200 bucks is cheap price for thousands of likes, so MSI can show off how "popular" they are.

Can you really complain when the price is free and all you have to do is like the page?

what? You're complaining about the prizes in a giveaway? I mean if it was a competition of some sort I could understand but for this you don't have to do any effort. Even if you wind up not using the prizes you can always sell them (free money).

One of the things that I enjoy about being on a site like TechPowerUp.com is seeing the different cultural and economic viewpoints. This giveaway has shown how people react on both accounts. I (my viewpoint) think it is in very poor taste to give, as a prize, anything but your best, and some of the comments echo that. These prizes represent the company, and MSI should have asked themselves what this says about them. Others don't care that MSI, "one of the world's largest motherboard and video card manufacturers. In addition, MSI also manufactures a wide range of products including notebooks, gaming laptops, All-in-One PCs, servers/workstations, industrial PCs, household appliances, car infotainment products, barebone systems and communication devices among other things" - with "Revenue TW$74.61 billion / $2.54 billion (2011)" (from wikipedia)- would give away a discontinued, (Newegg.com) previous generation product. This is not to bash MSI's products. Their use of "Military Class" components has contributed greatly to the quality and longevity of all motherboards today. I have a MSI N460GTX Twin Frozr II SOC that I absolutely love.
IMHO, bad form MSI, bad form.

Finnaly someone who didnt just complain but gave reasoning behind it, ( which i 100% agree with by the way).

But nice to see more people doing give away's and getting popularity on social media, having a chance to win for clicking 1 keyboard key and 1 mouse click, definitely cant complain on my end.

Thanks TPU and MSI

Id be very happy to win the motherboard. Even just to win one of those little watches is better than nothing.
