Awww man I bought this exact card yesterday from the egg cause the $30 MIR expired yesterday. And then they make it a shell shocker today for $10 cheaper. Just my luck.

By far the best value in budget gaming today. It slightly outperforms HD 7790. There has been no card with this level of performance at $80 recently.

I'm a bit confuse about the model they are selling. The power color website does not list the AXR7 260X 1GBD5-DH/OC but instead they list the AXR7 260X 1GBD5-DHE/OC

They also don't have a card without the plastic casing protector. I'm wondering if the model number on newegg is in error.

hmm i got in on the 7850 yesterday for $120 after tax - this would be $90ish after tax. Worth the difference?

The $30 difference is well worth it.

Keep the 7850; it's faster, has 2GB VRAM vs the 1GB on this one and it uses about the same amount of power as the 260X.

thanks - i think you mean it's worth paying the extra $30 for the 7850?

Great - I was actually worried about power consumption but I have a temporary 260X in my system now and it's doing fine.

Can I run 4 monitors with this?

Thought about getting GTX 750 for 4 monitors as well... it uses less power too, right? I have a new 400W Antec power supply [newegg.com] I want to use my video card with.

There's only a 15 watt difference on Max TDP between the two: approx 115W (260X) vs 130W (7850).

Here's a basic comparison between the two:
