Is this ad for real?
 
I saw this on the "Ads by Goooooogle" on the graphics cards forums "Free 7800GTX"

http://www.computer-offer.com/rd_p?p...e%207800%20gtx

A free 7800GTX for filling out a survey? Very tempting..but..:p . Has anyone actually done this and recieved a card?

Wow a free BFG Geforce 7800 GTX OC, pity the promotion is not available for the UK. :(

I just read thru all the associated terms, 10 "offers" services etc have to be signed up for and verified, mostly trial offers it seems. But part of the agreement is that the company holding the promo or it's third party affiliates can use your info for whatever they deem neccesary.

kinda makes me uneasy going through all that.
