Higher-end GeForce cards are bundled with The Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight, and now there are some freebies for Radeons. Select Radeon R9-series graphics cards selling at Newegg include copies of DiRT Rally and Grand Theft Auto V. You can browse the list of available options right here.
As far as I can tell, just about everything from the R9 270 on up gets in on the rally action. Most of the R9 290 and 290X options also come with GTA V, though some of them do not, and a few of the listings are completely devoid of bundled extras. As one might expect, open-box products and cards sold through third-party vendors don't partake in the deal, either.
Bargain-hunters should check out this Sapphire card, which is the only 280X to include both games. It's currently selling for $209.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate. If you want FreeSync support, Sapphire's R9 290 Tri-X OC is the cheapest Hawaii-based card with both titles. That card is $249.99 after a similar $20 rebate.
Somewhat surprisingly, Newegg's Radeon R9 295 X2s are only bundled with DiRT Rally. You'd think GTA V would be included with the $600+ flagships. Then again, Nvidia's ultra-high-end Titans are sold completely on their own.
