Bonus Prizes!

In addition to the graphics cards above, we will be giving out 32 Tech ARP t-shirts! The winner of each contest period will get one, and three other forum members will be randomly selected to win a t-shirt each! Check it out!


I Want To Participate!

All you need to do is just participate in the Tech ARP Forums from October 4 until December 28, 2008! Join us in our discussions for the next 12 weeks and you could win one or more of these graphics cards!

Every day of the contest, we will randomly select 20 forum members who have posted at least once OR referred someone who registers in the forums that very day. A minimum of two slots per day will be allocated to those who have referred a new forum member. You can be selected multiple times, as many times as the days that you have posted in the forums or referred someone to the Tech ARP forums. This gives you a greater chance of winning the prize.

There will be 8 contest periods. At the end of the first contest period, we will have a list of 160 forum nicks. There will be some repetitions of course, depending on how many were selected multiple times. One of those 160 forum nicks will be randomly selected as the winner for the first prize, an NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GT/GS graphics card. Three other forum members will win a Tech ARP t-shirt each.

At the end of the second contest period, we will have a list of 300 forum nicks (counted from October 4 onwards). One of those 300 forum nicks will be randomly selected as the winner for the second prize, the NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GT graphics card. Again, three other forum members will win a Tech ARP t-shirt each.

Similarly, at the end of subsequent contest periods, we will obtain fresh lists from the start of this contest until the end of each contest period. One forum nick of each fresh list will be randomly selected to win the remaining prizes, with three other forum members winning one Tech ARP t-shirt each.

In total, there will be 32 individual prizes, and if you are active (and lucky) enough, you can win more than one prize!

You will need to be a registered member of the Tech ARP Forums so if you have not registered earlier, you will need to register before you can post. Don't worry - registration is FREE and the process is very simple!

Note : Please tell your friends to identify you as their Referral during the registration process so you will get credit for it.


Help Us Help You!

Tech ARP will be sponsoring many of these prizes and delivery of all prizes at substantial cost to the team. If you would like to help us defray our costs, you can do so by visiting more of our sponsors or donate to our fund. Any help you can render is greatly appreciated!
