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.

Thought they meant that the next fermi card will have hair like Pauly from Jersey Shore...Reply
NOBODY USES TWITTER, good luck!Reply
Could you shorten that to Pauly Shore ...this sounded funnier in my head ...Reply
Kind of funny how a contest for a $500 card can generate thousands of dollars worth of press.Reply
blech.. I wish this social networking crap would go away.Reply
Who uses myspace still... I think Tila Tequila is the only member...Reply
I haven't used my myspace in over 3 years...Reply
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...Reply
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.Reply
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.Reply
