Comes with a free download of Batman Arkam City.
FYI Arkam City is awesome. Also on that note, when you get it downloaded don't enable DX11 until they patch it, it's glitched and causes stuttering on even the most high end systems.

I'm interested to see if you're able to play BF3 on Ultra settings without issues. Mine gets the FPS, but stutters after a few minutes of gameplay. EVGA told me it sounded like a driver-crash and to wait for new drivers/patches.

I didn't think the 560ti could even handle ultra in BF3 with reasonable stable fps.

Yeah people seem to have that misconception. On 1680x1050 resolution it averages 44-45 fps on Ultra, minimum being 29-30fps. However, in multiplayer I get graphical freezes after 4-5 minutes of playing where the GPU load % drops to 0%. Single-player is fine. EVGA told me this was a driver crash and all I can do is wait. Have yet to try it on the latest BF3 update though.
