Im in if I can. My sisters PC has been used / abused by the futureshop techs. Apart from them destroying the heatsink (removing thermal with a screwdriver), they also managed to muck up everything else. I just decided to gut it and start over with some of my spare parts. What its missing is a gpu, its currently running on onboard graphics, as apposed to its original 4550. Good luck to everyone else.

In. a very good friend of mines brother could use a gfx card he is stuck with 3850 atm. I think he would appreciate the card guite a bit. recently they (him and his lady) lost their place to live after a recent ordeal and have had to bunk with friends . they like to game how ever his 3850 is struggling on current titles like fallout 3 and his flight simulators. i recently gave him 2gb of ram which was bad and was RMAed he got 4gb back thanks to crucial i think 4870 would really set things right with his dated system and make a nice gesture. plus on the up side maybe he might let me have his 3850 which would be cool cause it would be nice to upgrade my back up rigs 2600xt.

In. I may be selling my 6970 to put funds toward a gtx 680, and since im running P67 I really need a decent backup card to use, a 4870 would be perfect.

In - not for myself. N for BIG ED.

In for my friend BIG ED - Big ED lives in my other friends basement, pays child support for 4 kids and currently plays farmville and diablo 1 because he is limited to older intel on-board video.

His computer has an empty pci-express slot.
Pentuim 4 CPU
4GB DDR2 800MHZ RAM (this is the only upgrade he could afford and I put it in for him)
250watt power supply (sub par power supply unknown brand)

I will give him (for free) a corsair 430w power supply to run this card if he wins it.
I will document BIG ED's excitement if he wins with pictures of him playing games with his new card and power supply.

Thanks for your donation to OCN - this is just what I would do with it If I win for Big ED.

Good to see my old card going to good use. smile.gif Don't remember if you got the one I got in 2009, or the one I got used in 2011; either way they're great cards and rock solid. Great mid-range gaming card by today's standards and I hope whoever wins it loves it as much as I did. smile.gif

smile.gif My HTPC was too hot and I just didn't game on it as much as I was planning. The 360 might have had something to do with that...

Anyway, We have some great entries. I'll let this go for a few more hours until I get home and pick out the winner.
