Recently I have been visiting and posting occasionally at http://evga.com/forums/. Seems like a community of nice folks, some happen to be darn rich too !! with rigs having score of over 20K for 3dmarks. Noticed that those with such high scores had Evga’s 8800 Ultra in SLI configuration. Evga has this mods rig thing going on , where if you enter your rig you can win $1000 sponsorship which you can spend to upgrade your exsiting rig, there are few rules though , like you must have picture (1 atleast) of your system uploaded, a valid 3dmark score (valid score should look like this : http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=300683 ) , and thats about it !!.
Few things about 3dmark score , you will first need to download the latest version of 3dmarksbench marking software from http://www.futuremark.com/download/ or you can download from http://www.a1whs.com/randomdownloads/3dmarks/3DMark06_v110_installer.zip at kinda faster speeds. Install it and run the test for benchmarking at a resolution of 1280X 1024 only otherwise your score will be invalid. Score can range from 0 to infinity and does not contribute to increasing your chances to win the $1k sponsorship. But it must be valid score!!
EVGA will after every 200 users who enter their rigs announces winner of $1k prize. Recently its been kinda slow as not many users are entering their rigs and are either not EVGA fan !!. But you do not have to be an EVGA or own any of their products to win, just signup and enter your rig and thats about it, but you will need to visit the site occasionally to see if you have won or not, and if you have within 14 days will need to email them confirming your identity , address etc etc. More rules and about mods rig you can check out at http://evga.com/Community/ModsRigs/terms.asp
But the community and forums seem to be decent, not too active though, might take days or at times never to see a reply to your thread of post !! Just depends on how many are interested in the topic itself. Few things however evga boards lack like for example missing feedback/support section where users can post their problems and maybe get a fix from fellow members or moderators of the boards. Personally I have never tried any EVGA products cause of their higher prices and limited budget I survive upon !! But if you have tried their products I would like to hear about your experiences with their support,product quality and overall performance of EVGA , in case in future I decide to go with EVGA products !!
Happy browsing and good luck if you enter the contest, remember luck plays the most important part !! So, if you are not lucky enough do not curse them for not selecting you !
