OK, is it me or is this the first time that a game branded video card does not:

1) include the game
2) even come close to supporting most if not all the new features of the video card itself
3) you can have a card with 1/2 the performance and still play CoDBO at it's highest setting

Along with all the current performance issues, I'd be a little more upset if I purchased this card to play CODBO

PC hardware manufactures better start supporting game developers to support all this new hardware or they will be out of business very quickly.

At least Newegg is selling his card for the same price as the non CoD version.

It's just like the Jeep Wrangler BO edition. I don't think you get a free copy of the game with it. :bleh:

I've never ever received a game with a video card. Always seemed to come after I've made my purchase and usually the other company.

It's always been:
Here's my money, here's my rear end...chaching! Transaction transpired.
Have a good day! :|

I think that the game should come with the card. You're already paying an arm and a leg for the card...

Who paid who to put the game brand on the card? Activision or NVIDIA? Maybe its to make up for the fact that the PC version didn't have a ridiculous Prestige Edition like the consoles did, and try to snag fanboys who will buy anything that has the CoD logo on it. It has a $20 premium too, and its not even overclocked hahaha.

Maybe it should be called the 3DMark 11 Edition since it comes with a 3Dmark 11 key?

They are calling it the Black Ops edition because of the game's popularity.:)

I'm kinda surprised EVGA would put something out like this, they are usually.....cooler than that. This is kind of ridiculous. It's a popular game, yes, but is it even DX11? Or DX10? To put an empty game box and poster inside, brand it and sell it without the game itself is really bad. :(

hmm, i think they mean limited edition video card box branded with COD, not an actual game box.

if you scroll down you will see free inside, limited edition poster, it doesn't mention the box, since the box is not inside but outside
