So how does this work? Do I have to buy from a specific vendor or just send my check with a purchase?

You should receive a redeemable coupon with your purchase.

..I still remember when they launched the original bundle. The day after I bought a Sapphire Flexx 7950.

Really tempting I would like to take a dive into AMD but owned a 7950 and the drivers where just as bad as I remember from previous cards! Bought a 660Ti (DOH) instead, I would like a 770 but is way to much, ideally a 780 should have been that price but hell... Though I would like to take a trip in to a 290 card, better performance than a 770 and about the same price, but drivers still worry me.

I haven't had any major problems with AMD drivers for years.

But still sounds like you have HAD problems though only small? Nvidia for the past 5 years never had an issue... Install and use, but I format my HDD at least 1-2 times a year any way!

But Nvidia is so over priced at the moment, but I like peace of mind?

Not really, I literally can't even remember the last time I had a problem with them. They're definitely no worse than Nvidia drivers, and I've used modern cards from both companies. Honestly, a lot of the complaints you see are as much PEBKAC related as anything. That's not to say nobody has issues, but they're heavily overblown by some.

I suggest you read the nvidia driver section from time to time, people do have issues.

Well yeah it will happen it's just for me in the last 5 years nothing! Maybe the people having problems are altering files, or changing windows files?

I don't see what the problems you can have? Download, install over previous, I never delete, play games? I format at least 1-2 a year! So what can go wrong?

I could say the same about my experience with AMD/ATI GPU's.
