Newegg has the MSI Radeon 5600XT for only $229.99 right now after rebate. This seems like a decent deal for a 1080p/1440p card, if you don't want to hit the used market.

The reviews are questionably high. They're almost all 5/5 stars, which makes me a tad suspicious. :whistle: Nevertheless, the price is good.

$259.99 - $10.00 instant rebate - $20 MIR = $229.99

I'm pretty tempted, but I don't believe the game bundle is worth much. The 5700 stock is gone, 5700XT's have gone up in price from the summer sales of $360-380.
Do you guys think Shadowlands could sell in FS/FT for $20?

Does AMD require Shadowlands activation using a 5000 series gpu? Is there any workaround for that?

Knowing AMD you will need a 5000 series GPU, I tried to use my RX580 to activate a game that was in a 5000 series bundle for Godfall, was glad it didn't work as it would have had me install the epic store for it.

MSI and ASRock both "seed" reviews after a product launch by offering an additional rebate if you provide a screenshot of your review.

Well, at least it's not their overpriced castrated 12Gbps models - those should have been priced at $250 at launch.

TALK ABOUT A FUCKING CLUSTER OF A LAUNCH - YOU STILL HAVE TO DO YOUR RESEARCH 12 MONTHS LATER, just to make sure :rolleyes:

Decent deal, but I expect the MSRP of this to drop to $200 after big navi full-range drops (and they will drop 5700 XT to $300). the 5800 XT having a 50% performance gap versus 6800 16gb (plus no RT) means a massive price drop on RDNA1; the 6gb version will have to be even cheaper.

I knew ASRock did this but didn't know about MSI, thanks. I was tempted to buy the card but I'm going to wait until it's at $200.

I bought one. Just missing a graphics card for my build. If I land a 6800xt in a few weeks Ill move this to my HTPC.

$260
-$10 code
-10% RetailMeNot cashback
-5% Paypal Chase Freedom cashback
-$20 MIR
Shadowlands + Godfall (was planning on buying Shadowlands anyway, so $40 there)

~$150 for me, good deal for those that will use the bundle
