    Not sure what else to say. I can't afford a new video card of that calibur, and I don't want Borderlands 2 either. Just wanted to tell you all about this, as I know it'll be a popular game.

    So you buy a 300+ video card just to get a 60 dollar game free? Seems like a deal! Guess it could be good for someone wanting to update their card but it seems like fans of the first borderlands would already have a good enough card if they played the first 1 on pc.

    It's not exactly free if you have to pay for a GPU.

    Mhmm, but if you were planning to get that graphics card or upgrade soon anyway, I'd perfer to have a new game to go along with it. Seriously, they didn't change the price of the card at all, this isn't something to complain about.

    I have purchased 2 graphics cards and received a free game with each purchase, this isn't something new.

    Offers like this (free game) are common with graphics cards. Not really news.

    Or maybe they would, and stay with me on this one... buy the video card to use as a video card, and get the game as a bonus?

    As stated these offers happen all the time, AMD/Nvidia's way of getting you to buy their card opposed to the competition, or to try to push cards they've overproduced (or rebranded at times).

    Well that's... a nice little offer. It's not much else, sure, but hey, it's hard to complain.

    It's not news in the sense of "New Sales Tactic for GPUs"
    It's more in the sense of "Game included in purchase of other item"

    I would love a deal like this, If a game like Black Ops 2 came with it.
    In any case, It's reassuring that they have included this, so we know it runs games like that perfectly.

    According to most users, nothing is news.


    Deals like this are good for people who plan on upgrading their graphics card anyway.
