  1. I found this deal when I was searching for parts the other day, if anyone is looking to get a nice video card or add another to CFX with, this is a steal of a deal for an HD 7970.

    Plus the added bonus of 4 Games from AMD makes this thing a sweet deal.

    Looks like that particular card is no longer available. Just have to hope that it comes back in stock at that price.

    Yep, out of stock sadly, I hope more come in at that price or that they all start dropping to that range.

    Lol @ JC713, ok shout to JC for pointing out how cheap it really was :p

    Also there is this alternative Link

    Its 350 if you include the rebate, plus its their special "Vapor X" Ghx edition, it was 450, so thats not a bad deal either, but not as good as the first one.

    This is a good card, very nice cooling system.

    AFAIK the AMD Never Settle Reloaded Offer comes with three games for the 79xx series: Crysis 3, Tomb Raider?, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

    These are the three games I received. There is no Tomb Raider, that's for 7800 series. My bad.

    Below is picture from the current offer.

    Yea, but this specific card also comes with Tomb Raider, theres two cards that come with it, one is the above mentioned offer, the other is Tomb Raider.

    OK, cool, so it must be the manufacturer (Sapphire) throwing in that freebie. :eek:

    I'm sorry for a 'little hijacking' of this thread:
    if a sibling buys for me this never settle video card bundle (or an NVidia bundle) from newegg/tigerdirect/bestbuy, can I download the games now even if the video card will not arrive in the Philippines until 6-8 months later?

    I'm so jealous of you guys getting the best deals in (u.s.) town. I'm from the Philippines and such bundles are a rarity here.

    I think you can download them instantly since the codes are emailed to you. Not sure though.

    The retailer provides you with the code. They either ship it, email it, or don't send it at all...

    Once you have this code, you can claim them on AMD website.

    By the way, Tomb Raider has been added as part of Level Up offer, since May.
