Ewww just looked up the prices for those cards on Newegg. Cheapest one is $470! Not worth it to me. Maybe when BF3 and Skyrim come out, but not just for Crysis 2.

Anyway, here is HAWX 2 for $8.74

How about a 570GTX?

Still should get the job done at lower resolutions. 1920 and below.

The GTX 570 is a great card.

Another option that is perhaps the best bang for the buck would be two GTX 560s (non-Ti) in SLI. These will get you a nice increase in performance over the GTX 580 in games that do well with SLI, and they can be had for less than $400. If you get bit by the upgrade bug next year, you can sell one and use the other for GPU-based PhysX tasks if that is important to you.

Wow nice find!

And those 570 cards look enticing. Still gonna wait and see how well BF3 and Skyrim will perform on those.

I was going to buy from Origin's sale, get that whole Battlefield 2 bundle downloaded and installed for 5 bucks. Instead, it refused to let me log on with the password combo I thought I had, so I clicked here to "refresh my password".

It says "emailing you the link now".

1 hour later my email arrives, I click on the link to reset my password...whoops! The link has expired! So I click on the link that says "generate another email".......ok, 1 hour later, same thing

I finally gave up and didn't buy anything. Origin FAIL. :P

Yeah I hear you, keeping up with all your passwords is a pain in the ass. What I do is keep a small 4.5"X3.25" composition notebook for all of my passwords. It has proven itself invaluable! I have had it a couple of years and it is already 8 pages long full of login names and passwords. Paypal, newegg, hotmail, gmail, photobucket, imageshack, 3 steam accounts, playstation network account, direct 2 drive, origin, impulse, my bank accounts, credit cards, health insurance accounts, tanga account, router password, a whole bunch of game logins (TDU2, Res evil 5, UTIII, gamespy, Vegas 1 and 2), blah blah blah. If my house is burning down, I would probably want to grab this little notebook!

Origin has a deal that when you pre-order BF3, you get a copy of mass effect 2 with the pre-order. A good deal as mass effect 2 is quite good.

It's actually showing up as $34.99 for me for the download edition (which I guess is just a Steam code since it's Steamworks), so even better.

Also, Direct2Drive has a few games on sale right now: Dragon Age 2 for $12, Dawn of War 2 Retribution for $15, The Witcher 2 for $30, Two Worlds 2 for $20, and Fable 3 for $25.

Inrteresting. I checked his link this morning and the game listed at $39.99. And now it's $34.99. I bet this is as low as you'll find it until the Steam Holiday sales.

Sweet. Thanks for that. I was thinking about buying this despite the mediocre reviews because I enjoyed the demo, and being under $10 pushes me over the edge.

Painkiller 2 is 50% off at Beamdog games. I've never heard of Beamdog, but hopefully they don't have horribly restrictive DRM.

http://www.beamdog.com/products/painkiller-res

Painkiller: Black is $1.75 http://www.beamdog.com/products/painkiller-black

In edit: Probably easier if I just let you guys peruse the list for yourselves.

Kicking my own butt. Just bought GTR Evolution from Stream, but when I did a google search to look for reviews, I saw an ad on the right side of the screen stating it was on sale on Amazon for $7. I got so wrapped up in the reviews, that I went back to Steam and purchased it for compete package for $20 (a two pack; the base GTR was $17), forgetting that I could get it from Amazon. DOH!

Anyone have any thoughts on what is the most 'Simmy' racing game out there?
