I'm proud of me and I need to share this with you guy. Maybe you can try it out also.

During black friday, I bought an MSI 7770 1GB GDDR5 for 80$ CDN after tax, shipping and rebate. Finally upgrade the cpu,mb,memory for christmas. Was really happy with the 7770 but wanted more.

I had the idea of selling my 7770 instead of spending 200$ on a card. I knew i wouldn't be able to sell the 7770 for 200$. I came up with the idea to throw some old part in the sale and make a package. The package was 7770, amd x2 5200+, asus motherboard, 2x1gb ddr-800. Advertise it for 200$. Finally sold the package for 150$.

I just bought a new 7850 1GB for 182$ including taxes and shipping. After 20$ rebate 162$, -150$, 12$. So here I am with my new 7850, free tomb raider and bioshock infinite voucher for 12$.

if you can change the order i would suggest you do it. a HD 7850 1GB is not a good option when you have HD 7870 Tahiti LE cards in the USD 220 - 240 price range. this card is 30 - 35% faster than HD 7850 at stock speeds. also the 1GB VRAM is a serious bottleneck for 1080p gaming. you will run out of vram in games like bf3 at ultra 4x msaa at 1080p.

us ncix has the powercolor hd 7870 tahiti le at usd 249 (219 with mail in rebate) . just make sure the game bundle comes with the card.
