Fans of The Gourmet Club in The Freshman will know the lengths that people will go to (and money they will spend) in order to own ‘the last of a species’. Today you have the chance to own the very last 8GB Sapphire R9 290x in the world- one of the most advanced graphics cards ever made – and it will cost you NOTHING! This amazing competition is EXCLUSIVE to KitGuru readers!
While the masses make do with an APU, gamers prefer discrete cards.
When it comes to serious performance, having a kick-arse GPU is important – but to blaze away the competition, you need to ramp up everything from the cooling to the power modulation and memory configuration.
Until recently, those with £659.99 burning a hole in their pockets could have considered the special edition 8GB Sapphire R9 290X – available exclusively from Overclockers.
Today, it doesn’t matter if you have £659 or £1,659 – you can’t have one. They are all gone. They’ve all be sold.
If you’re a Facebook user and you LIKE KitGuru as well as Overclockers.co.uk – then all you need to do in order to enter, is visit this page or you can click the glorious image below. Terms apply – so read them carefully when you can.
