Gigabyte Graphics Card Heist winners: Who is going home with a new GTX760?

Gigabyte Splinter Cell Promo

By on September 16, 2013 at 6:49 pm

You may remember how our friends at Gigabyte gave us three, brand-spanking new 4GB GeForce GTX 760 graphics cards to give away — Splinter Cell: Blacklist editions, no less. Well! We have now finished counting up the entries and giggling at all the videos, and it’s time to declare the winners.

Without further ado, they are…

WRITING: jt83

My greatest act of verbal stealth happened when helping a neighbour and his father with some PC issues. I’m not sure exactly how we got there, but we found ourselves exploring a folder that had some video files that seemed curiously out of place. I opened one… only for my neighbour to realise exactly what sort of ‘video’ it was.

His hand shot out like a cobra to turn the screen off while his father’s attention was momentarily elsewhere. His father turned back and asked ‘What happened to the screen?’ ‘Uh, must be some sort of graphics card issue,’ I replied coolly, without any suspicious hesitation. ‘We’ll need to restart, might take a minute or two.’

His father sighed and walked out for the room, not seeing his son almost hyperventilating and wiping his sweaty brow with his shirt.

VIDEO: SLABB

Can I just say, before I embed the video below, that I am blown away by how many excellent video entries we had. I’m genuinely sorry we could not pick them all. There can unfortunately be only one winner, and here it is.
