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…
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is now out, and NVIDIA have partnered up with Ubisoft to make it the best-looking Splinter Cell on PC ever. What does this mean for you? It means you need a new graphics card, of course!
Luckily, Gigabyte and games.on.net have renewed our sacred blood-bond, and in doing so secured not one, not two, but three 4GB GeForce GTX 760 graphics cards — all for you. That’s right!

Our Gear up for the Metro with Gigabyte competition had an amazing response, with 100 entries all vying for the prize. Sadly now, we’ve had to pick two (and only two!) entries, and our judges have made the gruelling decision of which two to pick.

Our massive Gigabyte Blowout Competition is now over, and what a competition it was! With nearly 170 entries, including some amazing cakes and illustrations, it was harder than ever before to pick the winners. But winners had to be picked, and so here we present to you the best of the best, including some very wonderful honourable mentions.
Thanks to the excellent folks at Gigabyte, we’ve got ourselves a bunch of fantastic hardware to give away — and we want to give it away to you. We’ve got three prize packs up for grabs, each of which contains a brand-spanking-new Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7970 Windforce Series as well as an Aivia Osmium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (check out our review right here).

Using your mobile at a gas station can cause the pump to explode into flames. Increasing the amount of memory on a video card from 2GB to 4GB will increase game performance. Blue whales are the largest living things on Earth. Which of these three facts is actually true? The answer will probably surprise you – they’re all bollocks. Mobiles have never caused a fire at a petrol station, the largest living thing on the planet is technically a mushroom colony in Oregon’s Malheur National Forest, and doubling your VRAM from 2GB to 4GB has absolutely no impact on performance… for 99.99% of users. Find out why inside.
You may remember that last month we did a thorough hardware review of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti? And that we described its “excellent performance while remaining whisper quiet” and called it “solid value for money”? Well, now we’re putting our money where your mouth is, so to speak — and giving one away.

Along with their Aivia Osmium keyboard, Gigabyte recently sent us an Aivia Krypton mouse for review, but unlike the rough-and-ready metal construction of the Osmium, the Krypton nestles comfortably into the palm of your hand and won’t really hold up if you need to cave in a skull with it. Boasting an 8200 dpi sensor, a dual chassis design and the same five onboard profiles as the Osmium, the Krypton look like a solid investment. But how does it rack up?

Gigabyte’s recently-released Aivia Osmium keyboard is a hefty beast, weighing in at 1.5 kilograms and packing individual backlighting, metal construction and Cherry MX keys. We managed to get enough people together to lift it into the workshop for a series of tests.

With NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 660 coming in slightly under the 670 price point, the question on everyone’s lips is: is it cheap enough for the performance you get? We took Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 660 Ti Windforce 2X model into the shop to put it through its paces and find out whether it’s been worth the wait for the money-conscious gamer.
