View Full Version : ATI Giving HL2 Out Free
10-24-2003, 03:05 PM
ATI is giving out HL2 copies for specific video cards purchased before a certain date...
All I want to know is if this will work with those $130 Radeon 9600SE's at Best Buy which people are testing at home with 3dmark and claiming they are really 9600 Pro's. (Says there is a sticker on back saying card is a 9600 Pro as well.)
It's a great deal so long they actually follow through with it when the game is released next year.

Are those 9600se's? that test as pros only shipped to best buy or are they all 9600se's? Any online documentation to confirm this?

I bought a Radeon 9700 non-pro in January and after I downloaded the latest drivers a few months later it is listed on my computer as 9700 Pro, but of course the memory is not as fast as a Pro. What are the memory speeds on these cards? Are they really faster or is it just a name thing too?

When half life 2 comes out I advise everyone to buy teh best video card out.

does the free hl2 apply to a radeon 9600? like a regular one? not se, pro, or xt?

If you go to Bestbuy or CC, you look at the video card box and it should have a sticker that say it will come with it or not. I know that 9600 don't and that the 9600 XT and 9600 SE do come with the Half-Life 2 coupon.

"Once you have the coupon you have two ways to get your complimentary copy of VALVE's full version game Half-LifeŽ 2:"
What coupon? I didn't get a coupon from the store... I just bought the 9800 from Microcenter.
