Duke Nukem Forever gets special PC graphics card bundle

Duke Nukem Forever, after 15 years, has finally gone gold and will ship to stores on June 14 in the US. That's still hard to believe but it's really happening. However if you are getting the PC version of the long awaited first person shooter you might also be looking for a PC graphics card update. If that's the case then EVGA has a deal for you with their limited edition graphics card bundle with some exclusive Duke Nukem stuff.

The graphics card itself is a GeForce GTX 560 based product but you will also get a copy of the PC version, a limited edition Duke Nukem Forever art book, a Duke Nukem Forever mousepad and a Duke Nukem “Radioactive” belt buckle. You can pre-order the special bundle now for $249.99. EVGA is also offering a free upgrade to a 10 year warranty if you purchase the special edtion graphics card in May and June. The PC system requirements for Duke Nukem Forever have already been released.

The game itself, originally developed by 3D Realms but completed by Gearbox Software and others, is perhaps the longest game in development without actually being released. It was re-introduced to gamers in September 2010 after several years of no real development updates and in less than three weeks it should be installed on PC hard drives in the US. A demo for Duke Nukem Forever is due for release on June 3 for people who pre-ordered the game or people who purchased Gearbox's Borderlands Game of the Year Edition.

Update: This offer is also available in Europe.

Just dropped in a 570 which for a few extra $ is worth it over a 560

funny thing is... Duke Nukem Forever will not require a monster PC. you can tell by the low system requirements. (so people really don't even need to upgrade their video cards unless they are ancient-ish)

ill bet my PC will run it fairly well and my CPU is AMD Athlon 3600+ (2.0ghz overclocked to 2.4Ghz) and a Radeon 5670 512MB card. sure, i probably won't be able to run it on max settings but the graphics i am sure will look good enough and like i was saying Duke Nukem Forever is not really about graphics are it's more about the character and the comedy. so my graphics will look 'good enough' with my current setup because at the end of the day as long as my FPS is decent enough ill be happy

Why don't they do this for the games that actually need such a card.... Still, great tribute to "The King".

yeah, and I though there would be some mention of using actual benefits of such card in this particular version of the game.

I sincerely hope so 'Crip. I hope they don't just trade on nostalgia!

Yeah, that's the way i am going into it (with the whole comedy/duke character perspective on it). because if you go into it expecting to relive your 'old days' in the 1990's, it's not going to happen. lol

You'd obviously also be purchasing it for the other bits and pieces you get such as Mousepad and belt buckle etc..

I really hope it lives up to at least SOME of the hype...I loved the original

Well like i say... shooters that established there name in 'the old days' cannot live up to that level up hype/nostalgia in out heads. BUT... i think if you go into Duke Nukem Forever just expecting a basic shooter but looking at the game more for the comedy/the duke character then i think we will enjoy it

Very true I think one of the reasons I loved these games was that downloading them from a BBS took hours so you were more inclined to give them a second, 3rd and 4th chance if they sucked lol

I need a new video card for one of my systems. Kill two birds with one stone with the game and the card. Ordering now.
I wouldn't go for the standard 560. Go for the 560 Ti if you can.

You can max it out with HD 4770 or even lower card, why get this?
