To celebrate the 15 th Annual Charity PC Race, which will be held on January 8 th at the Wynn Las Vegas during the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, contestants will be asked to build gaming systems from the ground up. Two winners with the fastest times from each city will receive an all expenses paid trip to the National Finals at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas among other prizes and a monetary donation to the charity of their choice.

Starting on November 20 th, TigerDirect will hold regional competitions in various markets highlighted below. All of the consumer races, except for Miami, will take place at TigerDirect.com retail stores.  Additional details and how to register can also be found at www.charitypcrace.com.

Since 1997, TigerDirect's "Build Your Own PC Race" for charity has tasked 30 of the top industry journalists to assemble systems based on a processor in record time. For several years, the event has taken place during the Consumer Electronics Show. This year, TigerDirect will host two separate races during CES: the National Finals, which will determine who will win the consumer portion, and the traditional PC Race which will be open to editors. Since its inception, TigerDirect has provided over $2.5 million in cash and computer equipment to schools and non-profit organizations through the race. By extending the chance to compete to consumers, TigerDirect will make even more donations to local charities.
