    Well would you? Thats the question ATI are asking today to the readers of Driverheaven. But this is a competition with a twist as they want something back in return. Confused? Dont be, follow this thread into our forums for more information....

    If you dont even know what a X1800XT is, then you need to educate yourself by reading our preview from last week over here

    Old Lamps for new

    Are you an ATi fanatic? have you been buying ATI hardware for as long as you remember? if so ATI are offering a FREE trade up to the Driverheaven member with the oldest ATI video card (ATI chipset). Still got that old RagePro in a cupboard - fancy trading that in for a X1800XT?

    To enter its simple, email me a picture of the card to zardon@driverheaven.net with it in front of a monitor displaying a Driverheaven webpage. On the 10th of December this offer will close and the person with the oldest ATI card will get a free trade up direct from ATI. They will of course want the card you are trading in, so yes you actually do need to have it ;). If we happen to have multiple winners (people with cards the same age), they will be entered into a draw to get the trade in deal.

    The card has to be in one piece, not fried or mangled, and it has to be a "standalone" card, such as a ragepro. You also have to be a forum member on driverheaven, when you email please include your forum name and the name of the card you are entering with an email header of "X1800XT Tradeup".

    Thats it, so get snapping !
