Is it major enough to entice one to jump from an 1100T or is that just wishful thinking?
Hmmmm....not sure the perf difference over an 1100T.

Well the offer is great, I personally would rather see more discounts on the cards.

I don't want those games specifically, so I'd rather see the deal in the price of the card itself, then use my savings to buy the games I do want.

As the saying goes; you can't please everyone ;)

NCIX added it to my order today as well, I rage on them often enough this put them back into my good books for now. I had to phone in to get it though.

Well this sucks. The only free game that would benefit me is Far Cry 3, and it's been out for sooooooooo long :(

I wonder if I can buy a 7950, return it, then get a 7850...

Free games are great, but I believe the only bundled software I personally had any use for was 3DMark 11 which came with my MSI 560ti TF.
