At first I liked the post on FB and then commented. But after couple minutes I deleted them. I'm not the kind of person that wants things that doesn't really need them.

So good luck to all for this little gem called Palit 650Ti Boost.

If it was a Titan I would say that for sure. That it must be an April's Fool joke.

But for a 650Ti Boost even Hilbert wouldn't be so cruel to us. Right Boss? You wouldn't would you??

It's an April Fool's joke, they'll send you an AMD card instead.

Pretty much what I do. I hate how many sites rely on facebook, "get free shipping", "get a discount" etc by liking us on facebook!

For a better chance bit of good luck, hit the comment section below and tell us you accomplished these tasks and why you should be the rightful new owner of this fantastic Palit graphics card.
i accomplished the task and would provide a loving and nurturing home for the fantastic palit graphics card. it would be fed power by a quality antec neo eco and find security installed on a asus z77-v pro. it would never lack in performance when gaming by installing the best updated drivers.

ok, to be honest. i just can't afford to get another card right now and having 1.2 gigs of vram on my 570 is killing me in bioshock infinite . . .

edit: oh yeah, you can lock the thread now.
