    Hello all. It's time for a rather substantial giveaway. There's a catch though, you won't see everything that's being given away on this post. As the days go by I'll be dropping in and adding to the pile of awesome.

    First up, we've got a title from excellent manofthem(http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/member.php?u=91647). Portal 2 anyone?

    Remember to come back often and watch for the rest of the prizes! This one will be substantial!

    The Requirements:
    Join date of June 2012 or earlier.
    No requirement on post number of thanks.
    Required to have a Steam account, or other account, based upon the game's requirements.
    Post, and answer the question: "What keeps you coming back to TPU."
    Completely fill out your system specifications.


    The Winners:
    Will be chosen based upon random choice and unique responses. As the list of prizes cannot be stated, the mixture of the winners will be about even.
    Have 24 hours once PM'd at the end of the competition to respond.
    Any winner that has not responded will have their prize redrawn for.
    Prize selections will be determined upon drawing.

    Entry:
    One entry per user. Remember to check back though, there seem to be some storm clouds...
    Make sure you answer the question, with no regards as to language (as long as it's recognizable by google translate).
    Make sure those system specifications are there. Be it Apple, nettop, or a huge rig it's always nice for those offering help to know what they're dealing with.
    Contest ends at 12:01 PM (EST North America) on Saturday the first of September.

    The Fine Print:
    Not affiliated with any commercial or social entities.
    Must meet age requirements as necessary for the prizes.

    Aleksander, Irony, TheHunter and 19 others say thanks.

    Q. "What keeps you coming back to TPU."
    A. 1) Great, friendly, helpful community. I'm as happy to give advice as to receive it, 2) Great reviews by all the reviewers, 3) A chance to see interesting product launches... and also to belittle the "nonsense" products and PR BS that sometimes we see C+P here, 4) Clean quick fast site

    I was reading on another site the other day, the discussion was about some gpu review, can't remember what exactly, but someone there was saying to "go read the reviews at TPU!" The gist of his comment was that TPU puts more thorough work into their reviews than all other places, and i agree with that. I mean, we have W1zz reviewing everything in depth, putting 2560x and eyefinity resolution into the mix with all the top games= Quality! And That's not limited to gpus, our motherboard and memory reviews are spot on :)toast: to cadaveca), keyboards, headphones, psus... and the list continues to be awesome.

    The friendly and helpful spirit is really the deciding factor in actually participating in this great forum. Other places do not have that friendly spirit; many others are condescending and/arrogant, or just downright ridiculous. Many reasons to why TPU is such a great place.

    But, the "unlocking of shaders of a 6950" is what originally brought me here before ever even buying the card, and it's all been great since then!

    Because TPU has a great variety of people who are willing to help newcomers or veterans alike with their problems and it is the best place for the latest technology news and discussions. Also it has one of the most generous communities I have ever seen in regards to giveaways.

    Why do I keep coming back? Hell, since joining, I have never left!!!!!

    This is by far the most awesome community on the interweb, hands down.

    People are awesome, reviews are second to none, information is....well informative, and I have met some real friends that I have never met!!! :p

    "Met some real friends that I have never met." :laugh: Not sure that makes any sense, but damn, it is true. Today alone, I BS'd with a couple of, what I consider, friends, and neither of them I have met in person.

    This community has been like living in the ultimate neighborhood!!

    Soooooooooo much truth in them lyrics!!!!

    That is TechPowerUp!!!!!!!!

    Awww shit. Not this kind of question again. My fingers will have an accelerated rate of arthritis due to answering that!

    A few questions:

    -Whoever enters this contest...will we have the chance to cancel our submissions if the prize revealed doesn't interest us?

    -Will you be awarding the prizes based on how many people entered in the beginning for the first prize, then later for the second prize, etc. ?

    TPU is my go-to-place for the latest in tech news, aided by the fact that the format of the website is very succinct and easy-to-read. Also, reviews from knowledgeable individuals and help from knowledgeable forum members has me coming back for those not-so-easy choices and problems that can't be solved with a simple Google search.

    whenever i needed tech related help, i always relied on the techpowerup community, they would give me the best advice and save my money too
    need to gift a friend tech thing or need to build his rig : techpowerup would always help out
    computer goes wrong, dont know whats the problem, tried everything : techpowerup has more ways you can try and solve the issue
    like a game, but it has no people online, post it on techpowerup : hundred people will come online in a day
    need to buy sell or giveaway some things or some stuff : techpower community would support you.
    I can go on and on, but to brief it out i would say the "without techpowerup i wouldnt have the knowledge or things i have today, thanks techpowerup :D".
