Fourteen Video Card Giveaway

Let’s try this again with the contest here. We had no entries for the last one, and we think that’s because the time limit was too short at one week, so we’re starting it over and running it longer for all of the cards we have to give away.

Starting today, Friday December 17th, you can get in for a chance to win one of fourteen Sparkle Nvidia GT240 Video Cards. We’ve got a few different versions for you to win like Low-Profile, Overclocked and Standard Editions. Since it’s so close to the holidays we’re going to run this contest through the new year and for a little over 1 month. The contest will end on January 31st 2011. So you have time to get in on it, but don’t wait too long though. Continue reading to learn how to win a card for yourself and what you’ll need to do.

The cards are Nvidia based, an assortment of GT 240 cards:

Sparkle GT240 Low Profile 1024mb DDR3 with DVI / CRT and HDMI

Sparkle GT 240 1024mb DDR3 DVI / CRT / HDMI

Sparkle GT 240 OC 1024mb DDR5 DVI / CRT / HDMI

Sparkle GT 240 512MB DDR5 DVI / VGA / HDMI


Feel free to go through ANY of the following actions to win”:

Option 1 – Write a review about

–There is no requirement as to the length of the review, and you can write it anywhere you wish like your blog, forum, or opinion site like Epinions if you’d like.

Option 2- Pick any product on technogog and compare to it your own experiences. Essentially you’ll let us know how we did when compared to what you thought and your experiences with the product.

–There is no requirement on the length of the comparison and no restriction on which aspect of the product you are going to compare; but you do need to make it clear on which product on technogog you are talking about.

Option 3- Become a Fan on our FaceBook page which would be HERE and let your followers know about the contest and have them let their friends know.

Option 4- Follow us on Twitter and Tweet about the contest and have your friends Tweet / Re-Tweet about it.


Remember you can publish it wherever you want on internet, such as your blog, forum, Epinions etc.

If you want to publish it on various place on internet in order to have better chance to win the prize, you need to write different text to join the competition again.

You do all of these things as well, and have an even better chance of winning.

The idea of the contest is to get the word out about technogog, and as a thank you for doing that you’ll get a video card that has an MSRP of about $120.00.


How we’ll pick the winner:

We will evaluate the following things:

(1)content of your review/comparison

(2)how your readers/friends interact with your content, such as how many comments you get on your post; how many tweets you get etc


Any questions you can just add them to this post.

When you post your review, tweet etc, just add a link to it in the comments below.


Contest is open to everyone, everywhere. If you’re out of the United States though we cannot guarantee shipping to you, that all depends on your local mail system once it leaves this country.


Contest will end January 31st 2011 so you should have more than enough time to get in an entry.

    the retail value of the card is *not* $120. It can be purchased for as little as $40 in many retail stores.

    • January 19, 2011 at 12:36 pm

      GeForce 240 cards start from around $80 where I checked (which is high profile stores). I imagine that it’s possible to get them for less, but I’d be happy for some references to a $40 one. Remember also that MSRP doesn’t equal the price in stores, and certainly not the lowest price you can find.

      Some of these cards are marked as “deactivated” on Newegg, so I can’t really tell how much they’re supposed to be worth, but I’d say that $80-$100 is a reasonable street value for these cards, so MSRP $120 may be correct at least for the most expensive of these.

  73. March 9, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    I received my card today, and I’m in Eastern Europe so guys be patient and if the mail services in your country are any good you will get yours. Mine is a 1024mb DDR3, contains a low-profile brackets for a low height HTPC case and has a full size HDMI connection (unlike my ASUS GTX460 :D). It’s going to be used as Folding and PhysX card for now and if I have the time I’ll do some benchmarks to see if there are improvements with games using PhysX. After all thank you Test Freaks and especially Kristofer Brozio for organizing this nice contest and for sending me one :p
