I have a R9 380, but I want to upgrade so I can play all of my games on high settings. Also my current card crashes spontaneously on certain games.

So AMD's new graphics cards are here, and they are pretty sick... But what's even more sick than hearing about a new graphics card? Owning one for yourself!

Aw yeah man, we are giving away one Polaris 10 video card and one Polaris 11 video card thanks to our good friends over at AMD.

 

So, how do you enter to win one of these fine graphics cards?

 

1. Post a comment below telling us what graphics card you're using in your rig and why you want an upgrade to AMD's Polaris lineup.

2. Check back here in about a week when the names of our two winners will be added to the OP (giveaway execution is an art not a science people, so I apologize in advance if winners aren't announced in exactly one week).

Currently have a AMD HD 7850 looking at selling this computer and doing a watercooling build with the cash. Since I built this computer so long ago it will be a major upgrade and winning this will definitely help the wallet :)

Dear AMD/LinusMediaGroup,

           

           i like PC Gaming i started a few years ago. I started with an old 1gb GT 730 by nviddia. it sucked horribly so i saved up a little bit and saw an R9 270x open box at a microcenter nearby i bought it and my games were all of a sudden hitting 60 fps with good settings. so i kept that for about a solid 5 months. after a while i was on craigslist and saw someone was selling an R9 290 so i replied and got it for under 170 bucks. Now I can Max Out Almost every game i run into and now...EYE NED MOAR

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Sincerely Ryisher

 

P.S. i love amd like kanye loves kanye

I currently have a R9 290x in my PC, but getting a polaris would not only help my performance but having an extra card would let me and my Girlfriend play together without having to worry about her pc being good enough !!!

I would really like to get one of those Cards I'm super curious about them and would like to see a new hope for budget gamers and something to force NVIDIA to down prices a bit more!

In my first computer I had a Pentium 4 and an ATI Radeon Card and it would be pretty great to make a gaming machine with the Pentium g3258 and a Radeon card. A modern "version" of my first computer would be a really nice project!

I decided to finally build another gaming rig coming from the old and famous q6600.

The only thing I haven't decided for is what graphics card to put in the system..

So yeah this give away couldn't be timed any more perfect for me.

First because I wont have to buy one which saves me a lot of money.

Second and most important I don't have the make the difficult choice of which card to buyxD

 

Anyways keep up the awesome work!

The current card I am using is an R7 260X and I want a free card to be able to buy basically a whole new system as after 4 years of cheap components it's kinda starting to break down with random errors and black screens and blue screens and artifacts and the list just keeps going on.

I curently have intel hd graphics 530 because my 2x gtx 470 SLI (I got them as a gift bacause they were problematic) burned themselves before winter. It was a nightmare anyway bacause they had overheating issues and in summer I even couldn't run them because they were to hot and were shutting down whole PC even in idle. Since then I am waiting for new gen graphics. I was eyeing RX480 but after release price in our country (Czech Republic) starts at 320USD which is significally more than I expected. And we don't even have non-reference cards yet which should cost a little bit more. Moreover gtx1060 was released earlier than expected and non-reference cards are cheaper. They starts at 290USD thanks to our dealers. Yes we can argue about performance in dx11 vs dx12(vulkan) but after calculationg our prices to performance per dollar gtx1060 wins. And I don't see a reason why anyone, including me as poor student in relatively poorer country (in comparison to USA, Canada, etc), right now should buy an AMD card in our country. For AMD's sake I hope it gets better.

I could use polaris card to compute some tasks to school (quantum mechanics etc.) and of course some gaming too.

P.S.: I have black/red themed PC so it will fit nicely!
