    On the homepage under 'new products', 2 GFX cards were listed. An HD5850 and 5770. They were called AVP edition. Didn't get to see the picture of them though, and they have been pulled. I wonder when they are going to be 'officially' be released.

    Probably next week when the game is released as a digital copy will no doubt be included with each purchase.

    After playing the demo of AvP I'm glad got the Dirt 2 edition of the Radeon HD5770 and the full reviews are saying the game is pretty average.

    you get a download voucher for AVP
    and you dont get Dirt2, so you still only get 1 game

    I must admit when I saw the offer I thought you got a copy of the NEW AVP game. I am a little shocked that all you get is the old AVP game (which is dirt cheap on steam anyway) yet yu have to pay (in the case of the HD5870) £40 for the privilage.
