Man, that was fast! I like that it's different then the norm, I mean you're offering hardware; both a graphics card and a chance to win a motherboard. And it doesn't matter if you're in first place or not, you're still getting some sweet hardware.

Entered and done! (Liked MSI though, NVIDIA I seem to have liked already.)

You're absolutely right, I'm guessing the entire month of December on HotHardware is going to be a blast! I'm wondering if HH is going to cap things off with a New Years Eve party as well...

There's a big box of goodies at HH :)

But really that was a quick start to a new giveaway, and now I see why. Shaping up for a busy December!

The 580 is nice, but the runner up prizes are not so bad either. Good luck my fellow entrants.

Wahoo I love you guys. Either prize would be great... The vid card would replace my aging 8800 GTX nicely or the Mobo would be a great start to the build I would like to do soon. Glad I already have all the requirements done now just to continue to be active :)

Awesomesauce, now I just need to find the time to do my posts, lol, and to actually have input to give as well.  I'm currently working on a mod for a contest right now, so i have to focus as much time and attention on that as I can, but will definitely be trying to get this done.  i want that GPU and the X79 mobo so bad!!!  If I got either one I'd be drooling all over lol.  Thanks for this awesomesauce of a contest!

Oh man. This graphics card turns me on more than my girlfriend. I am a gamer (who likes to build his own PC's, when I can afford to at least, which is rarely, damn student loans!) and I would LOVE THIS! Thanks for the great contest, I entered your last one and didnt win, but heres to hoping! Already registered on your site & will continue to participate in future contests and make productive forum posts since I am a techy type! THANKS!

Liked all your sponsors on facebook under the e-mail address I registered under

Amazazing!

My current Asrock mobo has defunct SATA controller drivers that permanently blue screen my build if installed, a new motherboard would fix that for me! And some nifty Nvidia 3D Capable hardware wouldn't hurt either!

Thanks to HotHardware, Msi and Nvidia for the Holiday Season Generosity!
