Beat them if you dare!
Gigabyte GTX 260 Super OverClock editionGigabyte, a leading motherboard and graphics card manufacturer, have started a new competition, challenging users to beat them if they dare in a global graphics card overclocking competition. The event coincides with the recent announcement of Gigabyte's latest family of graphics cards, the Super Overclock Series. Contestants from any part of the world are invited to compete against the top scores set by Gigabyte's very own, in-house overclocking team to win cash and prizes.
The champion of each round will receive $1500 cash. Second prize is a new Gigabyte GTX295 graphics card, currently the high end, dual GPU card from Nvidia. The third place winner in each round will receive a Gigabyte Ultra Durable VGA GTX285 graphics card, currently the fastest single GPU card from Nvidia.
As an added bonus, if any contestant that beats the benchmark score that has been set by the Gigabyte team will double his or her prize, meaning a potential $9000 USD and 12 graphics cards are up for grabs. What are you waiting for?
The first round of benchmarking is using a GTX 260, second round using a GTX 275 and the final round using two GTX 275s in SLI. You can use any brand of card, but must achieve the highest 3d Mark Vantage score and the highest Resident Evil 5 score.

I'm selling my Brenthaven Eclipse MacBook case. For those of you who aren't familiar with the case, full details may be viewed here.

As I don't want TinyTom on my case I have taken the requisite money shots and hope that my snaps are good enough so you can get a good idea of what the case looks like, inside and out. I should point out that I'm only selling because I invested in a luggage set for work which included a MacBook case in the package.... so the Brenthaven is now surplus to my needs.

Interior shot - the blue material is like suede to touch, is very soft and silky... will caress your MacBook very nicely indeed.... I should also point out that slipped between the blue interior and black exterior material are thin plastic armour strips.


Note rear pocket for storing documents

I'm asking £17 including Royal Mail recorded delivery - will ship to UK addresses only and prefer payment via bank Xfer.

Thanks for looking all.
