    Maingear auctioning supercomputer to benefit Haiti relief

    by Brian Allen on Feb 25, 2010 at 08:23 AM

    MAINGEAR Computers is holding a Relief for Haiti Charity Auction to help Save the Children and support the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

    The auction prize is a special edition Maingear Shift that features one of the last remaining AMD Phenom II X4 TWKR processors, of which only a few dozen were made. One of those processors went on eBay for charity in a previous auction and pulled in more than $10,000. Just for the CPU.

    Now Maingear’s building a whole computer around it with signed hardware and software from industry partners including Microsoft, Valve and Psyko Audio.

    It will come 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.

    Also, Maingear will donate 10% of all sales of AMD-based SHIFT PCs to Save the Children for the duration of the auction.

    The auction ends 09:12:25 PST, February 28, 2010.
