Free Stuff via Steam for all ATI Card Owners

If I didn't loathe Steam, I might try to take advantage of this thing they got goin on -

May 30, 2007 - Valve®, a leading entertainment and technology studio, today announced plans to deliver free games to all owners of ATI Radeon™ graphics cards via Steam, a leading online platform for the distribution and management of digital content.

Effective immediately, all owners of ATI Radeon graphics cards may receive a free copy of Half-Life® 2: Lost Coast and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch via Steam, Steam will automatically confirm the presence of ATI Radeon™ hardware and then enable immediate access to full versions of the games free of charge.

For added convenience to new purchasers of ATI Radeon™ products, Steam will be included in all ATI Catalyst™ Software and Driver packages through early 2008.

And, as recently announced by AMD, customers who purchase the new ATI RadeonT HD 2900 XT will also receive, upon release via Steam, the highly anticipated trio of new games coming from Valve: Team Fortress® 2, Portal™, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

Some conditions apply. Customers will be required to download and install the Steam software, and will require an Internet connection.
