My System Specs


This isn't really anything new, it's just that we're not used to seeing a dollar figure put on it.

It's already been mentioned that HWC offers its folders extra entries in any sweepstakes we run, and I believe NCIX offers bonus points for their folders, which can then be turned into something which has a monetary value attached to it.

I guess the difference here at Evga is that they offer a dollar amount on the amount of WUs submitted.

Again, I am not sure what I feel about it. A small draw here and there, a promotion or two open to all folders, no matter the WU count, I don't mind and support. heck, I even offered a discount on a 4870 I sold to anyone folding for us. Just something about putting a dollar amount on the number of WUs done makes me uncomfortable.

In a perfect world they would give the money straight to charity, but it is not a perfect wirld. This is EVGA marketing money at work. I prefer it to be used toward something semi-constructive rather than shiny advertising.
