    Pretty clever. Price will be interesting to see.

    Maybe this is AMD's revenge for MSI talking badly about their graphics cards before?
    I wonder if this pack will offer any real discount of advantages over buying things separately.

    If they price this thing right it could be a great idea.

    It should be a little cheap, else why bundle. It will also lock customers into owning MSI products for a generation or so, building brand loyalty.

    Hopefully this will enable people to get a GPU at a reasonable price. Which I guess is the rationale behind this. Unless some people buy them all, then sell the parts one by one at a premium....

    Isn't this just going to be unsold inventory on retailer shelves, AMD can't sell enough these GPU's for a reason :\

    Only in 2017-2018 could something like this ever be marketable. Normally this would just hike up the price when you could effortlessly just pick out the parts yourself, but considering the cost of things like GPUs, this sadly ends up being a "good deal".

    Considering RAM prices are still crazy high, this is actually legitimately a little annoying. Seems like a real missed opportunity. This bundle would likely sell better with at least 16GB.

    Neither AMD nor MSI make RAM sticks so that should be no surprise here.

    They made so much that I've never seen any for sale, much less in my hands.

    PC building the past couple of years has not been ideal. GPU shortages, GPU pricing and ram pricing gone crazy.

    Free lube should be mailed with every PC build.

    Good idea, Miners will not but Mobo and CPU just to get GPU. All components at less than MSRP. Miner inflated GPU pricing a non issue.

    So... are they going to get sued because of the silicone lottery? :D

    On a more serious note, I too would have thought to put in some RAM would really be a good idea, then again you're close to buying a DIY kit of a whole system anyway with merely the PSU, drives, case, peripherals and a monitor missing.
    But I agree, those are GPUs that are NOT going to miners, so that's always a good thing!

    bundle is up on amazon from one seller who is assuredly price gouging. at a reasonable price, however, i like this idea - but wont personally buy MSI due to the GPP nonsense.

    is that when you propose to a trophy wife & try to get her to sign a prenup?
