We were honoured to hold an unmissable eBay auction for an incredible signed computer, thanks to the generosity of NVIDIA and SCAN Computers. They teamed up with Chelsea FC football player Thiago Silva to build a custom Scan 3XS Gaming PC, inspired by the Brazilian National Team, the ‘Verde-Amarela’; their instantly recognisable green and yellow kit.

The one-of-a-kind machine was signed by Thiago and was up-for-grabs to raise money for SpecialEffect. Built by the award-winning Scan 3XS team, the ‘Thiago PC’ had the Brazilian green and yellow in a high-grade automotive paint that had been professionally applied, giving it a stunning finish and unique look.

At the heart of the PC was an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, the most powerful GPU in the world which means games look incredible and run at silky smooth frame rates for the best gaming experience available.

Thiago Silva remarked “Since I was a kid I always wished to conquer my dreams, and to help others conquer theirs too. It’s a privilege to be part of this SpecialEffect, NVIDIA & SCAN project!”

Dr Mick Donegan, Founder and CEO of SpecialEffect said “A huge thank you to Thiago and everyone at NVIDIA for this amazing initiative. The funds raised will help us to make a life-transforming difference around the world for gamers with even the most severe disabilities, giving them a priceless opportunity for inclusion in social and competitive gaming communities, often as an equal. The team here at SpecialEffect can’t thank you enough for your generosity.”
