    The card until today that have impressed me more, had the same number! so I want to see if this "nvidia" as you call it, can surpass my amazing 8 pipeline, 128mb Radeon card!!

    I've tried playing World In Conflict, Bioshock and Crysis on my ATI 3870.

    It is my understanding that these games aren't actually supposed to be slide-shows.

    Will a 9800GTX help?

    Let's find out.... :lol:

    I spent this weekend overcloking the hell, out of my CPU, only to find that is my graphic card that is limiting my system!! so this nice peace of hardware would be quite convinient.

    I deserve this card because I have never mounted a card that's more than 2 cm longer than the PCI-E slot on my sub-100 dollar motherboard.

    If you send me the card I promise to borrow it to Naz so he can figure out that it's not just his graphics card who is limiting his system.
    Give it to me and I'll fit in a lovely quad-core next to it :D
    Or else I'll just have to go dual and you would make me cheat on Zotac with a Palit 9600....
    Don't stand in the way of true love! It has been written in the stars that only a pure heart may recieve it!Let me be with my very own Zotac

    Why do I need the card? I don't - but my computer does and as I'm a man of my word I'll let her have it if I win! I'm generous like that ;)

    Please give me this Zotac 9800GTX so I can lock it in my safety deposit box so no one can ever lay their grubby hands on it again.

    You should give the card to me so I can take pictures and post them in a thread and make everyone else jealous.. Then they'll say stupid things in the thread about how the contest was fixed, etc, and Zardon can ban them and close the thread- and that will make his day! LOL..

    "Do the homework, save the world." This is why I deserve to win.

    I've read about the first 15 pages of replies and they mostly range from because I said so to watching awesome high-def porn, to becoming "elite" in games, to having the best graphics, to being able to play current/new games by building a new comp, and so on. But no one really said anything about what contribution to society they could do with a $300+ (according to newegg) card. They all talk about for some personal gain or for some personal pleasure. (This is not to say that I won't be doing anything of the sort mentioned above, because I will...however...).

    This card is going to be given to you, free of charge, shipping is probably free too (if not, I'm sure one could find some way of coughing up 5-10 bucks by selling sperm, selling plasma, rendering "services" :lol:). The least one could talk about is giving back to the community in some way.

    And so, with this card, (and the new computer) with this awesome new horsepower for graphical computing, I will use it for school/nerdy programs. I'm studying to become a nuclear/mechanical engineer and with this major comes with obstacles of being limited to the "# of sheets" when using CAD programs. Having such an awesome card will allow more "sheets" and thus allow more complexity in models/processes/etc. My friend, also studying to become a nuclear engineer, have vowed that one day we'll find a method to achieve nuclear fusion and keep it under control (think of Spiderman 2 the movie minus Doc Ock drowning with the mini-sun (since in reality it'd actually kill us all by continuing to grow)). With energy problems in today's day and age, it's really a big concern (*cough* gas, CO2 emissions *cough*). (Yes, I know that Quadro and FireGL are designed specifically for those commercial applications)

    The second contribution to society, since not many people can afford to pay $300 for high-end cards (otherwise girlfriends and wives would kill us alike, or we'd starve and live in a box for a month) is simulation of fluid flow and its thermodynamic properties. Fluid flow? One might ask what does this have to do with society. Fluid flow is extremely important and is a class that I'll be taking in the near future. Because of the movement of fluids through a coal power plant, a nuclear power plant, movement of air even, deals with the efficiency of the processes involved to create power.

    There's so much to do with a $300 card besides for one's personal gain (and again it's not like I won't be doing the things everyone else has said in this form, because I will), but there's so much you can do to help back if you're given this card from the community. Give something back. You owe them as much as they owe you.

    This is why I deserve to win. I do the homework to save the world.
