Only 5 people will have the chance to win this package, which will include:
The highest performance AMD Athlon(tm) 64 processor, a top-of-the-line NVIDIA nForce3 Pro powered motherboard, and 1GB (2x512MB) of DDR400 memory from Kingston Technology.
Tickets to the invitation-only AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor Launch Event on Sept. 23, 2003 in San Francisco.
Unprecedented access to this event, the AMD64 technology, and the masterminds behind it.
All-expense paid travel & accommodations for the event. (see site for full details.)

It's true. And it has started. And we have already had 2 winners! Continuing for the next 3 days (Wednesday 10th, 2003 to Friday 12th, 2003 inclusive), 1 package per day will be available to win. But once these last 3 are gone, they're gone. You must hurry! (Feeling lucky? You could try to instantly win one of 1,000 other prizes instead. "Instant Wins" will be available until and including the 22nd September, 2003)

I've never been to ETSC nor did i ever contact them or AMD, so i don't know where they got my mail from. Anyone else got this?

Oh, oh, oh ... me wants to win! I don't care about the launch event, but free hardware and a free trip to San Fran would rule.

My only question is, is it open to non US people?
