GIGABYTE *OC Guru Is YOU!* competition
Hey guys,

For those who haven't visited HWBOT yet (shame on you!) and don't know about this ... GIGABYTE's hosting an R5870 competition during April. Concept is simple: overclock, measure performance and win prizes :-)

- $1500 for OVERALL winner
- Free R5870 SUPER OVERCLOCK SERIES card for GPU score winner
- R5750 as lucky draw prize

So you have to have everything gigabyte as well as you have to have the card you can potentially win as well, that really leaves it open to everyone now doesnt it

See the HD 5870 Toxic, subtract 1GB of memory, add 100Mhz to the memory overclock and tweak the core speeds by ~25Mhz.
