTX 460 1,024MB will perform similarly to a GTX 465, losing a bit of geometry performance but clawing it back in shading and texturing. Of course, any performance predictions are useless without a knowledge of clock-speeds, so let's head on over to a handy table

Well it wont be long now till someone scores on the MSI Big Bang and some Msi graphics . The more I look at that Big Bang thats a lot of real estate for some video power and a great looking board and whoever wins it I would like to see how it turns out in a the winners personal reveiw. So good luck to everyone!

HH,Marco,Dave and their sponsers are the best, the site, forums and the members are the best so to any newcomers its a Win! Win! to be here!!Yes

Yeah, I have to agree, they seem to take good care of us here,...always.

The Mainboard and SLI setup are really cool. There is a tremendous overclocking potential with this gear, but even at stock speeds, this will be a smokin' fast way to go. The reviews on all of this gear are stellar.

Good luck to you too, amdcrankitup.

No, because i won't be posting like crazy :P. Its time to relax and enjoy the rest of the summer. Schools almost here and that means no more sleeping late or staying up all night :(.
