Deal Details

Last Edited by DeividdoSama February 21, 2014 at 12:07 PM
This card was listed as part of this FP deal but may not have gotten enough exposure. It is now $5 less, still with the Silver Reward games.

SAPPHIRE 100366-2L Radeon R7 260X 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card [newegg.com]

$119.99 - $10 MIR [newegg.com] = $109.99 + 2 FREE Games + Free Shipping

For those who got in on the previous deal and want a second card, it is still the same rebate.

Another excellent deal is this R7 260 card:

MSI R7 260 1GD5 OC(V293) 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card [newegg.com]

$109.99 - $20 MIR [newegg.com] = $89.99 + Free Shipping

The R7 260's have not been widely available, so it is a great value, especially if you are trying to stay in the under-$100 price bracket. It runs 15% faster than the HD 7770 [tomshardware.com] it replaces and 11% slower than the R7 260X. It outperforms the GTX 650 Ti by more than 10% as well. It makes perfect sense at $90 but, unfortunately, comes with no games.

265 for sure...i know i am...way more bang per buck than this card...265 is a better value than a 270

Yep, the 265 is why these cards are now at these prices. AMD has set MSRP of the 260X at $120 going forward. So while I do think this is a good deal, a good value for the price, it is worth knowing this is "supposed" to be the going rate for a 260X from now on.

I've been sporadically refreshing a handful of sites' video card pages, waiting for the 265 to pop up at $150. I'll even go up to $180 for a heavily OC'ed version. I'm hoping I get lucky and the cards actually launch at MSRP. If they do, it shouldn't last long.

Some AMD cards at MSRP are bargains.

How do these cards compare to the HD7850? I need two for builds and none are on sale for these prices right now. Are these both slower?

Nevermind, even the Radeon R7 260X isn't as fast. Thought my search was done. End of January 7850 was $120 after rebate.

question for food for my thought. What's the relationship between these cards and the 4-digits (7850, 7950 etc)? Are they different class or different architecture or how do they relate with each other?

Friend wants to sell me his MSI 7850 2GB Twin Frozr for $125. Should I take that? Or get one of these? Or wait for the 265?

I won't be building for a few weeks.

7850 is faster than this. $125 is top dollar for a used one though.

7800 series is pitcairn, 7900 series is tahiti...they did make a 7870 LE on the tahiti process thats actually better than a reference 7950, but good luck finding one...prices are probably astronomical anyways

Would it be better to wait and try to get a 265 for $150?

I don't know anything about the 256. Maybe someone else can answer your question.

The architecture of the R7 and R9 200 series (2XX) cards hasn't changed from the previous generation. There is a 200 series card that approximately corresponds to each of the 4-digit 7000 series (7XXX) cards, but at a cheaper price than last-gen for equivalent or better power.

Basically, they just changed the names of the old cards, tweaked some frequencies/voltages, and made them cheaper.

Edit: Some of the 7000 series cards have True Audio and Mantle. Some of the 200 series cards have True Audio. All have Mantle.

If recent history is any indication, you won't be able to get a 265 for $150. If your friend is still gonna be offering the 7850 in a couple of weeks, I'd definitely wait. But if there's a possibility that his offer time-sensitive, I'd definitely buy that MSI. Even if the 265 comes out at $150 and there's supply for all (which I wouldn't put my money on), you'll still be able to get $125 back for the MSI.
