Bid on This System, Help Japan!

Everyone knows that the chaos happening right now in Japan is devastating for the locals. Yes, Japan makes some of our most beloved electronics and gear, and yes, Japan also makes some of the coolest games. But now Japan is in trouble.

Maybe you'd like to help, but maybe you haven't figured out the best way. No worries, several component vendors have joined together to produce a gaming rig that's posted on eBay.

Check out the system specs:

There's less than a day left on the auction, so if you feel generous to donate to the Red Cross efforts in Japan, then bid! The bonus is, you get a cool gaming rig and you help out!

Check out the auction here.

    The ZOTAC brand GPU and Zalman PSU kill this rig for me. Is it really hard to ask for an Evga, MSI or Asus VGA and a Corsair or Seasonic (heck, even XFX) Power supply?

    Also, for gaming the I7 2600K would be a lot cheaper and outperform that processor, if I'm not mistaken.

    Asus VGA card suck. Trust me, I work in RMA. Zotac is ok. Best RMA score - MSI.

  • I don't understand why would people think this is a scam? Tom's Hardware is a very legit and top news review site. Plus they also mention they will donate all the money to Red Cross and show the certificate. So don't know how is that fake and scam. Anyways, everyone have their own opinion, I just think this is a good cause. PUSH PUSH!
