    Presenting the winners of the BIOSTAR HiFi Contest. In April, we ran a Facebook giveaway in collaboration with BIOSTAR, giving away three A85W-HiFi socket FM2 motherboards to participants from the US, with a catchphrase that best describes the awesome Puro HiFi integrated audio solution you with with these motherboards. Without further ado, the winners:
    • Andrew from Minneapolis, MN
    • Jesse from Coeur d'Alene, ID
    • Daniel from Folsom, CA
    Huge congrats to you guys! Have fun with your new A85W-HiFi! TechPowerUp will return with more interesting contests.

    Id say your jealousy is misplaced, Biostar are hardly the 'Rolls Royce' of motherboard manufacturers. Most reviews give it a rather 'middle of the road' rating given its specs.

    For a few dollars or pounds more you can have a decent budget MSI board that has more support for SLi and Xfire and doesnt gimp the bottom 16x PCI-E lane to 4x via hardware.

    though a free board is still a free board. It will provide a good base for a budget build but thats about it.
