Default GIGABYTE *OC Guru Is YOU!* competition

Hey guys,

For those who haven't visited HWBOT yet (shame on you!) and don't know about this ... GIGABYTE's hosting an R5870 competition during April. Concept is simple: overclock, measure performance and win prizes :-)

- $1500 for OVERALL winner
- Free R5870 SUPER OVERCLOCK SERIES card for GPU score winner
- R5750 as lucky draw prize

More info:
