    In a bid to increase attractiveness of its offerings even further, Gigabyte has recently announced via a forum post that it's offering up to 60€ in Steam vouchers to consumers who purchase a select Aorus motherboard. This promotion is available for both Intel and AMD Aorus-branded motherboards, and will be open until June 30th 2017 or while stock lasts. Intel customers seem to be getting the bulk of the promotion though, with AMD users only getting 20€ in Steam Wallet vouchers.

    Something that we don't see everyday is that this promotion is particularly focused on the EU. Gigabyte states it's only open to residents of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Portugal (yay!), Serbia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuanian, Estonia, Iceland, Ireland, Croatia and Slovenia. Check the list of featured motherboards and respective voucher value eligibility after the break.

    Intel Motherboards:
    • €60 with the Z270X-GAMING 9 or Z270X-GAMING 8,
    • €40 with the Z270X-GAMING 7 or Z270X-GAMING 5 or Z270X-GAMING K5 or Z270X-GAMING SOC,
    • €20 with the Z270X-Ultra GAMING or Z270N-GAMING 5

    AMD Motherboards:
    €20 with the AX370-Gaming K7, AX370-Gaming 5, AX370-Gaming K5 or AB350-Gaming 3

    Probably the best deal you could get with a hardware part.

    Good stuff!

    It's a scam!!!!! Y no luv for Middle East, Israel in particular, Gigabyte? I have both Steam & GA-AX370-Gaming-K7, albeit CPU (1800X) is MIA, but still..... lol jk

    Seriously tho, what can one buy with 20EU in Steam? Bunch of old-school shooters? What? Sounds tempting enough. On paper. :)

    First of all the list is never final.
    Secondly, you can buy some of the best games on steam under 20.

    Figures there is always some one left out :(, what i think is funny is that this is from a email account that i originally created in the UK back in 2001 (about), all so this is the first offer they or any thing they have sent to me.

    EDIT: pain in the ass mobo's with SIS chipsets was the 1st burn, second burn was with AMD's 880 chuipset when they said they going add more cpu support and removed it from the list later.

    I know, was just kiddin', well not entirely, but i digress. lol jk
    As for best games under 20EU, what'll make me happy is Quake II + all addon/expansion packs + any graphical overhaul mod (should be free of charge, 'course :)) + OST of all 3; that woul be a no-brainer.

    Hence why i barely sign up to any of this sh1t, really. Not that i'm sayin that kind of stuff ain't good, just it saves me the unnecessary headache like what you described. And yeah, this sh1t sucks. Cheers.

    It's an additive discount. You don't have to buy something FOR the 20euro. You can simply pay part of the bill with it.
    And BTW: there are quite a lot of games for 20euro. "Bunch of old-school shooters" statement looks really weird.
