I wonder just what kind of system you could build with those funds available. Three 108" tvs, custom gaming chair,... Oh to dream!!!

I agree. After this lame stunt; XFX is now on my "don't buy list". I'm not one for cheese; and this is cheddar all the way.

To each his own. Personally, I like the double lifetime warranty. I have never had anything but good experiences with XFX. I had some minor issues which were resolved quickly and professionally. I don't let cheesy promos turn me off of a good product with great support to back it. I'm not critisizing your comments but merely wish to point out their determination to resolve the most important issue, the customer, will keep me coming back. What about the Asus ROG 5970? Is that thing a monster or what!!!

Computer stuff is "geeky" enough without bukake like this. At the very least make it believable like Apple did ahaha

Why don't they just get a toy company to make the submachine gun cases, include them with all the cards and charge a ridiculous price for them? This has to be the most unique packaging I've seen yet.

How about getting the ladies to deliver the card to you in their bathing suit? Ok, for the ladies, some studly guy.

Seriously, 6 plugs for monitors? I can't even begin to wonder what's next.

Maybe they should've bought it at some ridiculous price. I would've cost them paypal fees. That would get people talking.

Just want to point out you could get a real full auto / 3 shot burst M16 for similar price.

Colt Factory M16 A1 Transferable U Config choices : Machine Guns at GunBroker.com

Instead of a plastic toy.
