Question about AMD gaming bundles.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I am about to order my new rig possibly tuesday or wednesday but I noticed on newegg all the AMD cards are NOT shipping with games anymore. So what does this mean. IS it time for New bundles or does this happen alot and it will be back soon. I hope it comes back I wanted to order the Sapphire 7970 with the 4 free games but now i want to wait for the bundles again since I want all these games.

Tech Report has a story stating that retailers are starting to run out of bundle codes.

Dont buy a video card based on what games it comes with.
Buy a card based on what is the best card for your needs and price range.

I game at 1080p only. The 7970 for 330 was a killer deal and the 4 free games made it even better. I guess I will wait it out and see if the games come back if not ill buy everything but the GPU and wait for the deals to come back. Not gonna order the card without the games

Not at Newegg, at least. Based on a cursory search, here's what I found:

7970: No cards w/ bundle
7950: No cards w/ bundle
7870: Most cards w/ Crysis 3, one card (PowerColor AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV2E) w/ Crysis 3, FC3 Blood Dragon, Tomb Raider, + Bioshock Infinite.
7850: All but a couple have FC3 Blood Dragon, Tomb Raider, + Bioshock Infinite.

Thanks Im gonna wait a bit and see. Im gonna order sometime next week. I really wanted these games since each game is semi expensive so buying all the game is gonna cost me much more. Maybe they will come back in stock. 7870 is pretty weak IMO so thats out of the question.

 

I guess if it comes down to it since i wont be getting any games maybe ill grab the 760, 7950 or possibly a 7970. like i said i wanted the games.

I'm afraid that the AMD codes situation will only get worse within that time frame. "Never Settle Reloaded" started back in February, and it lasted longer than the May 31st date that AMD expected codes to run out by.

Unless AMD decides to run yet another bundle deal (perhaps "Never Settle Reloaded Again"?) in the interim, you're out of luck. However, I believe it unlikely that they'll do another similar promotion in such short succession from the end of this round of bundles.

For what it's worth, right now EVGA is bundling 3DMark Advanced and Primal Carnage with all their cards from the GTX 660 all the way up to the GTX 780 (upon registration). Their GTX 760 Superclocked w/ ACX cooler is pretty nice, you might want to take a look at that.

Yeah im going to look now at either the 7950 or the 760. Been reading alot about the 760 vs the 7950 and they both are great cards. I am still not sure on what im going to do. Nvidia cards such as the 770,780 and titan are just to expensive so what I can really afford is

 

760 @ 260

7950 @ 300

670 @ 330

7970 @ 330 (this is if the Sapphire price holds out until next wednesday)
