Enter to win a Radeon HD 7770 CrossFire team and game bundle

Well, this should be fun. In celebration of the Never Settle game bundle deal, the folks at AMD offered us some Radeon video cards and games to give away to TR readers. Naturally, we jumped at the chance. We’ll have several sets of cards and games to give away over the next few weeks, if all goes as planned.

Up first is a pair of Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB cards made by HIS. They look like so:


Would you call a pair of these HIS and hers?

They’re intended to be paired up in a CrossFire team to deliver even higher performance, but you’re welcome to separate them and install ’em in a couple of needy PCs whose integrated graphics just aren’t cutting it, too. We’ll never tell.

Whoever wins these two cards will also get the same games he would if he had purchased them at a participating reseller:

  • A free copy of Far Cry 3.
  • A free copy of Hitman: Absolution.
  • A 20%-off coupon for Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

I believe the cards and games are worth about $390, all told.

To enter to win, all you have to do is sign up using the form below and correctly answer one easy question. The info you need is contained in our review of the Radeon HD 7770. You might also consider “liking” us on Facebook or following us on Twitter—but that part is totally optional and only for the smartest and best-looking readers.

We do have a few requirements for entry, which are spelled out in breathtakingly original prose below.

    Dashbarren i hope it is my 1st Tr win also:)

    I Love AMD/ATI cards for HTPC/Gaming rigs. I just feel AMD/ATI based graphics cards give you a noticeably more vivid video output compared to Nvidia cards.

    I have noticed it for years even now my with my 560 ti vs my old hd4330 notebook card that was in my dell hd zino, and my HD6570 and HD7750 cards i currently own. Note they all are running MAD VR in MPC-HC plus optimized for both the red and green team as per some MadVr install guides.

    But it was also noticeable in VLC and Windows Media player and the stock MPC-HC.
    I tested the systems side by side over HDMI on my panasonic VT-30 55″ with identical tv settings Since i wanted to have the best HTPC picture on my VT30 possible i would have moved my gaming tower into the same room with it or bought a low power Nvidia card instead of AMD/ati if NV gave me a better picture on my tv i named AMIEE . Yes i named my Plasma TV kinda like HAL from a 2001 A Space Odyssey.

    Anyone else have the same opinion or notice that???

      (scratches chin) Not sure if he forgot the substitution cipher on AMIEE or if he just took things to the next level.

      • 7 years ago

      Dude.. I entered and I’m supposedly an anti-AMD fanboy!

      If I win I promise to complain a whole lot about.. something.
      Actually: If I really do win I will write up a review of these GPUs under Linux using the newest Catalyst drivers. I’ve been using Nvidia for a long time not really because the hardware is any better, but because the driver support is much better [according to everything that I’ve read and seen online].

      If Catalyst turns out to be good, then I’d be happy to jump over to a high-end 8-series card in next year’s system build.

      • Krogoth

      Care to explain the anti-AMD persona?

      If it relates to the GPUs, then you need to stop living in 1999-early 2000s. Nvidia has just as many “stupid, stupid” issues with drivers as their AMD counterparts. They tend to affect bleeding edge platforms anyway.

      CPUs is kinda of a mixed bag. Their desktop chips are just server-grade components that end-up being hamfisted into the wrong market. The same market now values power consumption more than raw CPU performance.

    I have been looking to buy two AMD HD7850s for Christmas but I have not seen the Fry Cry\Hitman deal anywhere at this point. Just see the single Fry Cry 3 bundle. Would love it if someone has any idea where to pick up a 2x 7850 bundle with Hitman and Far Cry 3.

    • dashbarron
    • 7 years ago

    I hope this will be my first TR win!

    If so, I’ll donate to charity…I’ll send an old card to SSK. Or maybe Meadows.

        COOL STORY BRO. I WOULDN’T BUY AN ATI CARD EITHER. AMD ON THE OTHER HAND…

          A rose by any other name has drivers just as ugly. Call them however you like.

    Upgrades for me and my EyeFinity habit and my family gets my hand-me-downs. Think of all the wonderful upgrading that will occur if I win! It’s like a trickle-down economy of upgrading!

    • Srsly_Bro
    • 7 years ago

    Doesn’t each card come with a copy of the free games? Or is it just one free game offer per person? I bought a 7950, and contemplating buying another funded by selling off the free games. If the restriction is one offer per person per game then I’ll stick with just one.

    • mnemonick

        Funny that the only time I’ve heard a Quebecer refer to themselves as a Canadian is when they complain about not being eligible for contests.

          • adisor19
          • 7 years ago

          Since Harper took power, very few Quebecers view themselves as Canadians. We feel dirty being associated with Harper and his right wing, pro abortion, pro religion, anti environemnt, pro US policies, and the list goes on.

          Take a look at the last federal election map to see how Quebec voted.

          Adi

            • Sargent Duck
            • 7 years ago

            wow…just wow. Harper is now more center than the Liberals. He has, ever since he’s taken office, always said he’s not touching the debate over abortion with a ten-foot pole and true to his word, he hasn’t. Pro religion? How so? He hasn’t said mum about religion. Obama has said more religious remarks than Harper. Pro US? Yes…that’s why he’s negotiated free trade with Asia and Europe and has just returned from a trade mission from India. If you bothered to follow politics, you’d know that he’s moving Canada AWAY from the US.

            And with that, I fully expect this post to be deleted as we’re going right down the path to R&P and no place for a front page topic.

            • MadManOriginal
            • 7 years ago

            It’s just Canadian politics…you guys will apologize to each other over a frosty mug of Maple Syrup Beer with moose jerky for munchies while watching ice hockey together.

            • Sargent Duck
            • 7 years ago

            True…except the hockey part. *shakes fist at the NHL*

            • 7 years ago

            if only that were true. sadly, canadians reputation as being nice is no longer deserved. you’d get much better hospitality in a great many places. our politics is plenty mean as well.

            At the risk of enraging the R&P gods, what’s wrong with “pro abortion”?
