QuakeCon 2013


Every year over 7500 PC gaming enthusiasts assault the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. This year is no exception as Bethesda and ID are expecting 10,000 show attendees. The unique thing about QuakeCon is that it is no standard video game expo. It is also the largest LAN event in the US with one third of attendees bringing their own PC to take part in community gaming, BYOC tourneys and late night shenanigans. The fun doesn’t stop there as QuakeCon is also the home of the premier professional Quake tournament where some serious cash is up for grabs.

We will be in both the Expo Hall and the BYOC giving attendees the chance to take part in a range of activities. In the booth fans will be able to demo the latest GeForce GTX hardware and the highly anticipated NVIDIA SHIELD. That is just the tip of the iceberg, BYOC participants will have the opportunity to test drive the all new GeForce GTX TITAN, 780, 770 or 760 in their own PCs! We are loaning graphics cards for matched donations to Child's Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games.

Contribute $5 or more and we'll loan you a GeForce graphic card at your BYOC computer! Also the first 100 donors will receive a limited edition NVIDIA 4 GB USB drive with the latest drivers and GeForce Experience!

  • $5.00 - GTX 760 / GTX 770 for 3 Hours
  • $10.00 - GTX 760 / GTX 770 for 4 Hours, OR GTX 780 for 3 Hours
  • $20.00 - GTX TITAN for 3 Hours

NVIDIA and EVGA reps onsite will assist with loaner installation, answer questions, and sell hardware from Thursday to Sunday Noon. Find them in the BYOC section labeled ‘Loaner Program’ to participate! The loaner program is first come first serve and cash only so if you are interested in test driving the latest in gaming graphics technology make sure to stop by early!

We didn’t stop at demos. There will be many prizes to be had both in the Booth and in the BYOC so make sure to get your Twitter thumbs ready and rock your NVIDIA gear. You never know when our street team will be wandering the show floor looking for people in need of upgrades!

To top it all off each night from 9pm – 2am CST, our friends from the local gaming shop Roll2Play will be joining us for late night table-top games and hijinks. You can sign up to reserve your spot for each night in our booth at the Expo Hall. There will be much fun to be had and potentially even some prizes. Late Night Gaming will take place in the Hilton Anatole and exact details will be available in our booth at the show. You can find us at booth # 313 front and center in the Expo Hall.
