I haven't checked all the answers which I received yet, it's under process.
Don't worry ;) as nearly everyone will have the chance for the booby prize even if his answers were wrong.

But I think you aim for the main prizes, aren't you?  :)

ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Of course, unless the booby prizes are 5870s ;)

Best congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone for participation!

To all winners: please PM me with your full name and address with subject "Shipment data for March 333 Quiz".

Here is the list of correct answers:
1. When you look at the model names of the latest series MB's (e.g. GA-790FXTA-UD5, GA-770TA-UD3) you'll notice "A" letter there. What is the meaning of it?
 
C) 333 Onboard Acceleration (SuperSpeed USB 3.0, SATA Revision 3.0 (6Gbps) and 3x USB power boost)
 
2. What is approximate bandwidth increase for USB 3.0 interface in comparison with USB 2.0?
 
B) 10 times
(It was quite easy to find for example at: http://www.giga-byte.co.uk/FileList/WebPage/mb_091020_333/tech_091020_333.htm)
 
3. Below you can see photo of 2 VGAs taken by thermal camera. Which one of them is built without GIGABYTE UDV (Ultra Durable VGA) technology?

Answer: L (left)
Explanation : it's hotter than right one and the question was to locate the VGA without UDV (UDV lowers temperature).

P.S. I noticed some users sent their replies two times. Anyone knows why? I took me some time to eliminate these doubled PM's to avoid higher chances for them. I wonder what to do next time with such users - eliminate them from the competition completely? I haven't done it now.
