you could buy the card and sell the game = Profit!

Or you be a nice guy - buy the card and put the game up for grabs in a raffle on TPU - though saying that, If i was the winner - id just sell the game. as I already have a copy of it and there are some people who will still pay money for this crap

I like the 940MHz core clock. But game bundle could make this card too expensive.

Nice, it's not a triple slot cooler.

The game was crap brand new. I'd toss it in the trash. It's mere presence would be insulting to my rig.

Can't find a review or far sale anywhere. I am sure they will hit newegg soon.
I bet the Core will hit 1025Mhz on stock voltage easy.
