Ten years ago in May on the 24th of 1999 the domain Guru3D.com was registered, and we mark that day, the day that Guru3D.com reached a decade. Serving you fine readers enthusiast gaming related hardware content.
With this special occasion we have a lot of things lined up, among them a history of Guru3D.com article, a hardware history article where we'll look back at graphics cards back in the late 90'ies. We'll also do something really special on the green environmental side of things and sure .. we gathered prizes for you guys.
Initially we wanted to have one big contest, however we got so many stuff top give away that this week we'll launch three contests with many thousands of EURO's in prices. Among these prizes, many graphics cards, enthusiast soundcards, high-end power supplies.
We even had NVIDIA CEO Jen-Sun Huang sign an engineering sample GeForce GTX 285 which we'll give away, we have a customized Smooth Creations Far Cry 2 / Guru3D themed chassis to give away, or how about some 6GB 2000 MHz OCZ Blade memory ? Or perhaps you like a Zalman GS1000SE chassis. No ? Well BFG is also sponsoring a GeForce GTX 285 OC2 edition and their new 1200 Watt PSU.
We'll also give away Radeon HD 4890 graphics cards that are still in development, HIS is going crazy for you guys. These are just a couple of the prizes we'll give away in contests .. and you know what ? At the end of the week we'll give away a complete AMD/ATI Dragon PC away as well .. that's right .. Phenom II 955 BE, MSI 790FX motherboard, we pop a Radeon HD 4890 in there, some nice memory, DVD-RW ... really .. a top notch system.
