    XFX Extreme PC Garage: Your chance to be on the show!



    This summer will see the launch of a new show from XFX called the 'Extreme PC Garage'. Lucky PC users get a complete system upgrade with no expense spared and absolutely filthy levels of performance; no more crappy framerates! What's more, you could be on the show. All you have to do is convince the Extreme PC Garage folks that you're deserving of a complete PC overhaul.
    XFX's "Extreme PC Garage" is a new show airing this summer where we take your computer and turn it into the computer of your dreams. We're going to deck it out with the latest hardware, the hottest accessories, and the coolest games on the market. We're all going to customize it to match your personality as it will not only be functionally the fastest gaming system out there, it'll be a work of art made just for you and only you. There's practically no limit as to what we'll do to this system, the only rule is to make it insane. When one plasma screen is sufficient, we'll do two. When one video card is sufficient, we'll do two with water cooling.

    We'll be hand selecting a winner every episode based on your letters, photos, and video tapes. Tell us exactly why you think you deserve a new tricked out PC. Are you sharing it with 5 roommates? Are you training to be the next Unreal Champion? Have you been playing all your life but can't ever afford to have a decent PC? Or are you just a really nice guy who thinks it would be good karma for us to pick you. Whatever the reason, we want to hear it. Convince us why you are "The One".
    Check out the XFX Extreme PC Garage website for info on how to enter.

    I'm interested to know - if this is an "Extreme PC Garage", then what does a normal PC Garage look like? Never seen a PC Garage before.

    well, no harm in having a go at entering. even more amusing if someone like me actually gets selected and has their computer pimped-up to the max... what I'd gain from it all god knows !
