    So they're giving away exactly three graphics cards...way to make a big deal out of it!
    Very nice compo nonetheless.I was wondering if it's limited to residents of the UK only?

    Just think you could mount various weapons on the Dune Buggy, pretend it's a form of Light Strike Vehicle or something and buzz around London making "Budda-budda!" noises at Traffic Wardens. At least, I would...

    I've said too much.

    Ahh a dune buggy would be awesome to use for communting to and from work here in the Fens; the roads are AWFUL!

    Still, the comp for winning a GTX280 is very nice Only problem is the question they ask Is it specific to the XFX card or to the reference design?

    P.S. I would mount a massive super soaker and do drive-bys during summer

    Looks like a con to me. Shame on you Hexus for marketing bulls**t.

    The page clearly states that you need to purchase a PhysX product to enter.

    Looks like a scam to get your telephone no and email address even if you don't buy a product.

    SCAN already have my number and email addy from when I order from them.

    GTX280 comp is free, Dune buggy comp requires purchase.
