Would you like to test out one of the EVGA cards? So go to the EVGA website and sign up for EVGA Loaner Program (ELP), which gives you the opportunity to review the latest EVGA products for two weeks (only if you live in the US or Canada) right in your comfortable home. It works as following: first you need a free registration, then you need to choose the product you want to test out. The company will randomly select participants and if you are selected, EVGA will ship you a product to test and review for two weeks. You will then send the product on to the next person selected by EVGA – the only cost to you is shipping via UPS to the next designated participant. For now the only two products available in the Loaner Program are the EVGA X58 Classified motherboard, and a 22" Samsung monitor with 3D Vision Glasses.

For more information about ELP, click here.
