The good folks at AMD have given me some neat hardware to give away, but I'm going to make you work for the chance of winning some loot! You're going to have to answer a question or two.
I've got two categories of prizes to give away. I've got four AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz processors (no heatsinks) and a couple of boxed graphics cards (a Radeon HD 6790 and a Radeon HD 5670) to give away. So, I've got two questions, one for those who want a chance to win a CPU (there will be four winners) and another for those who want a chance to win the graphics cards (first prize will be the Radeon HD 6790, second prize the Radeon HD 5670).
Here are the questions:
For a chance to win an AMD CPU, tell me what applications consume the most processor power on your PC, and how a faster processor would make a difference to you.
For a chance to win an AMD graphics card, tell me what is your favorite gaming platform, and why.
Here are the basic rules. Read them carefully to avoid having your entry disqualified (and to make my life easier!).
Register as a ZDNET user. If you're already registered, you can skip this step. If you're not a ZDNet member, click the Join link at the top of this page and follow the instructions.
Log in and leave a comment below. In 150 words or less, answer one or both of the above questions. (And don't go over that 150-word limit or your entry will be disqualified!)
Leave only one comment per question. You may enter this specific giveaway only twice (once for a chance to win one of the CPUs, and once for a chance to win a graphics card). If you enter more than one comment per question, you will be automatically disqualified.
The winners will be selected by a panel of judges.
