There's also a dual opteron bundle with Windows server 2003 and mobo for $500. It'll be in a bunch of places for the next two months.
AMD/Microsoft Tech Tour 2005: Tour Map
June 2 Chicago, Illinois
June 6 Toronto, Canada
June 14 Tampa, Florida
June 16 Atlanta, Georgia
June 21 Dallas, Texas
June 23 Houston, Texas
June 27 Irvine, California
June 29 Burbank, California
July 1 Sunnyvale, California
July 12 Seattle, Washington
July 14 Vancouver, Canada
July 19 Boston, Massachusetts
July 21 East Brunswick, New Jersey

I'm going on July 12th. I've already ordered my venice bundle. Some people who went to the chicago one said that they give away some free stuff and there's free food. Good opportunity if you want to upgrade your pc. I think everything is NFR though, so don't plan on buying just to sell.

You have to preorder and register at the site to get the bundles. If you do it will ask you what you do for a living and if you work for a company. You can just bs that part, they only check your id when you get there and that's it. For example, I put that I was a "system builder." :lol: I think I forgot to mention that no purchase is required. All you have to do is sign up.

I think you have to print out that e-mail and bring your I.D. if you ordered a bundle. If not, I think you can just go.

I went, you have to bring your credit card and I.D. to get the bundle.
(make sure to PRE-order, or no cigar)

To get in just bring a picture I.D.

Just don't tell any of the microsuck reps that your a gamer...they dont' take kindly to us ;)
