    This comp looks fun.

    So bonus points for a full MSI rig :). Hmm hard decision ahead. Been playing around with both my Bigbang Xpower and my Z68A-GD65.

    Are there specific settings/resolutions/etc to use in 3Dmark05 and 06?

    I think i've only got a trial version, or do i need a full version to participate properly?

    I think so, but that is the way it should be IMO for mid-range gear. When it is for mid-range gear, I think anyone should be allowed to enter. Gives a lot more people a chance to win. Not everyone can afford high end gear to get the best scores, so that unfairly eliminates most people from getting a chance to win.

    When it comes to high end gear though, then that is a different story. You should have to work for it. Having said that, I wouldn't have any problem with MSI letting anyone enter for higher end prizes too, but then that would be unfair to the people that push their systems to the limit, guys that really work at it should get the best chance at the higher end gear.

    I've really liked the job MSI has done here lately with the competitions at OCAU. I think they have been well ahead of all the other companies in that regard. Keep up the awesome work.

    I haven't owned much MSI gear, but the stuff I have owned is some of the best gear I have ever used (GTX 580 Lightning XE and GTX 680 Lightning).

    I think it's great that hardware companies sponsor competitions on OCAU :thumbup: IMHO having a prize that everyone can win is great. If all prizes were based on performance then the same people would probably win all of the time given the size of the OCAU community. I think another recent competition had the correct balance, one prize for everyone and one for the best.
