MSI Plays Above the Rim, Bundles NBA 2K11 with Select Graphics Cards

The NBA playoffs are underway, and if you're a basketball fan, there's been plenty to keep you entertained. Last night, for example, the Boston Celtics again edged out the New York Knicks for a 2-0 series lead on their way to an 18th championship (that's right, we just predicted the Celtics will go all the way), the Orlando Magic Magic took revenge on the Atlanta Hawks and tied the series at 1-1, and Dallas took a 2-0 lead over Portland despite Dallas having previously only won two out of the 18 playoff games in which referee Danny Crawford was present. And that was just one night of playoffs action.


If that's the sort of thing that excites you, then you're a tech head who also loves sports, and in particular basketball. Lucky for you, when the playoffs end, you can still get your roundball fix courtesy of MSI, which inked an agreement with 2KSports to offer an exclusive bundle of NBA 2K11 with select graphics cards.


It doesn't matter if you roll AMD or Nvidia, and whether you're looking for a mid-range or high-end graphics card, chances are you'll find an applicable SKU. More details and eligible cards can be found here.

They make some great GPU's, but the game inclusion deal has never really seemed like much of a deal to me. I know I personally may have checked some out I got with components I have bought but never did more than look at the game.

Bonus... :) bundling games certainly makes these cards more attractive. Go Celtics! ♣

I'm not a sports fan so adding this game isn't a deal maker or breaker. But MSI is definitely on my short list for motherboard and video card for my next build. I really like the new twin frozr III cooling solution.

I got the Witcher with an MSi 8800 back in the day... epic game, can't wait for 2! I'll buy a bundle only if it's an awesome game and the card's from a vendor I trust.

For me any  of the MSI graphic cards either mid-range or upper end  that are bundled with the game already would certainly be on my short -list to consider.Having the game included may be enough for those  to consider getting a higher -end  performing GPU.Either playing the game or not &  gifting it away.. Because a game like this  would be worth playing for someone and you would have the better card and a really nice gift.for someone else.Cool
