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.

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.

That's fine, I was just speaking generally.
