Hardware Giveaway: 5,000 Comments Challenge!

Advertisement

Update (27/02): we received 9000 comments – we hit the 5,000 mark! And the winners are: 1) graphic card goes to Joshua Lawson (#5533) from Sewell, NJ; 2) the mouse goes to Gareth (#5651) from Cape Town, South Africa; 3) the headphones go to Catalin (#8598) from Bucharest, Romania. Congratulations! All winners have already been contacted.

If you didn’t win, it may make sense for you to subscribe to our RSS-feed1, more giveaways are coming! Thank you for participation!

Why should you get gifts only on Christmas and your birthday? We at Smashing Magazine love to give away things all year long. This time, you have a chance to get some really cool hardware.

Taking part in this giveaway is easy… well, maybe not that easy. We’re keen on seeing a lot of comments and want to see at least 5,000 comments in this post, so spread the word and help us get to 5,000 or more comments and then win one of the smashing prizes below.

The 5,000 comment challenge is important, folks. If we don’t reach that goal, then the prizes get torched. Okay, they don’t get torched, but the giveaway only kicks in after 5000 comments. It is not a random, unrealistic figure either; we got 3,800 comments in our recent books giveaway2.

Prizes You Can Win

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 X23, with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory 2 x 256-bit memory interface, 2.4 teraFLOPS of GPU power and 1600 stream processing units.

Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 X24

Sennheiser PXC 3505, a high-end travel headphone, with active noise compensation and a set for active attenuation of ambient noise.

How Do I Participate?

To participate, just leave a comment and tell us:

  • Where in the world are you currently located (country and city), and
  • How is the weather outside? Rainy? Sunny? Foggy?

The giveaway lasts until Friday, February 27th. The three winners will be selected randomly. Good luck, folks, and please spread the word!
