    Instead of rushing our 3870 review for launch date today, we decided an indepth analysis of the 3850, crossfire and the 3870 would be more in line with Driver Heaven's high quality reviews, so we apologise for the brief delay, however that said we have something just as cool for our readers today!

    Driver Heaven, Gaming Heaven, AMD and Valve have teamed together to give away a brand new 3870 graphics card, signed by Mr Gabe Newell !

    To enter just head over here and read the rules of entering, its pretty simple !

    there isn't any mentioning if it is US-only or worldwide. So, if it is the latter, here is my contribution.
    -Oh, i totally missed that line-

    I love playing Day of Defeat, because one well-placed grenade took out the other team. I rock!
    nah.. to be honest; I really like Day of Defeat because of the solid gameplay, great maps, the re-enforcements (maximum waiting time of 8 seconds when you get killed) that other fps's i played online lacked. And of course the variety of WW2 weapons. It's just a great game :)

    My favourite Valve game has got to be Half Life, I love it to pieces and still play it several times a year. If Gabe was single I would totally hit on him at the bar so I could tell my buddies, "yo you know the valve dude? wel I danced with him noob!"

    It'd have to be the original Half-Life, my mate had gotten the game from one of those 12 games a year offer things, and he hadn't sent the slip back, his mum said he couldn't keep it and not to open it. So we cut school, opened it and sat in awe as we watched the unfolding train ride... memories.

    We didn't get to finish it. His mum went mad and sent the game back anyway, it was the following christmas when I was able to finally pick the game up. lol

    My favorite Valve game is Half Life 2 and EP1. Just because the stunning graphics and good game play gives me good gaming experience.

    Mine would probably be Half Life 2. It was really the first game that re-introduced me to PC FPS gaming, and rekindled my obsessi.... love of PC hardware. In fact, I think I came to DH looking for information regarding the game.

    Without it, I might never have been able to share my unique charm with the community! ...My apologies.

    Favourite game ?
    I thought it would be HL2 for ever and ever, but after I played Portal...

    Well I played it a few times enjoying the computer voice and how it made me laugh. I played it because of the riddles, the voice (I caught myself actually on playing and waiting for the comments made by GLaDOS) and of course - I wanted the damn CAKE !! :D
    And the ending score - thats where the tears came out...
    After that I've played all the levels with commentary on, and again - it made me come to tears. God I wish I could meet the actress which gave voice to GLaDOS... and congratulate her (and Valve team, for the perfect script/monologues and riddles).

    Awesome!

    I've been too broke to upgrade for 2 years now, so a new video card would be a blessing. My favorite Valve game has got to be the original Half-Life. It was not only an amazing game on its own, but it inspired an incredible number of today's best mods and multiplayer games!

    My Entry - My Favorite Valve Game

    The original Half-Life is my pick, while HL2 was good, HL was cutting edge in your face kind of stuff. We as a gaming community were being exposed to some incredible visuals and some gameplay that required thinking as opposed to blind running jumping and shooting. When the game came out, I had been drooling in anticipation for some time, I had just upgraded my computer and was running ATI for the first time, I was impressed. That is my opinion, and by my own admission I am currently running an Nvidiot card, to which I have had nothing but problems (EVGA 8800 GTS), I recall having 0 problems with ATI, then and hope the new line of cards is powerful and capable of putting a thrash to Nvidia. Competition is the root of innovation, and also drives down the price for us Card Addicts who need a regular fix.
