I plan on getting either a 7870 or a 7950 this weekend, but I was going to get it at Fry's. do you have to buy from Newegg/Amazon to get the promotion, or can you buy if from anywhere?


In North America you can purchase from:

Amazon, IBUYPOWER, NCIX US, Cana Computers, Maingear, Newegg, Cyberpower PC, Memory Express, Superbiiz, Digital Storm, MicroCenter, TigerDirect, Falcon NW, NCIX Canada, Velocity Micro.

Doesn't look like Fry's is on that list (took it straight from AMD's website). Wouldn't hurt to call them and ask if you're set on buying from there.

I'll add the list of stores to the OP.

I've had my second 7850 for a few weeks now and love the performance I get out of crossfiring my two cards. My system had a hard time playing Dark Souls at 60 FPS with one 7850, but seems to keep a steady 60 FPS now. Game looks WONDERFUL. Haven't had time to test out many other games yet, but I expect the same boost in performance.

So this morning I received an email that for the two games I'm supposed to get said that they'll be sent once the steam codes are available.

However in the email were also steam codes for Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution, and DMC. For Origin there was a Crysis 3 code (my AMD code is for Bioshock/TR), and a Uplay code for Far Cry 3.

Not one to knock getting free things, I tried the DMC code in steam but "code was already redeemed by another account"

Sent them an email to see what's going on.

Interesting. I know I read somewhere the if you buy two 7900 series you get the games from the current promo and the last promo. Sounds like a bug in your case.

I would redeem them if you have interest while you can.

They are really bringing the competition to nVidia's overpriced graphics cards. Good for PC gamers, I am a mac user and a PS3 owner so it does not affect me a bit, but man this is a good deal.

Are people starting to get their Tomb Raider Steam codes? It gets released in 4 days, and I'm curious if we'll be able to get in on the "Pre-Order bonuses" or not.

Just a heads up to people doing this...

I purchased 2 GPUs and was sent the e-mail for Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Infinite, Tomb Raider and Hitman.

However, ALL of the codes provided were invalid (you get a Uplay code for FC3, Origin code for Crysis 3 and the rest are Steam keys).

Anyone else done this having trouble redeeming their games?

I'm having the same issue....

I've contacted AMD support to inquire about this...

I'll keep you posted!

Is there any word on when this promotion ends? I was going to get all the parts for my new PC at once, but if I have to get the GPU early to get in on this, I will.

Months from now, as I recall.

Or while supplies last. I'd assume supplies will run out before the deadline is reached.

Hmmm....really hoping I get my Tomb Raider code soon. Also hope I don't have any problems with the codes because I'm really pumped for both TR and Bioshock.

Got my Tomb Raider code and activated it just fine. Said Tomb Raider (ROW) and doesn't come with the Steam Pre-Order bonuses which I fully expected it to not come with them. The game isn't up for pre-load just yet either. No problems activating the key.

I still haven't gotten my Tomb Raider code. Did you guys just sign up or did you in the past? Has anyone received it that signed up in the past? I traded one of my copies so I want to get the code ASAP to finish the trade.


Scratch that just got my first one five minutes after posting. For those of you who haven't gotten one yet be patient they are still sending.

Just got my HD 7850 yesterday, now just waiting on the keys to show up... Hopefully soon!

These deals are pretty great considering I was in the market for a new card, and I wanted and was planning on playing the PC versions of both Tomb Raider and Bioshock already.

Thanks! I've got my inbox open, but I'm glad to hear that people are getting their codes. Looking forward to snagging mine! I had been wanting to build a PC for years, and this deal (7850) made me jump. So glad that I did!

Edit: Code came this afternoon. It checked out just fine with Steam.

You are lucky, or perhaps i am unlucky?

I registered and got an email the next day for Crysis 3 and DmC. The codes they sent were used already. Checking the AMD forum, it looks like a number of people got emails with used keys. AMD pretty much doesn't know what happened, and my email to support has been unanswered. Good to see at least some people are getting keys.

When did you get your card/code and enter it? I don't know if there is an actual way to gauge how long it takes to get the download codes based on when you register the coupon code that came with the GFX card.

anyone else got a blank field where the steam key for tomb raider should be?
i know the bioshock ones are emailed later and it states that, but i get the standard "download steam and enter this key" with an empty field where the tomb raider key should be.

That just happened to me. I'm hoping it gets resolved very quickly.

I'm thinking about ordering a card, keeping the games and selling the card off ebay. But I'm undecided yet as to whether it's worth the hassle, the games will be 50% off in less than 6 months at the current rate of price drops.


Probably way less than 6 months. PC digital downloads of Square Eidos and 2K stuff seems to drop in price really quickly these days.
