[Sponsored] Win A Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming Graphics Card (Update: We Have A Winner!)

Been hankering for a hot new Nvidia graphics card but don't have it in the budget? Why not win one for free? Gigabyte has offered up a Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 graphics card for the taking.

We've mentioned the G1 Gaming before, but as a reminder, it features a 1228 MHz base clock with a boost clock of 1329 MHz as well as a memory speed of 7000 MHz. It also sports the WindForce 3x cooler and a custom PCB.

All you have to do to enter is hit this link, add your information and click Enter.

Here's where we give you all the fine print: You can only enter once, and the sweepstakes is only available to residents of the U.S. that are 18 years of age or older. (And, um, sorry Rhode Island, you're excluded.) Entries will be accepted from now until October 21 at 9pm PST.

So get yourself over to the entry page and put your name in the hat to win a killer Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming graphics card. 

Update 11/5/14, 11am PT: Congrats to Wesley Sizemore of Pleasant Grove, UT for winning the prize!

    I'm curious why so many of these contests seem to exclude Rhode Island. I don't live there so its no issue to me, but I can't help be wonder why.

    Rhode Island has specific law on the books requiring any sweepstakes with a prize worth more than $500 to file with their government, and also pay $150 in filing fees. Basically, people exclude Rhode Island because that law makes it a pain in the ass to run the contest, and it's easier to just exclude them then file there.

    Ahh well sucks to be them. Their state government shouldn't of tried to be so greedy since everyone is just going to exclude them since they make it difficult.

    Thanks for the info.

    Well the exclusion of the Million people living in Rhode island is just a drip compared to all the people in the rest of the world who cannot enter. for example there are 500M people living in the european union alone who cannot enter.

    Given they have to ship it to whoever wins, it makes since to me to limit it to a single country so as not to have to mess with customs forms and international shipping. I wouldn't expect to be allowed to enter contests in Europe for PC parts either.

    It mentions that $270 retail value in the rules. Forget the contest. I want to know where to buy the $270 GTX 980.
