Win The Ultimate NVIDIA 3D Vision SLI Dream PC. Designed By You, Built By Us

SLI Dream PC Competition

We are pleased to announce the winner of the NVIDIA Dream PC competition, after tirelessly going through thousands upon thousands of entries we have finally decided on a winning spec produced by Deming Liu from the UK. The winning design captured the essence of what makes the perfect NVIDIA Dream PC, from the use of 2 PNY GTX 580s in SLI to deliver earth shattering graphical performance through to the inclusion of 3D Vision Surround, ensuring complete and total immersion when blasting through your favourite games.

Here at NVIDIA we believe in the philosophy of a balanced PC, specifying a component mix that complements the overall performance of PC does not have to involve £700 CPUs or 32GBs of RAM. As you read though the full spec of this monster below you can see how much thought and detail has gone into its creation. The Intel i5 2500K was by far the most popular choice for the CPU and coupled with the B3 rev of Intel's P67 chipset will let the GTX 580s fly at full speed when in SLI mode. We loved the use of an SSD for the primary HDD but also the fact the not too much of the budget was invested on SSD tech and that the main storage drive is still mechanical. The use of the excellent OCZ ZX Series 1000W Modular PSU also means the system will have the right amount of solid, clean power combined with the excellent cooling and athletics of the Silverstone case finishes the build off perfectly.

Winners Statement

As part of the competition we asked you all to submit a statement about your design and why it should be picked. "There is no compromise when it comes to gaming, that's why 2 of NVidia's finest single GPU cards have been utilised. The i5 processor provides top performance for its low price. I have included 3 x 120Hz monitors along with an NVidia 3D kit for some insane gaming visuals. Finally, all games and game saves should be saved onto the SSD for snappy performance when loading and playing the game. The case has a side window to show off all the magnificent hardware within while at the same time keeping the processors chilly. I would love to win this fantastic piece of work and play my favourite games the way it's meant to be played!"
