TigerDirect And AMD Celebrate The 17th Annual Build Your Own PC Race For Charity Finals At Tech Bash

TigerDirect, a subsidiary of Systemax, and AMD are proud to host the 17th annual Build Your Own PC Race For Charity Finals at the TigerDirect Tech Bash on Friday, November 7, 2014 at Miami’s Marlins Park. Taking place center field, the racer who assembles a PC in the fastest time will win the grand prize of a $1,500 TigerDirect gift card and a $1,500 donation to his or her charity of choice. Over the past three months, the Build Your Own PC Race has been touring the country for a series of regional races that took place at TigerDirect stores in Christiana, DE; Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; Jacksonville, FL; Tampa, FL; and Miami, FL. The first and second place winners from each regional race were awarded with donations to their favorite charities and an all expenses paid trip to Miami for the Finals competition.

Thirteen finalists will battle it out in a race to completely assemble fully deconstructed PCs in the fastest time. To make the task more challenging, extra parts will be thrown into the mix. Several racers have expressed personal goals of beating this year’s regional race record time of 3:34, set by Delaware’s Damian Muzzi. Following the Finals competition, all of the assembled PCs, provided AMD, will be donated to charity. The Finals will be held in Miami at the TigerDirect Tech Bash on Friday, November 7th, 2014 at 8pm. Admission to the TigerDirect Tech Bash is free with pre-event registration. A $10 entrance fee will apply for entry at the gate for those who do not pre-register.
