NVIDIA and SCAN team up for unique Silva PC auction

Here's news of an unmissable eBay auction for an incredible signed computer, thanks to the generosity of NVIDIA and SCAN Computers. They've 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.

This one-of-a-kind machine has been signed by Thiago and is up-for-grabs to raise money for SpecialEffect. As a special extra, the PC also comes with a Chelsea FC football shirt signed by Thiago.

Bid for the PC and signed shirt here!

Built by the award-winning Scan 3XS team, the ‘Thiago PC’ sports the Brazilian green and yellow in a high-grade automotive paint that has been professionally applied, giving it a stunning finish and unique look. The PC is fully watercooled with high end components, with a stylized etch of the Brazilian Flag on the GPU.

At the heart of the PC is 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."

The auction will run from today until 21 March.
