US $1000 for the winner
Gaiwnard has started yet another competition that will be open until September 26th where you can win thousand bucks, in case you manage to get the highest 3DMark 11 score.

As you would have guessed, the contest rules are pretty simple and all you have to do is push your Gainward graphics card to get a highest 3DMark 11 score with the Performance preset. As noted, the first prize is US $1000 while the second and thrid best score will win Gainward's Phantom3 GTX 580 and GTX 570 cards.

In addition to this main competition, Gainward is also holding a weekly "Precision" contest where you need a 3DMark score that ends up with numbers of the giveaway card, for example, P6570 or X1570 for the second week Phantom 570 prize. Of course, one winner will be randomly drawn among all registered users with such a score. The prizes for this contest include Phantom 560, 570 and 580 cards one for each for weeks of the contest.

In case you are interested you can find all the details here.

Right or should i say a heavily OCED pair of GTX 580.

If you have an Nvidia card you will already have spent way over $1000 to win the prize.

this is a way to pay yourself back for buying the 580's or 590's!!if you were confident enough in your OC skills you could buy a few 580's and make your money back!! and you can still win the precision contest with any card as long as your score ends in 560,570, or 580...why is everyone on here a whiny bitch?

I like the Precision competition it's something
that everybody have a chance for winning .

but sadly they won't accept my Palit video card. :sad:
or maybe they do Palit and Gainward are exactly
the same all I need is flashing a Bios ;-)

The HD 6970 trade blows with the GTX 570 on 3DMark11, so buying a GTX 560 is pointless. Better off with the HD 6990 in QF, GTX 590 in QSLI, GTX 580 in SLI or HD 6970/GTX 570 in Multi-GPU. Buying a GTX 560 for breaking the 3DMark11 record is like buying an HD 6870 for that, totally pointless. ¬_¬
