I ended up with 1 free game after chatting with newegg's CSR. Actually, rep repeated few times to me that there will be no free games, and only after I asked for a supervisor, I was offered a voucher for 1 free game.
The 670 has about the same performance cost ratio as a 7770 (and is significantly better at $260). A gamer buying an entry level 7770 will be getting the same bang for their buck as someone buying a 670. I think the generalization made by you and KO3bIPb is unreasonable and not applicable to this deal.
Sounds like you don't understand what P/P ratio is. It does not show which card is more powerful or better suited for a gamer... It measures "bang for a buck".
When I gave you comparison of 670 for $260 vs. 680 for $390 and their respectful performance comparison, I used P/P ratio - just without saying the words. And it is a well known fact, the latest models of gfx are always priced disproportionally higher than performance increase they offer.
Looking at GTX 670 and 680: performance is increased by 10%-15%, but price increase is 50%. If P/P ratio stayed the same for 680, it should have been priced $260+15%= $299. But instead it is $390! Hope this helps...
