The rebate card will probably $25 on a prepaid mastercard or visa or american express (my asus one for my monitor was amex) that you can spend online or in a store.

The game coupon is good for $25 worth of in-game currency for each Hawken, World of Tanks, and PlanetSide 2, a $75 value total. Pretty crappy really since you have to install and want to play the sort-of-crappy free-to-play games to use the in-game currency. I like AMD's deals better, they give you a game, period. No currency for a game you may not even play. AMD gives you full current games.

oh ok thank you, and yea the $75 coupon sounds like a crappy deal, i might buy the radeon hd 7770 with Free Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon & Far Cry 3, and the same $25 rebate but the 650 Ti is a little better

Don't bother with those cards. Pick up a MSI R7790-1GD5/OC Radeon HD 7790 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 instead for $110 after rebate.

sorry guys, i accidenty posted the link to the newegg website in U.S, i live in Canada so prices are different for newegg.ca (not newegg.com) (mostly higher prices)
the Radeon HD 7790 in about $150 (after rebate and shipping): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
and i dont wanna spend that much, but thanks anyways

NCIX has the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 OC for $135 AR. What price point are you finding the 650 Ti and 7770?

the 7770 is $119 (+$2.99 shipping and no rebate card) and the 650 Ti is $126 (+$10.74 shipping and no rebate card)
