Nvidia Bundles: Free Indie Games With GTX 960, GTX 950 GPUs
The GPU war between Nvidia and AMD is on and it seems that Nvidia still has a few tricks to play in the market. We have seen some Nvidia bundles before and now these Nvidia bundles are for the GTX 960 and GTX 950 GPUs. With the 10 series GPUs out, Nvidia is trying to push out the previous gen GPUs as well.
You will able to take advantage of these Nvidia bundles if you purchase a GTX 960 or GTX 950 GPU from retailers like Newegg. The discounts are live as we speak and you can get a GTX 960 right now for just $175 and a GTX 950 for $150. At times, you can also get additional discounts on limited time offers.
With all the discounts included, one EVGA GTX 950 was going out for $105. This is a great deal even though these are previous generation cards. This is still more than half what you pay for a GTX 1060. Though I am not comparing their performance here, the price is worth looking into.
These Nvidia bundles are not limited to desktop GPUs. If you choose to buy a laptop that features any of these two GPU then these Nvidia bundles apply there as well. The games are sent to you through steam and the games in question are as follows:
These games are free with the purchase of the GPU.
The quesion here is: are these GPUs worth it even with the free games? I mean they are previous generation GPUs and latest generation GPUs are really cheap now. For the same price of the GTX 950, you could get an RX 470 and if you add a few more dollars to the price of the GTX 960 you could buy an RX 480. The RX 480 is a great mid-ranged GPU which is aimed for 1440p gaming and is also VR competible.
