Win New Graphics Cards For Life From Nvidia

One of the biggest issues with PC gaming is that if you want the best experience, you have to constantly keep upgrading your hardware. After two or three years, that mid-range video card you bought is going to start showing its age. Wouldn’t it be great if you just bought one top-of-the-line card, and it would be upgraded every two years for you? Well you just might.

No, there hasn’t been a revolution in computer hardware that will rebuild itself every so often. Rather, Nvidia is running a contest that could get you a brand new graphics card every two years for the rest of your life (or 20 years, whichever is shorter). That’s right, in fifteen years, when you need something new to run Half-Life 3, you’ll know that a new GPU will be on its way to your door before you need it.

So what do you need to do? You need to go out and buy a GeForce GTX 570 or GTX 560 Ti, and you’ll be entered to win. Make sure that you purchase it from NCIX, Newegg, TigerDirect, or Maingear, as they are the only ones that are supporting the contest. For each card you purchase between now and April 16, you’ll get a single entry. Should you win, you’ll receive one new GeForce GTX (or equivilant) card every two years, valued at $499. You’ll also receive a Maingear SLI 3D gaming PC valued at $10,000, and $1,000 in cash. Not too shabby at all. Ten first-prize winners will get $1,000 cash.

With the new 600 cards coming, you have to admit that this is a great way to clear out old stock. These cards are still excellent, and the idea of having new GPUs every two years for the next twenty sounds pretty tempting.
