Not only has Hell frozen over, but it seems like Duke is getting farmed out more than a beer sponsor on NASCAR race day with all the Duke Nukem Forever cross advertising. The latest tie-in comes with graphics card maker EVGA, which is releasing the Duke’s Fully Loaded Package. The entire package will set you back $244.99 plus free shipping if you pre-order, but you get a ton of stuff. Included is Limited Edition EVGA GeForce GTX 560 graphics card, full version of Duke Nukem Forever on PC, Duke Nukem art book, Limited Edition Duke Nukem mouse pad and a custom Duke Nukem Radioactive Belt buckle. Considering the GeForce GTX 560 card itself retails for just over $200, this is a pretty good deal if you were planning on going the PC route for the game.
