AMD, for a limited time and while supplies last, will bundle three games with the purchase of a Radeon HD 7900 Series graphics card. The qualifying cards, the Radeon HD 7950 (now $399) and 7970 (now $479), will be bundled with DiRT Showdown, Nexuiz, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution with The Missing Link DLC.
Getting a game bundled with your GPU is not the most unheard-of practice, but could still be a good deal regardless. Bundling three high-profile games and an expansion DLC for one of them is very likely to be a good deal however you look at it.
AMD will soon launch their “Three for Free” promotion for qualifying Radeon HD 7950 and 7970 video cards from participating resellers. With this program, AMD will throw in DiRT Showdown, Nexuiz, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution with The Missing Link DLC with their video card.
AMD’s throwing DiRT in a Showdown?
The selection of games is quite impressive but they only serve as BBQ sauce for the promotion: the HD 7000 series are receiving price cuts.
AMD is lowering the price of the Radeon HD 7970 to $479 and the HD 7950 to $399 along with the three-and-a-bit free games. Also cut in price, although not qualifying for the free games, is the Radeon HD7770 which loses $20 off of its price tag with an expected price of $139. Check out Ryan’s review for the performance of that card.
You can keep a lookout for these updated prices here on Newegg.com!

Sadly, they paid the
Sadly, they paid the early-adopter premium that is always in effect when new tech hits. AMD was able to charge a premium due to limited availability of the GTX 680. Now that the competitor’s card will be available, they will have to cut their prices to maintain market share.
Whooot, Hahha doin the happy
Whooot, Hahha doin the happy dance. This is why I never buy new tech when it comes out always wait for the price to drop and good bundles to come out. Now I can afford two of these bad boys.

I’ve seen this promotion
I’ve seen this promotion reported on a number of sites, so I do not doubt it’s veracity. However, I can find no mention of it on AMD’s site, nor can I seem to locate any cards at the reduced price. Anyone else having any luck?
Hm, Dirt Showdown hasn’t got
Hm, Dirt Showdown hasn’t got a specific release date afaik? They are advertising ‘May 2012’ Either dirt is getting released early or this won’t be available for awhile. I can’t see them giving away a game that hasnt been released yet?
