We recently announced an exciting contest, along with our friends at AMD and Asus, in which we planned to give away not one, but two awesome prizes, with some extra weekly prizes thrown in for good measure.   We are giving away an awesome ASUS Matrix 5870 graphics card and three 23” inch LCD monitors as the top prize and the 2nd place prize is an ASUS EAH5850 DirectCU TOP graphics card.

We asked HH readers to
create a story, picture (real photograph, Photoshop or render) or video about how Eyefinity can change your life and post your entry to this forum thread. The response we received, after the announcement of the contest and throughout its duration, was awesome with hundreds of new members joining our community, posting hundreds of creative stories, pictures, videos and renderings. Before we announce the winner, we want to extend a big thank you to everyone that made this contest possible and of course to all of our loyal community members who participated.

Well, we've had a chance to sift through all of the data and we’ve picked a lucky winner.


 
They're all yours, jturnbull65!


Enjoy this bad boy, Clemsnide!

Are you ready for it? Drum roll please!  And the Winner Is...

jturnbull65 !!

and our runner-up is...

Here's Clems original post.

Congrats guys! You've just scored yourself some great new gear!

Now everyone, congratulate your pals and prepare for our next exciting give-away! We've actually got more awesome rigs on tap for you all in the coming weeks / months--the giving just never stops around here! Once we've got the details hammered out, we'll announce the next contest, but we promise it won't be long.

Thanks,
Team HotHardware

Dave, Marco, HotHardware.com and all of our sponsors, excellent choices!! Excellent contest too! This one had us all going!

Jturnbull65 and Clemsnide, congratulations for your excellent posts and your wins.

You guys deserved to win for sure.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Hey All! jturnbull65 has turned down his free copy of BC2 from the random drawing, since he won the grand prize.  The first one of you to e-mail me saying you'd like it, can have it! :)

It wasn't an easy decision for me since I'll probably end up buying it anyway to try out the new Eyefinity set up, but I didn't feel right "hoarding" everything. Funny enough, I just told my friend that I turned it down, he said I was crazy and that I should have given it to him, and so I told him to come here are try to win it :P

I regret to inform you that it's definitely your brain :P

I gave up a free copy of Bad Company 2. I don't know about the AMD branded swag. I'd actually kind of like that because I'm geeky like that but I didn't mention it specifically to Marco because BC2 was clearly the gem of the random drawing.
