I should be getting my Sapphire Dual-X 7950 tomorrow with the never settle bundle and it is going to be at least a month before I use the codes provided.

Ah, thanks for the info. thumb.gif

It might come with your package, so perhaps you should just wait for it to arrive.

I bought an MSI reference 7970 late November that was artifacting at stock and had to return it to Amazon. Used the codes as well and got a full refund...probably because Amazon is amazing like that. Got the new 'never settle' bundle again for my Vapor-X.

Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, and BioShock Infinite all for free. Just got to sell the duplicate codes for cheap now (already had Sleeping Dogs and Pre-ordered Crysis 3) thumb.gif.

Lol damnit I hope nothing is wrong with my card then, cause I already used the codes NCIX sent me. Wanted to play Crysis 3 on my GTX 560 and then compare to the 7970 XD

I doubt they would even bother to check that the codes were used though.. Would AMD even care?

Where did you buy from? This is newegg. Read the reviews.

Bought from NCIX.

But interesting. I guess it doesnt really matter. I'm pretty much set on having this 7970 anyway, so at worse I'd have to RMA it and get a new working one. No plans on refunding.

Newegg does ship an actual card out though. Where as NCIX sends an email with the codes. Wonder if that makes a difference.

This is how you do it. Anyone buying a card merely for the bundle isn't buying for the right reasons. Buy because you want the card, the bundle is just a big plus to me.

Hmm. I got my 7970ghz from Superbiiz and they don't give out the Unique ID until after they've got news that their item has been delivered. They send out an email with it and direct you to the AMD site to use it.

Got my codes last night, the same day I got my card biggrin.gif

How long does it roughly take for the game keys to come through from AMD?

Once you get the unique ID from the retailer, you register it on AMD site and they email you the actual game codes within minutes

I got mine immediately after entering the code from my card. I put in the code hit enter, checked my email and the code for crysis 3 was in there already. The other code gets given out when the game is released.
