    That's funny that you need THREE of them. The imaginary Hexa-SLI build lol

    I had 3 of the 200 series and 4 400 and 3 500 + a 400 running physics. So the most video cards I have ever had is 5. Which I figure is likely extremely rare even on Hardocp. (recent mining craze bs not included.)

    No, it's only 1 you have to turn in, they are giving away 3 2080's, so 3 people can win a 2080.

    Looks like they may have done it with other parts like motherboards, as I noticed an x58 rewind post when I googled this one.

    Would be nice if you knew whether or not they got their 3 Red Card recipients yet. Win the auction for ~$350 and instantly trade it in for a 2080.

    I mean I know you are into collectible items but how collectable is the 2XX cards? I don't really remember anything special about them.

    Omg I had to actually google this because I had completely forgotten the gtx200 series even existed. God the memories are flooding back now and my brain hurts. I actually had a pair of GTX250s. Nvidia and their goddamn refreshes.
