Received the following press release earlier today, this is a great cause. It is wonderful to see the technology sector banding together to support Haiti right now. If you can afford it, please support this auction and if you cannot, just visit the website and spread the word!
MAINGEAR Computers, award-winning builders of high performance custom computers, is proud to announce the Relief for Haiti Charity Auction in benefit of Save the Children to help support the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. This special edition SHIFT will feature one of the last remaining AMD Phenom II X4 TWKR processors, of which only a few dozen were made. The last time one of these processors went up for sale on eBay for charity, it went for over $10,000 – just for the CPU. For this charity event MAINGEAR is building a whole computer around it with signed hardware and software from industry partners including Microsoft, Valve, SilverStone, Kingston, and Psyko Audio.
“We’re thrilled that so many of our industry partners leapt at the opportunity to support this cause.” said Wallace Santos, CEO and Founder of MAINGEAR. “With AMD’s TWKR, this is truly a special system and it should generate a significant donation to Save the Children’s worthy cause.”
This unique MAINGEAR SHIFT comes with a Radeon HD 5970 signed by AMD CEO Dirk Meyer, a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate signed by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, and a copy of Left 4 Dead 2 signed by Gabe Newell and the crew at Valve. In addition, MAINGEAR will be donating 10% of all sales of AMD-based SHIFT PCs to Save the Children for the duration of the auction.
