Yeah I guess you could go with craigslist as long as you met in public, but it's kind of a pain. I'd rather just buy the card I want. I've never understood how people are swayed to buy a certain card because of the games it comes with.


lol at meeting someone on craigslist to trade a card with a code. Yea or just use Ebay and sell the codes for $30-$40 each, or trade it for something you do want

Or just be a derp and don't see how $90-$120 back off your purchase is worthwhile.

It doesn't matter if I get a little money back if I bought a card that wasn't my first choice. Sorry, but I want _exactly_ the hardware I want.

So you purposely want inferior hardware? I mean, looking at your sig you don't have top tier hardware, so apparently your first choice was to get lesser quality parts.

Except he is buying the GTX 770, which if he waited till the 28, he could get the card and 3 free games.

Well, I'm on worker's compensation with a ruined spine and 24/7 chronic pain, so it's pretty much the best hardware I can get on my limited income. And my point stands...if I want a specific part, it doesn't matter what fluff they bundle with it or not, or with alternative parts or not. I want that part.
