Intel is synonymous, in most of our minds, with computers. You know if there’s “Intel inside” you have a machine that will handle most tasks … including high performance gaming! Want to see what an Intel powered machine can do in the hands of super talented professional gamers? Enter this contest and you and a friend might be on your way to the VIP gaming experience of a lifetime at the Intel Extreme Masters from July 19th to 22nd thanks to Intel and Best Buy.

What is the Intel Extreme Masters

Imagine getting a priority entrance, priority seating, a catered VIP guest room, and the closest seat possible for one of the most exciting gaming events in the world! That’s just part of this package the winner of this contest will experience. All of this in the historic United Center in Chicago.

At the Intel Extreme Masters tournament you’ll have amazing priority seats as top ESL (Electronic Sports League) teams battle for CS:GO supremacy. Pick a side: eight of the best teams from North America and Europe will battle for $250,000 in prizes.

Master your own computing experience with the right Intel powered machine

Professional gamers know that a great gaming experience starts with an Intel processor. Their machines boast the fastest processors, usually an Intel® Core™ i9 processor, maximum memory, and blistering fast video cards. You may not need the fastest and most powerful computer for the type of tasks you do on a daily basis; however, you will find that there is a huge range of great computers boasting Intel processors that will suit all levels of computing.

For that reason, we want you to tell us what type of computer suits your needs best. Best Buy carries something for everyone. Here are a couple machines to consider:


but also look at the range of Intel powered laptops and Intel powered desktop computers available at Best Buy, then come back here to enter the contest. Read the complete details on how to enter below for your chance to win a trip valued at over $8000!


This contest is easy to enter, but you can only enter once. Your comment will eventually appear below, so please do not enter more than one comment. In that comment, tell us which Intel powered computer available at Best Buy is right for your needs, and what type of Intel processor it has. For example, if I was eligible to enter I might write that I love the Acer Nitro 15.6″ Gaming laptop with an Intel® Core™ i5 processor.


At that end of this contest, we will randomly select one eligible comment to win the ultimate VIP gaming experience taking place in Chicago between July 19th and July 22nd. The winner will receive a flight to Chicago f (winner + companion), 3 nights hotel (with breakfast), meal allowance for dinners, VIP Event Tickets, transfers from Airport to hotel and hotel to event, and more. The total value of this amazing experience is approximately $8100!

This contest runs from May 17th to May 30th.

Remember you can only enter this contest once. However, this is the perfect contest to share with friends. Tell twenty friends and if any of them win they have to take you … right? Of course they do. But I suppose it works both ways: if they tell you first, then you have to take them! It’s kind of the game within the game, so take the initiative and tell everyone!
