TigerDirect and AMD Celebrate the 17th Annual Build Your Own PC Race for Charity

Finals to be held in Miami at the TigerDirect Tech Bash in November

 
PRLog - Aug. 4, 2014 - MIAMI -- TigerDirect (http://www.tigerdirect.com), a subsidiary of Systemax, and AMD are proud to announce the 17th annual Build Your Own PC Race For Charity. The race is back and better than ever this year, with the finals to be held in sunny Miami, FL! The racer who assembles his or her PC in the fastest time in each city will win an all expenses paid trip to Miami for the finals competition during the 2014 TigerDirect Tech Bash (http://www.tigertechbash.com).

“We’re thrilled to partner with TigerDirect for the ‘Build Your Own PC’ contest, and we’re excited to see if a new time record will be set,” said Gerald Youngblood, Director of Channel Marketing at AMD. “The contest brings PC enthusiasts together in competition to showcase their skills for a charitable cause in a unique environment.”

For years, the TigerDirect Build Your Own PC Race (http://www.charitypcrace.com) has been recognized as one of the most anticipated events at Las Vegas’s annual Consumer Electronics Show, and until 2012 was only available to journalists. In 2013, when TigerDirect opened the races to the public, they received an overwhelming response from consumers and tech enthusiasts who were interested in competing and attending the events. Due to popular demand, the race has since undergone tremendous growth, and TigerDirect is now pleased to announce they are moving the National Consumer Finals to a new home, the annual TigerDirect Tech Bash held in Miami, FL.

The first to assemble and boot their high performance PCs in each regional race will win a trip to Miami to compete in the National Finals in November 2014 during the 3rd Annual TigerDirect Tech Bash, and the top three finishers will receive a TigerDirect Gift Card and a donation to the charity of their choice.
