I can give a Destiny 2 code for free alongside my mouse. Problem is it requires a gtx 1080 or 1080 ti to activate it and I currently only have a gtx 1070, so someone would have to activate it for the person who ends up with the PC lol I ended up needing a replacement on my 1080 ti so I got two codes, but you can only activate one per GPU.

Let me know if that works for any of you.

Just an idea, cant say if its good or bad.......

If it's not region locked maybe someone with a 1080 could purchase the code ,& the funds could be put towards shipping for the build? I'm not familiar with destiny, if its a popular title, but If it is I'm sure you wouldn't have too much trouble getting rid of it ,as long as it's just a simple was entering a code as long as you have a 1080 or something like that. Maybe you could post it here on TPU ,in the for sale forum, and just mention why you're selling it and maybe you'll get an offer ;)

Just an idea

Yes I am aware we can't sell or discuss digital goods here, that is why I was offering it as a gift. Does that violate the TOS? I don't know, its fine, its just collecting dust because I have no way to sell it haha

I can hear Norton thinking from here :p Personally, if it's a gift it would only be good for those who had the goods to redeem it, and there's probably some language in the key that it's not transferable (sale or gratis), hard to say. So, like Norton says, keep the discussion about it in B/S/T

Put me in for a game key. Not sure what yet, I'll have to look. It can either go with the machines or one of the gift packages.

There's a lot of planning behind the scenes before the first post hits the forum for a giveaway! :twitch:

Send me a PM when you have an idea in mind and we can discuss it ;)

Entering for holiday pc for my nephew(i DO have a nephew;) ) his is an old SB dell optiplex dog$h!t edition that he outgrew years ago, but due to financial constraints it has taken a backseat to more important necessities.

@jboydgolfer
Also in for the 780 (or any gift) also to be used towards the same end.


I wish everyone good luck, & thanks to everyone for making such a great giveaway possible, & especially @Norton for both his donations & his hard work.

Merry Christmas to everyone! I wish you & your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season

@Arjai entering for...Holiday gift #2 and Holiday gift #3

I will be using either one for the TechPowerUp team. I have a couple of potential boxes to place either one of them in. That 780, that would be awesome! And the SSD? Awesome, also!


My favorite Holiday moment was about 3 years ago. My sister and I went over to her former daughter in-laws place, long story. Anyway, her son, who was about 4, is this happy go lucky kid that is always excited and happy. But, watching him open presents, I am at a loss for words. I'm not sure that anyone could have witnessed it with out laughing out loud. I don't know if I have ever been as happy as that kid was, at that moment. I was glad that I was there, one of the best Christmas' ever. BTW, he is grown a bit but, is still as happy as a clam! :)

Not sure I should enter for the PC, since I am a donor, and have gotten so much from this team. However, it sure is a nice one and could use a "working" PC for my farm...I am having a real hard time coming up with time to build up the the three boxes, oops, 4 boxes I have on the shelf.

So, I am in for the PC. I will use it until I get my shizzle on track and then gift it back to the team, probably sometime next summer or fall.

That type of actions keep the good spirit alive and show that some nice people exist and help others when possible. Muchly appreciated. Merry Christmas!

I am in only for the holiday gift 4 as I live in Europe and imports from USA are expensive.

Good luck and all the best to all hereand your people.

Think you're confusing crunching challenge giveaways with this one- check the thread history ;)

We rely on member donations for these giveaways so there's no expectation to see any hardware from TPU reviews here....

In for the PC for my niece - she needs her own PC so she's not using her uncle's. My younger brother has custody of her, him and his wife are saving for in vitro (since due to complications on their first child the baby died and his wife almost died, she has severe scaring from surgery and can't get pregnant on her own anymore) and sometimes the little luxuries aren't always in the budget. Also, when she graduates next year she'll need some kind of computer of her own.

Also, in for Gift #1 - can use to cobble together a computer for the niece
and Gift #3 - this I could put in my HTPC for games

As for a memorable Christmas story.....
I was 6 years old and my older brother was 9. He was very sneaky and crafty for a young kid and hell, he still is today as far as I know (though I haven't spoke with him in over a year and he had a lot of issues with his daughter and how he treated her, hence our younger brother stepping in and getting custody of our niece). My older brother woke me up very early in the morning one day and he said he had something to show me. I was lead out into the garage and he unlocked the trunk of the car and inside it was packed with toy/games/clothes for him, me and our little brother who was maybe 1 at the time. He wanted me to know, and I'm not really sure why (even to this day, though I can speculate) that Santa wasn't real and it was just mom and dad. So at the age of about 6, I learned that Santa wasn't real and it was just mom and dad.

I figure my older brother wanted to prove, even at age 9, that he was smarter than mom and dad and wanted to brag. He's always been borderline narcissistic and maybe even borderline sociopathic as far back as I can remember.
