I'm liking the 78xx because it comes with bio shock infinite as well... If I had the extra dough I'd go with a 79xx so I could get crysis 3 as well lol. So I'm looking at buying new instead of used in this case because of the $60 game that comes with it or free that I want anyways which brings my effective price down $60. (Tomb raider is just a bonus that ill probably try and get tired of quickly.)

The card is $185 not sure how that would bring it down to $60... Either way its a great direction to go. I really like the OC editions and I think they are worth it.

I'm saying it would decrease the effective price $60, not down to $60. So $125 is the more appropriate term... Probably $140 in all honesty because I generally don't screw around with MIRs.
