    I need this card to run 24/7 365/365 F@H client for some serious things...
    Deploy it in the battle with cancer etc... My HD4850's are fighting very hard but the cancer strikes back, i can't win ... I can't (!)... I'm underpowered...

    I was told by my doctor that I have 6 months to live unless I get the only cure ... an ATI Radeon 4870 X2 card. If I get it by the end of October I may get two more years added unto my life, If after the end of October my two years decreases by 4 months with each month that passes. Help me get this card so I can enjoy the last two years of my life ... Crysis Warhead, GTA IV for PC .... Assassin Creed, Pure, Far Cry 2 ....

    My Awesome Daughter Posted the other day on why she wants this video card. I would like to add that as the father of two teenage daughters who has to work out of state 200 days a year to make a living this card for a new system would be a wonderful Christmas/birthday/anniversary gift to our family!!!

    We really will have to scrap everything we own to buy the new system to go with this great card but I'm sure we can do it as a family IF we get the card. Our current system ROCKS even if it is a year old. The trusty 8800 GTS 512 runs like a champ with a core 2 and 4 gigs or ram. Adding a 2nd kickass system will give us the ability to game together as a family.

    SOO WE Really Want This Card!!! IT will give us a few hours each day that I am gone to game together and keep each other up on what's been in our day.

    Give Me The Card Now!!!

    The Dad

    A few months ago, both my aunt and great grandma died.. A few days later my mom ditches the family and I then find out that she is getting remarried to some guy I have never met before in my life. If things aren't bad enough already, when I went to sign up for college, it turns out that there was no empty classes so I have to wait till next semester....
    Just recently, I also found out that 2 of my best friends are moving away for the city so I won't get to do anything with them very often anymore. They do happen to play online games though. Well, unfortunately I can't because I have a radeon 9250 and it's too weak to play the game.

    If only.... if only I had a ATI 4870 X2 video card... Then I could play online games with my friends and also forget about all my current problems... I could drown out my sorrows while killing other players to help take my anger out on something. Oh how I wish I had a ATI 4870 X2 video card. Life could be so much better.

    I would like to win this card because I can't take the whining of my computer anymore. Every time I sit beside it, it complains to me that I'm so cruel to not give him a beefy videocard and that his power supply unit is slacking because there is nothing that demands much power etc.
    So please help me out here and let me win this card so my computer will stop whining. It will do my head alot of good!

    Hello,
    I would like to be considered for this card, beacuse I am currently running 3870 Crossfire. It just simply isn't enough to handle many of the games I play with decent rates. I feel quite inadequate. :sigh:
    Help me Obi Wan.

    I would like this card so my son can beguin on the road to game programing. I cannot afford this card( mentioned many times) but I have contacted companies like Gamebryo Gamebryo | Industry-Leading Cross-Platform Game Development Engine | Emergent and have found out a great deal of information.
    there is another program that is free and available to middle school children and high school and colledge level as well. It ia called Alice.Alice.org
    Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a teaching tool for introductory computing. It uses 3D graphics and a drag-and-drop interface to facilitate a more engaging, less frustrating first programming experience. Alice is free to download and has been used in the sims Alice.org

    I need this card for what it was made for. gaming. I hope you choose me for the winner because computers, kids, and gaming isnt cheap. And this card will do anything thrown at it.

    I really need this card cause im using a radeon 9550, i have overclocked it to squeeze everything out of it, im playing cod 4 at lowest setting @ 640*480, i mean cmon i can barely see anything, and now my friends are playing warhammer and it runs @ 17 fps when nothing is going on the screen, with a medium size battle it goes to 5 fps :S, and now every game is pixel shader model 3.0+,everytime i want to try a new game and see S.M. 3.0 i:sigh:, i would buy a new card but where i live (Venezuela) a 4870X2 is about 1800$.

    Respected taxpayers and driverheaven staff,

    We are the parallel government installation within each system. We keep research into less known and away from your sight.

    Our present funds are rather limited at the moment. Some gray areas of our research lacks serious capital.
    Even the man himself, David Icke turned his support away from us. I can't even begin to describe the scope of that embarrassment for our organization.

    Besides, we have spent additional reserves in attempt to force Motorola 68040 world domination. We are very close, but our deeds are anything but inexpensive. Much of our logistic is involved with subliminal activity in media. This is not very easy what we do and still; we manage to make you spend and spend, again and again, each year on your new equipment! Even when you have no need for the same.

    We are just researching a new stimuli to hidden cerebrum area where we will trigger the need for anyone to have craving for Quad CPU. Most of our machines are based on heavily tuned Matrox G550 low profile cards (very, very low profile mind you) and for most of our operative underground staff, anything beyond DX6.1 is pure SF.

    Great irony, don't you think? Since all we research and place our activity is precisely the SF! Our main central supercomputer (modified Amiga 4000) requires some serious GPU power. Should you at later date, entertain the idea of releasing this post to attention of public. Please don't, we are everywhere and believe us, we are truly miserable when we had to resolve to this sort of begging.

    This is precisely where driverheaven comes to our rescue with this splendid giveaway. Thank you for your attention and will keep in touch.

    S-CEO

    Growing up with six fingers on the outskirts of Guilder was a hard life that certainly help shape me into the man that I have become. Though I was a Count, the cruelty of children did not recognize rank or place. Eventually the time came when my inquisitiveness and cunning would server me well. Through a bit of good fortune and a several vials of iocane powder I was fortunate enough to serve as an advisor to the young Reagent. In my service to the former Prince Humperdinck, I found that I had a certain knack for "extracting information" from individuals, especially those who seemed a bit unwilling at first. I was so good at what I did that there were numerous falsehoods spread about my past and even a nasty rumor about my death from some obsessed Spaniard.

    I realize that my ways might be considered a bit arcane in this world of internets and reality TV . Seeing the public’s reaction to Michael Vick has caused me to somewhat reconsider the direction of my career. After a failed corporate coup attempt as a middle manager and a family intervention (they tried to make me go to rehab, I said no no no), I have had the opportunity to do quite a great deal of self-reflection. I have to say that I truly do love who I have become, but I fully recognize the world does not share my mirror. Thus, I have come to the conclusion that I must reinvent myself, DIGITALLY.

    What better way to do this than with a 4870 X2 card? When my foes release their souls to the sound of my Unreal Tournament III dual enforcers, should not their last breathes be high definition? Does Black Lotus not deserve 60fps while annexing a GLA supply center? As my Squig Herder paints the hallowed ground of Mourkain's Temple red with dwarven entrails, should not the screencaptures be museum worthy? Shouldn’t the vt100 output of my TinTin++ have the sharpest of contrasts as I ‘equip all’? I think you know the answers to these questions in your heart of hearts.

    For the sake reform; for the sake of eternal digital youth; for the sake of crosshairs and dps, consider my request for this card.

    Thank You
    T.R.
