Fourteen Video Card Giveaway

Let’s try this again with the contest here. We had no entries for the last one, and we think that’s because the time limit was too short at one week, so we’re starting it over and running it longer for all of the cards we have to give away.

Starting today, Friday December 17th, you can get in for a chance to win one of fourteen Sparkle Nvidia GT240 Video Cards. We’ve got a few different versions for you to win like Low-Profile, Overclocked and Standard Editions. Since it’s so close to the holidays we’re going to run this contest through the new year and for a little over 1 month. The contest will end on January 31st 2011. So you have time to get in on it, but don’t wait too long though. Continue reading to learn how to win a card for yourself and what you’ll need to do.

The cards are Nvidia based, an assortment of GT 240 cards:

Sparkle GT240 Low Profile 1024mb DDR3 with DVI / CRT and HDMI

Sparkle GT 240 1024mb DDR3 DVI / CRT / HDMI

Sparkle GT 240 OC 1024mb DDR5 DVI / CRT / HDMI

Sparkle GT 240 512MB DDR5 DVI / VGA / HDMI

14give

Feel free to go through ANY of the following actions to win”:

Option 1 – Write a review about technogog.com

Remember you can publish it wherever you want on internet, such as your blog, forum, Epinions etc.

If you want to publish it on various place on internet in order to have better chance to win the prize, you need to write different text to join the competition again.

You do all of these things as well, and have an even better chance of winning.

The idea of the contest is to get the word out about technogog, and as a thank you for doing that you’ll get a video card that has an MSRP of about $120.00.

==

How we’ll pick the winner:

We will evaluate the following things:

(1)content of your review/comparison

  • Savannah

    the retail value of the card is *not* $120. It can be purchased for as little as $40 in many retail stores.

    • http://twitter.com/ET3D ET3D

      GeForce 240 cards start from around $80 where I checked (which is high profile stores). I imagine that it’s possible to get them for less, but I’d be happy for some references to a $40 one. Remember also that MSRP doesn’t equal the price in stores, and certainly not the lowest price you can find.

      Some of these cards are marked as “deactivated” on Newegg, so I can’t really tell how much they’re supposed to be worth, but I’d say that $80-$100 is a reasonable street value for these cards, so MSRP $120 may be correct at least for the most expensive of these.

    hi, received video card.

    thanks.

  • http://twitter.com/ana3mic ?????? ?????????

    I received my card today, and I’m in Eastern Europe so guys be patient and if the mail services in your country are any good you will get yours. Mine is a 1024mb DDR3, contains a low-profile brackets for a low height HTPC case and has a full size HDMI connection (unlike my ASUS GTX460 :D). It’s going to be used as Folding and PhysX card for now and if I have the time I’ll do some benchmarks to see if there are improvements with games using PhysX. After all thank you Test Freaks and especially Kristofer Brozio for organizing this nice contest and for sending me one :p

  • slugbug55

    Received my GT240 low profile card in the mail today. Thanks again for the giveaway.
