    Cut and paste job from the previous competition I'd be guessing.

    Sometimes I feel like I have more chance of winning the lottery, but it would take something special to stop me entering

    Thats becuase your in with the chance of winning the overclocked version.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Not that it would actually fit in my PC... but then I have needed an excuse to buy a new case

    You might just have been the first person on record to get a question wrong on a Hexus competition Matty

    Luckily Hexus pre-empted the possibility of that mistake and removed it as an option... fantastic!

    Re: News - Win the fastest graphics card in the world!!!

    is there any chance a larger case and a better PSU are thrown in too, I suspect this is going to be a very expensive prize for somebody.

    not that it will stop me trying...

    Entered.

    I like the bit where it says:

    'In the event that the prize offered is unavailable due to circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to offer an alternative prize of equal or greater specification'

    Hmm I wonder what that alternative would be? Two 5870s?
