NVIDIA has struck gold by entering into a new agreement with Valve to collaborate on development and distribution of its games.

To show its support, Valve is immediately giving Steam users with NVIDIA hardware four free games: Portal: First Slice, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, Half-Life: Lost Coast and Peggle Extreme.

First Slice is an extended demo of the delicious little puzzler, for those wondering, but if you already have the full game you may have problems getting it to show on your Steam list - as Tom is finding out now.

To claim your free games, just pop over to the Steam website and prove you own NVIDIA bits by taking The Test.

"More Steam gamers, including myself, play on NVIDIA hardware than any other GPU," said Doug Lombardi, public mouth of Valve. "That's a testament to the company's long history of innovation and quality."

"By working together with NVIDIA to expand our development, distribution, and marketing efforts, we're increasing our ability to serve the millions of NVIDIA customers logging onto Steam and help us prepare for our next generation of content."

The two new best friends will also work together on upcoming Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike competitions for real-life people in the actual world.

Sounds like quite a deal to us, and it will be interesting to see how it affects AMD/ATI and its customers.
