Looks like AMD is putting together another promotion for those who pick up a 7800 or 7900 series graphics card. You get Bioshock Infinite & Tomb Raider free with a 7800 card, or Bioshock Infinite & Crysis 3 with a 7900 card. And if you really feel like blowing a ton of cash and buying two 7900 cards to crossfire, you get the above three games plus Hitman Absolution, Farcry 3, and Sleeping Dogs.

I read this promotion is supposed to go live sometime next week, but NewEgg seems to be offering these deals as of today.

Newegg Graphics Cards

Figured I would provide a link above. I've been waiting for a promotion like this before I picked up another 7850 to crossfire with my other card. The 7950 cards have dropped below the $300 mark and offer a good choice as an upgrade if you're looking to get rid of that old graphics card.

Edit: Here's a list of participating stores/sites taken from AMD's webpage:

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



Just added, all previous and current customers of this promotion with also receive FC3 Blood Dragon free! Credit to DarthVicious82 for the heads-up.

Excellent! Just picked up a 7950 for my new build.

Thanks PDJ, I was waiting for a good promotion like this to get my card.

Ahh, I just received my 7950 last week. Im pretty happy with my Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution and Sleeping Dogs but I would LOVE to get Tomb Raider and Infinite.

Well can't you just return it from wherever you got it and buy it now from newegg?

This would make the 7870 MYST a smoking deal when it is back in stock. Tahiti based that can overclock to 7950 speeds, those two games for $239.

Too bad I just bought one a couple weeks ago, but it makes it tempting to crossfire it..I had a ton of issues with AMD Xfire before though and I'd need a new PSU, so I guess I'll live without it.

Thanks for posting! Picked up a 7850 for my brother's birthday and I'm keeping the games.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention OP. I've been wanting to play around with Crossfire with my 7870 and this gives me the perfect opportunity. Oh, and I like to buy stuff too :)

Would laptops with a Radeon HD 7970 be covered in this? I bought one earlier in the month from them.

I regret buying the Sapphire 7850 for $250. Should have waited 8 months.

Damn. Thought I got it good when I got DiRT 3 when it first came out for free when I got my Sapphire card whatever year it was.

Eh. Mine's still pretty good to me. I'll wait till some new promo happens in 2014 or 2015 or something.

No these deals never apply to laptops, and even then, they never apply retroactively. Only for new purchases during the promotional period.

Yeah I got a e-mail back from with the same results. Oh well.

Funny that Crysis 3 is only bundled with the higher class card, like they don't have confidence the cheaper one can run it. :P

I got a 7870 in my rig and have been considering getting a 2nd to crossfire, but dont really have the money to blow on another now. Will keep my eyes open for cheap Bioshock Infinite codes now though.

Are the free games that come packed in with graphic card deals digital copies, disc only copies, or the full retail release?

Read the fine print.

FEH! I bought an HD 7850 mid last year. I got DiRT Showdown for it, but this is a much better deal. Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for a decent $170 card? That's almost a no brainer.

No more ATI? I know the two companies are the same but I guess they got rid of the ATI part?

My 6950 still plays everything max settings at 1080p. Confused why someone would need anything faster? Maybe I'm missing out on something....

Uhm because you aren't playing games at ultra and maxed settings.

Some of us also play on monitors that do better than 1080p.

Some people play on super widescreen (meaning 3 monitor set ups), or in 3D (which again, requires more power). Some people also have 120hz monitors.

I seen these deals offered on Newegg and wanted to kick myself. I just picked up a 7950 about two weeks ago from the site. Already mailed in my $20 rebate claim so it's too late for even a return/rebuy. >_<
