Not really. It take about 30-40hrs of work (less for some areas...more for others my enterprsie reviews usually weigh in at the 150-200hr mark). But its not 'work' per say ;)

Check first post, those babies are long gone. Sky's hardware sales usually sell out in less than a day.

I think he was referring to the Gigabyte GTX 780 I reviewed the other day and the EVGA GTX 780 I'll be posting tonight.

Neither are going up for sale just yet but they will be. I didn't want to post them up as the next few days are going to be pretty crazy and I wouldn't be able to ship until next week anyways.

And no, to everyone who has been PMing me about reserving the GTX 780 cards, I don't accept pre-payment for something I haven't posted yet. It will be first come, first served when they are posted in this thread and not a moment before.

How about auctioning them(24 hour silent auction via PMs?) instead of having a refresh fest for those interested? Especially since it's going to a charity...

Just a suggestion...

An auction is against our BST rules and there is no way to control it.

If the goal is donation and not reward for quickest refresh then a SILENT auction is the perfect way to go, if it works with a notebook and a pencil I dont see the sites difficulty with it, all review items should have a 12 hour silent bid, highest bid wins, start the item at a minimum donation, simple. I understand this is not an auction site and I am in NO way recommending that for the BST but if you want to raise donations a static sale wont bring in as much and doesn't let the community feel involved.

Just my 2c
