    Thanks! If the 1050ti is good enough for scan then it's good enough for me

    Adequate for 1080p with sensible expectations and demands.
    I expect mid to high settings should give decent framerates.
    And a system capable of that is more than I have now, and would be very welcome.

    1050 ti can do 60fps or more in most titles at 1080p medium or above settings.

    At least some of the prizes are worldwide - just about ALL the US tech websites limit their competitions to US & Canada...

    Seems like my theory that "e-sport" is just a euphemism for "low-end" is pretty spot on

    Re: Day 31: Win a Scan eSports Gaming PC

    Funny, the link posted for the PC comes up "End of Life" on Scan?
    Is the prize the last one Scan built?
