Win an ATI 5770!

Wheres Ruby...

Wheres Ruby At? Overclock3D Treasure Hunt!
 
With all the hype surrounding the ATI 5000 series cards and Father Christmas being overwhelmed with requests for them, Overclock3D has teamed up with ATI to give all the good boys and girls a chance of winning a 5770 in time for Christmas!
 
The last treasure hunt wasn't very rewarding, all that hunting to find a pirate. But this time fear not as ATI's Mascot Ruby has been hidden in 3 different website articles (not forums or this article). She will be holding a number on a card, find images 1, 2, and 3 and you are in with a shot of getting some DX11 goodness for the festive season!
 
COMPETITION CLOSED
 
If you were to have found the images at this article then this is the email you would need to send
 
NAME: Ruby
ADDRESS: In My Dreams
FORUM USERNAME: hot_chick_1
IMAGE 1: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/gpu_displays/asus_radeon_hd_5850_1gb_gddr5_graphics_card/1

IMAGE 3: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/gpu_displays/asus_radeon_hd_5850_1gb_gddr5_graphics_card/1
 
If nobody finds them all then we will drop you some subtle hints to help get those detective juices flowing!

New design HD 5770 has the same price

Cheaper than the "old" version



Meet the new HD 5770

AMD cuts costs



Or that might be Fudo's team swinging and missing, again.

Was curious as to how fast would those more-profitable cards have entered the market.

Update: looking at Asus' product page, the 5770 v2 has the same cooler as the MSI mentioned by Fudo co., so no miss?Quote

Good luck to every one though, wish i had gotten a job and worked those 20 hours and got a guaranteed gfx card instead of just a chance =(.

Still looking, dont get teh clues and cant see how a change in search method works so fast.

Are all the images the same size as in the demo.

This is really frustrating aaarrgghQuote

Came across this due to a notification dropping into my inbox - had forgotten I had signed up - duly very embarrassed. On the plus side have seen some new kit I definitely now 'need'. . Took 3hrs but found all three - do we send in the url of the images or the pages they are in?

Oh well. I've been at this for hours now, and have yet to find a single one.

So much for a first post!! My head is throbbing from staring at this screen so intently, and my hand just can't take it anymore. I've clicked more in the last few hours than I have in days!

Congrats to those who were fortunate enough to find them, I just can't do it. I think I'd rather just buy one if I really want it.

What really gets me is that everyone says that number 1 is so easy to find. It makes me think that I'm not doing something right here because I've been through a ridiculous amount of articles, reviews, and news pages, and have yet to see a single one. Oh well.Quote

@jdookie I feel for you mate, I am still searching but have to let you look here a clue for number 1. ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 If you have found the rest then well done you are a bettre man than me. I will keep searching but alcohol and the weekend will be too much of a temptation for me. I have looked all week and still not got them all.

Worst thiing is some people join up and find them all straight away - makes me wonderQuote

Oh great! Now you have me starting to look all over again, lol. Thanks for the tip. You know, I thought I looked at that review already and skipped over it probably a dozen times. I looked at EVERY OTHER REVIEW ON THAT PAGE!! LMAO. Wow.

Just added to my frustration by checking where I stopped looking. I had checked EVERY single review upto and including page 10 of 21 reviews number 3 was on the next page.

What I am struggling to see is how people found them so quick ?

Very clever search techniques indeed.Quote

06-12-2009, 10:16:22

tinytomlogan
1. = http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/gpu_displays/ati_radeon_hd_5870_1gb_gddr5_preview/2

2. Its nestled next to the psu = http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/power_supply/xfx_black_edition_850w_atx_psu/2

3 Was difficult if you just searched but very easy if you thought about it. Its at the end of my very first review http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.php?/cases_cooling/lian_li_pc343_atx_case/5

Ill announce the winner laterQuote

I Could not find number 3 even after looking at what I thought was your first review noticed you posted a lot of threads about reviews others had done.

also spent alot of time looking at "Virgin" and where you were from or reviews with locations in them.Quote

I passed number 2 plenty of times (sounds wrong) just did not see it, only when finally working the clue out did I look closer.

My train of thought " is a bit alice in wonderland" gave me eureka moments.

Alice in Wonderland = All in Wonder so searched for them, no luck

a bit = Abit so searched for them no luck.

caused quite a stir = lots of responses so searched the forum looking for a lot of replies the PSU had 53 I think so looked at it again and found number 2.

Good luck to all who found it. you are in limited company I think so will be interesting to see your chances.Quote

I should say well done to everyone else who got the correct entries, it was pretty hard this time around (especially that sneaky number 2 - no pun intended!).

Thanks, makes a very nice early Christmas present!

You put me in a tricky situation though, as you can see I already have a GTX280, which is much faster, though I think a 5770 CF setup sounds very tempting as I've never had a chance to try CF yet. It might come down to power consumption too, as the PC is on a lot of the time.

Nethertheless, it's going in to try out and get some nice benchmarks and impressions. I've got plenty of games to test it with and sure can't resist the temptation to play with some new tech Quote
