I will be giving away the card in the title as a TPU forums members appreciation giveaway. IMO this is the best tech forums around and it's the active members here that make it so. I have seen many many people helped by the members here.

The card has been used for about one year and runs cool and quiet with no coil whine.

Entrants must have a USA address due to shipping and import complications. I will cover the shipping.

Must have been a member since yesterday (1/24) or before and have at least 10 posts.

Entries will be closed at 12:00 PM EST on 2/1 and I will use random.org to select the winner. I will post the winner here and notify by PM. If the winner doesn't PM me with a USA address to mail it to within 4 days from posting the winner then I will draw another winner.

Just post that you are entering to be entered in the drawing.

As long as I have a USA address then it's fine but everyone that's considering having it re-shipped to you that I won't be able to involve myself in any disputes if the person I ship it to decides to not ship it to you or sends it in some way that it gets handled badly and damaged. I also want to avoid any communication with whatever person or service you use. I will put the address on the box and mail it but that is all that I want to be involved with.
