19 runners-up will win the game, too

Win Rescue HQ: The Tycoon and an MSi GTX graphics card in today's contest!

I love giving away games. I love giving away physical things to play those games. So today, I get to combine my two loves and give you guys both a video game, AND something that'll help you play said game! I'm already in love outside of the internet -- now I get to double down. It's exciting.

I've got 20 keys for Rescue HQ: The Tycoon to give away, as well as an MSi graphics card so you can do graphics-y things on your computer while you play it! Who doesn't like graphics?

There's a lot going on with this one, so maybe you'd be better off checking it out for yourself over on Steam! But in Rescue HQ: The Tycoon, you're tasked with starting up an emergency situation unit, complete with police, ambulance, and fire rescue, to help people in need. You'll upgrade your facilities, train new responders, manage budgets, and do all of the other things we don't really think about when our friend Jared gets drunk and falls off a bus and we have to call the meat wagon to pick him up. Damn it, Jared. Look at what you're doing to our emergency workers! Keep it under control!

So we're giving this game away, but we've also got a graphics card to give you! I don't know dick about computers, but I'm told this one is nice. I'm going to list some features here and let you decide for yourself. Do you want a free graphics card or not?!

Powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics processing unit (GPU)

With a 1379MHz clock speed and 1493MHz boost clock speed to help meet the needs of demanding games.

4GB GDDR5 (128-bit) on-board memory

Plus 768 CUDA processing cores provides the memory needed to create striking visual realism.

PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface

Offers compatibility with a range of systems.

NVIDIA CUDA technology

Harnesses the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) to optimize computing performance.

NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync

Disables VSync when frame rates fall below the locked rate, and re-enables it when they return to the locked rate, to significantly reduce stutter and prevent screen tearing.

NVIDIA G-SYNC technology

Scenes appear instantly, objects look sharper, and gameplay is super smooth, giving you a stunning visual experience and a serious competitive edge.

DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.5 support

Enhances gameplay by delivering ultrarealistic images, detail and texture and improved lighting effects that create lifelike interactivity.

DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs

Enable flexible connectivity.

I don't know what any of that means!

Ok, enter to win by leaving your name and email address in the widget below. You can enter daily for additional chances to win. For bonus entries, follow Dtoid, PCI, and stillalive studios on Twitter, and share our contest post with your friends.

While you're waiting to see who won, explain computers to me. I need help.

We have one graphics card and game key bundle, and 19 additional keys for runners-up to split between Dtoid and PCI. You must have a United States shipping address to win the card. Winners will be drawn Friday, August 9.

The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.
