http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131569&cm_re=R9_290-_-14-131-569-_-Product I happen to notice this deal, at first I saw the price was $479.99 which I thought was a bit high since other variants of the 290 are now 400. However after reading I noticed that you get the Samsung 840 Evo 250gb SSD and the 3 game deal all with the mentioned card. Thats a darn good deal for a gamer who want's to get started with a nice performance setup as you essentially get the SSD for around half price and free games. Do not know how long it lasts but it sounds pretty good to me. With the 290X variant did the same thing. Also this card has a backplate.
