Right now on amazon in the sapphire vapor-x 7950 picture there is a picture of the bundle that was going on. Do you still get it if you buy today? It doesn't say anything in the product description but I know sometimes you still get the game bundle card. If anyone has ordered one lately please let me know. Thanks.

Game bundles are usually a temporary bonus offer. Therefore the description for the product itself will NOT contain those items at all. They are "gift items" for purchasing in a certain time period. Usually the shipper (Amazon, NewEgg, etc) puts cards inside your package that contain CD-Keys you can use with Steam to activate your product. Other times they will email you the CD-Key.

That said, I don't see any mention of the game bundle on Amazon right now. Is this the card?

Same Card, same deal @ NewEgg.com

The game bundle ran for about 2 weeks. Looks like it may be over.

You might consider the new nVidia GTX 760. It's comparable, and only $260.

Yes if you search the sapphire card the picture on amazon shows all the games in the picture. So I was just wondering if they forgot to take it off or what. And maybe I'll go with the 760.. I was going to get a 770 but decided against it but the 7950 would blow these cards away once overclocked.. Hmm.. So many variables.. But if this sapphire came with the games I'd definately get it because I just sell the games.

The game bundle made them a sweet deal. I had my brother buy the Sapphire 7970 GHz Edition Vapor-X with the game bundle. He didn't have 3 of the 4 games and wanted them all. So it was a win win. That said, NewEgg and Amazon very prominently displayed the game bundle offer. That tag on their sites is gone. I'd have to assume it's not available anymore.

Normally I'd suggest people buy an nVidia card though just from an over all performance and driver support stand point.

The GTX 760 and the Vapor-X OverClocked 7950 are about the same performance. Except the GTX 760 is cheaper. Same performance, less money. I'd go 760 were it me.

If you wanted faster still the Sapphire Vapor-X 7970 GHz Edition is $369 after rebate. The GTX 770, which is it's close rival, is $399-$420 depending on brand and cooler. Those cards will easily beat out the 7950 or 760.

Well I guess I'll wait and see if anyone that's ordered from amazon got anything..
