    :nerd: It seems Hilbert got his hands on countless fancy cards :nerd:

    I was just wondering if there were giveaways from time to time :p



    I'm just concerned about Hilbert well-being and working environment, when i see the amount of cards used in benchmarks it seems there isn't much room left to breath, walk around,... doing some exercices...

    Yes every Christmas a contest for hardware at Guru3d , I'm a member of the Asus Rog forums , they have recently set up a User Review of Asus hardware , they pick random asus forum members to review Asus hardware i , just recently I received an Asus GTX 950 unplugged graphic card for a user review. . If my review goes well I may receive more asus newly released products I'm not the smartest cookie in the box, hope it goes well. I hope the Asus GTX 950 Unplugged is a better card than my Asus GTX 660 3MB. We get to keep the hardware. Good for Asus Thanks

    I think that it's fairly common for reviewed hardware to be returned to the manufacturer after the review is finished.

    "selected users from the ROG community that will be sent products to test ( you'll get to keep the products). This is my project and the first team to support me on my project is the graphics card" Quote Asus Administrator Asus Forums
    These are user Reviews not some PC mag review or internet hardware review or paid reviewers reviews but Asus Rog Fourm Members Reviews. Good For Asus to support its Forum members Asus gave me an Asus 950GTX Unplugged to Review and keep The Guru3D Christmas give a ways are awesome!!

    I was one of the happy winners from last Christmas, got 2x8GB 3200MHz RAM from Gskill and Hilbert, thanks again :D

    By the way, anybody up for a big user-based giveaways? If anybody got their stuff lying around and it's fairly up to date.

    I have two old GPUs that may or may not work (x1900 GT and 3850), but I'm pretty sure no one would want them by now. And like a collection of 250/500gb hard drives

    Technically would have got 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM, maybe an old passive 5770 (still enough to run an office / server rig as a dedicated card), some DDR2, and I believe somewhere around here there's even DDR3 to some extent.
