Default Powercolor 6850 contest.

Looking for input of what to do? I'll probably take some heat for stepping on toes but I really don't care at this point.

I won one of the powercolor 6850s back on August 4th draw, now Oct 3rd. So far I haven't heard a peep from powercolor via email or phone. I questioned HWC last week on what is going on and no responce yet. I feel that I 've been fairly patient and now would like to know if the card is being sent or if there is a problem?

At this point I'm fairly disappointed with powercolors lack of communication, absolutly none.

Did you contact Gav?
I know you said you contacted the Staff but Gav would be the one to talk to.
Looks like he is even online now.

Lack of communication and disappointed on a free draw eh. Feel free to forward it to me.

Some draws take months to get shipped.

I think he has a right to feel alittle short changed. But I also think once he recieves the card he will be over-joyed and instantly forget about the long wait.

Chin up!
