These prizes include a grand prize of Sapphire A8 APU + Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 GPU [http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=2&gid=1093&sgid=1095&pid=1255&psn=000101].

To enter for your chance to win, all you have to do is take part in our Internet Scavenger Hunt. Learn about AMD's APU technology and complete the quiz. Easy peasy.

What kind of arbitrary list of countries is that?!

Oh well, I guess I should be glad that someone in Europe will be able to enter... *grumbles*

YAY, finally a competition I can enter....and have.

If I win, I'd love to see what Shogun 2 will look like with a new graphics card. Either that or I look forward to seeing the amount of smoke that comes out of my pc when I install this thing.

Because you have. This contest just made sure you paid attention to the same ad that's been playing all week before videos and stuff. Good marketing in my opinion.

Is anyone else having issues with #5? It says "Explained in THIS VIDEO" and when I click it, it brings me to a bunch of different videos, so I dunno which one has the answer, Ive watched them all and put in all kinds of answers, i though I paid attention well, is it not bringing me to the right video or am I just not paying enough attention?

Sweet, I've been doing some digging on APUs to build computers for family and friends, this quiz saved me a ton of time by consolidating a lot of information into one area. Still gonna do some more digging, but I'm even more excited to see what these can do for low-mid range computers.

Open to the UK?! SWEET, I'm entering based purely on that.

... Plus I wouldn't mind a free copy of Deus Ex.

... And the AMD stuff.

Glad we're finally seeing some competitions that aren't restricted to USA only.

Hope I win, i've been saving for some new parts for my PC for a while now and it's tough, seems like whenever you try and save money for something a dozen other things turn up that require your immediate revenue.

I dunno, all of those countries are wealthy countries with big technology sectors, except for Poland, which I understand does have a big gaming industry, and Romania, which is... where... Dracula lives? Wait, no, that's Romenia.

Just google it. That's what I did.

Well, I guess it's good that it's not exclusive to the US anymore; slow progress is progress nonetheless. Still, I have yet to fathom how Australia keeps getting missed. Yes, Australia. You know. That other country continent.
