It's a Fermi Blowout! Win A GeForce GTX 480!

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 51 comments

Palit is giving away three Fermi graphics cards to select social network users.

Our friends over at Palit have launched a contest that could put a hot-n-tasty GeForce GTX 480, 470, or 465 graphics card into your hands. Contestants merely need to hit the company's three social website pages and show a little love.

The contest actually started Tuesday, and will run on through August 16, 2010. First prize is the GeForce GTX 480, followed by the 470 as the contest's second place prize, and the 465 as the third place prize. Palit is also offering a "mystery" fourth place prize (no, they won't tell us save for that it won't involve hamsters), and five other complimentary prizes.

Ready to enter? Here's what you need to do: Do ONE of the following:

Facebook

  • (a) Head here and click on "LIKE."
  • (b) Make sure you comment on the contest entry and insert the code phrase "I got game."

Twitter

  • (a) Head here and then click "Follow."
  • (b) Retweet the name once with the code phrase "I got game."

MySpace

  • (a) Head here and then click "Add to Friends."
  • (b) Make sure you comment on MySpace with the code phrase "I got game."

To learn more about the contest--including the terms and conditions--head here.

    Kind of funny how a contest for a $500 card can generate thousands of dollars worth of press.

    Only teen queens use all three of those POS... Something tells me they could give two Sh!ts about a graphics card (unlike me :/  ). Now if it were Justin Bieber you'd have millions enter...

    let me see: you have to hit all 3 social sites to register. We've already seen the research on the effects of each type.

    1. twitter make people dumber
    2. facebook makes people smarter.
    3. myspace makes people much more vulnerable to ID theft.

    So, doing this contest will make people both dumber and smarter, yet also much more likely to have their ID stolen.

    I think I'll stick with my Facebook and continue ignoring Twitter and Myspace.

    "Like" Palit? I've never owned a Palit product, so that would be dishonest. Ok, I've got some RL friends on Facebook, but I refuse to "tweet," and MySpace is a spam/scam magnet. FAIL.

    what a disgusting contest.
    1. I havent actually used facebook since they started letting anyone make an account.
    2. i've never used twitter, and never will. just no need for it
    3. never had a myspace account.

    how about i just click some link and fill out a littler entry form like the good old days of contests?

    I think you need to edit this post, if you check there contest rules it says you only need to do ONE of of the three options.

    The site that Palit has says follow ONE of the three steps but Tom's Hardware is different because it tells you what to do in steps but not to choose. Weird.
