All right, so maybe you've seen the new Nvidia sponsored PhysX trailer for Gearbox Software's upcoming first-person shooter, Borderlands 2? Well, if that trailer got you all hot, bothered, jealous and angry that your PC isn't capable of handling those kind of physics, Nvidia is offering an olive branch in the form of giving Borderlands 2 away for free with the purchase of the GeForce GTX 660 Ti.
As stated on the official EVGA website...
Handsome Jack has overtaken Pandora, and the diabolical dictator is in need of a serious ass-kicking. Get the weapon to make it happen—the game-changing new EVGA GEFORCE GTX 660 Ti or above. Best of all, you can enjoy all the carnage in full NVIDIA PhysX, Surround and 3D Vision glory. Save the planet. Save some money. Buy the card today, and get Borderlands 2 FREE.
Well it doesn't get anymore simple than that. The only drawback is that you have to buy a brand new video card to get the game for free. Now, you can get Borderlands 2 for free with any Geforce GTX 6xx brand but once you get over the 67x series it gets into my-wallet-is-crying-for-it-to-stop territory.
To make things somewhat convenient for consumers, it's possible to get the cheapest version of the GTX 6xx brand for only $299.99, and that's the GTX 660 Ti. And just so you have an idea of the scale for how expensive the Nvidia 6xx series can get, the Geforce GTX 690 Hydro Copper Signature runs at the very low, low, low price of $1,199.99. Yeah, I'm not even going to start talking about how many Twinkies-covered suit jackets I could get for that amount.
Even though the 660 Ti is only $299.99 (and that's still pretty expensive), the card sports a base 915mhz GPU clock speed, 2GB of dedicated VRAM at 6ghz with a max digital resolution of 2560x1600. Hardcore gaming for real.
Anyway, if you were completely and entirely impressed with the Borderlands 2 PhysX trailer then you can learn more about getting the upcoming first-person shooter RPG for free with the purchase of a EVGA GTX card by visiting the Official Website.
