NVIDIA is hosting the Grand Finals of it’s Call of Duty Black Ops II Rivalries tournament this Saturday at the NVIDIA headquarters. The gaming competition pits various teams from colleges across the US against each other for NVIDIA graphics card donations to their respective schools and an ultimate prize of gaming PCs with NVIDIA GTX 680 GPUs for each team member on the winning team.

Carolina University, and Oregon State will all be competing at the event. Of course, the game of choice remains Call of Duty Black Ops II and each team member will game on NVIDIA-provided gaming PCs with the option of using a controller.
