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. The two winners will be selected at random, so no, the content of your comment doesn't REALLY matter, but this is more fun than seeing 800 posts of "I want it" or "gibe nao pls."

 

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).

 

3. Check your inbox here on the forum to make sure you didn't miss it. Our winners' usernames will be added to the OP here, so if you have any question about the legitimacy of a congratulatory message regarding this giveaway, please be sure to check back here and see if your name has been added.

 

And, while this isn't a requirement, feel free to give our friends over at @AMDRadeon on Twitter a follow.

 

Winners will be PMed from this account on the forum. Please do not consider winner messages from any other user in regards to this giveaway.

 

This giveaway is worldwide with no age restriction.

 

Best of luck to all!!

I have a GTX 660 in a prebuilt computer at the moment. I've started building my computer for the first time and a free graphics card would be amazing!

got a 970 strix. While the polaris stuff is unlikley to be better for me for raw horsepower, I'm very interested in the better display workings with the AMD offerings.

I'm also wanting to build a stream PC. so there's that...

Why I could use a AMD gpu? Well I am using a laptop and I am currenly building my new rig. But for now I am using a mobile Gt 755m chip to game on 720p with low settings.

Any gpu will be better then the gt 755m ;)

Hey team LinusTechTips,

 

 

I've got a very old pc with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 pared with a nVidia Geforce GT 730 ( added later when my old one broke. I'm planning to order some computerparts for my new rig but I don't have enough because the GPU is one of the most expensive parts. I game on 720p right now and it just looks terrible, I really want to game on 1080p and with the polaris GPUs it's no problem.

 

Good luck to everyone!

I'm currently using an R9 380, which is a really solid card.  A Polaris 10 card would be great for my ultrawide monitor, while a Polaris 11 card would be great to give to my friend who really wants to get into PC gaming but only has a middling prebuilt sans graphics card to his name.

I am currently running a MSI 290x Twin Frozr. I love it but as a bit of an AMD fanboy (even though NVIDIA cards have been consistently better recently) I am looking forward to upgrade to the latest card (although the specs make for an interesting comparison)

I'm using an EVGA GTX 970 SC to power a 144hz gsync monitor and a 60hz tv in dual display mode, both 1080p, and I keep getting screen flickering on my second screen and driver crashes if I play on ultra. I can't be without my computer for a month to warranty the card and I didn't spend all this money to not play on ultra. I need a new and better card!

I'm still using a Sapphire 7970. I had gotten a good 5 or 6 years out of this card now. Still chugs up a storm on most titles but I'm starting to finally see some struggle on newer titles, especially seeing as I'm running 1440p monitors.
