Don't forget to upgrade your own system first!...
What I have now is already massive overkill because for the last year and a half all I play is games form the 1990s to mid 2000s.

I will be doing the drawing this Friday 3/31. I apologize for the wait but Amazon took forever to get it to me. Normally they are fast with the shipping since I have Prime. I will post the winner here and send a PM to the winner. Winner will have 3 days to respond with an address for shipping to my email or I will do another drawing.

Great thread. Do international shipping next time:)

I'm fine with that but I don't understand what I'm getting into with that. The shipping cost is of no concern.

I have cancelled the RTX 4090 give-away. That would be the biggest blunder of my give-aways because very few have a rig that could handle that or even a 4K monitor and it's a random drawing as always so I can't pick and choose who wins. Instead I'm looking at give-aways for the 4060 Ti when they drop in May. That would be the best opportunity to help gamers upgrade I think. According to the Steam Hardware Survey 60% are still on 1080p and less that 3% are on 4K.

This give-away has gone to a new level of tiresome headache for me. It's a pain in the ass to even bother with a give-away to begin with so in the future I will skip random.org and just pick who I want to get it. In this case I choose @stinger608 to get the MSI RTX 4080 Gaming Trio.

PM an address to send it to you and I willl do so on Tuesday.

Sorry to hear the inevitable scrum erupted sorta off-site and probably elsewhere. Decent gesture on your part.

Congratulations stinger608. :lovetpu::clap:

Edit: Also congratulations to jormungand! who I seemingly forgot.

Makes sense, it's your money after all.

I always liked the community contests on OCC ( years ago) where you have to be a member for x days already and have x posts to enter. Weeds out the spammers and directly rewards members who contribute to the site. Got a nice case that way.

It arrived!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess I had no frigging idea it would be brand new still in the wrapper!!!!!!

Wow, I don't know what to say........................ Love you for this? Sorry, not trying to sound gay. :laugh: But, damn man!!!!! That's a $1200 card that you just gave away.

I will never ever forget this man. If you need anything in the future, and I have it, it's yours brother!!!!!!

Anyhow, thank you so very very much man.

I'm currently running a 1080 hybrid and going to put that in my grandson's system for him. He's currently running one of my old GTX 970's, so should be a big jump for him.

I'm running a Seasonic gold 850 watt power supply and figure that should be enough to run the 4080......

You might want to get a dedicated dual 8 to 16 pin 12VHPWR cable but otherwise it will handle it no problem.

The card actually comes with a 3x8 pin PCIe to 20 pin adapter. That should do okay?
