If you get 7950 (around ~$325)

One of the best deals on ATI cards.

Not bad,

I am settling on the cheapest 660 ti available at the moment, as I'm running this PC without one.

but haven't made up my mind yet.

That bundle sounds nice

I would suggest that you go through tom's hardware review on the different 660 models.

Was wondering the same thing myself. I'd be interested in buying the code from someone for cheap then :D

There is no way to know currently, but after doing some digging about the Nvidia Assassin's Creed 3 promo, those (at least from EVGA cards) are Steam keys it seems. So there is hope.

Well, last time they did this with dirt 3 it was a steam key, so it seems likely that it will be. I think usually when ati and nvidia do these promos it is usually steam keys that are provided.

Well the reason for the uncertainly this time around is because Uplay now out. So we don't know if Ubi is going to just make you go directly to them or going to go the Steam route. Dirt 3 and Batman AC both of which aren't Ubisoft games but before redeem on Steam even though they are not normally able to be activated on it. This is the first time for Ubisoft and with their new client on we can't say for sure.

I bought my GTX 670 a few weeks ago and I got a steam key for Borderlands 2.

Borderlands 2 is a Steamworks game so that isn't surprising. The new Hitman and Sleeping Dogs are too so they will activate on Steam.

Too bad 2 of those 3 games come infested with the shitty steamworks drm. Would be a better deal if it had any other store attached to it.

Is still not a bad deal at all though. And makes it even better to think about an update now (or in the future) for DirectX 11.1 hardware.

Is there something wrong with Steam that I'm unaware about? I've been using it for years without any major problems.

I feel the same way about Steam, but If you're against using Steam then you probably won't be gaming on PC enough to justify buying a $300 video card. Unfortunately almost all big releases on PC these days use some form of shitty drm.

Digital distribution is the death of the preservation of the arts.

My suspicion is it is a physical media vs. digital media thing for him. Technically it's the same difference, you don't ever "own" anything other than a limited right to play a game, but with a physical disc you feel you have "control" over things more so than with a DRM management system like Steam.

Regardless of what it says in the manual with physical media the law is on your side. No company can legally restrict you from playing your physical copy (the non-online part anyway). Nor can they restrict you from selling it or letting anyone else play it.

With Steam they can and Steam's terms of service are more restrictive than most. They expressly state that any Steam account can only be used by one person.

I'm so jelly. I got 2 7850's. At the time (few months back), the 7850 was a good bang for your buck and the 7870 wasn't worth the extra premium. But now, it pretty much is. I wouldn't jump in the 7900 series, but this deal really is good. If you sell half the games, you'll be coming out pretty good.

Wow, already own Sleeping Dogs on Steam but could probably sell the key to get a bit of my money back. You guys think a single 7900 or 2 X 7800 would wield more performance?

Because I got up early and hadn't had coffee yet. I also work for AMD and it just saw it in my email, so I thought maybe I was one of the first to come across it. Foolish, I know. :P

Anyway: Woops. Also: Sorry. ;)

I have an XFX 7850 and another brand name 7850.

The XFX is worth the extra bc of the lifetime warranty (make sure to register it in the first 30 days to get it though) and man does it stay cool. It runs just as good as my other one, but it feels like 100% quality and no hiccups.

I know when I upgrade again, I'll buy an XFX hands down. Love it.

I am planning to get 7950, its getting very good reviews. Very comparable to 670. The best and most affordable card is Sapphire HD 7950 $285 after rebate.
