Hey guys,

I didn't see this posted, so I thought I'd share. This matches the XFX FP Deal for the Radeon R9 280X about 10 days ago!
This item is also Shop Runner eligible.

I don't think it's a good idea to get into 280x at this point...

we're pretty close to the next gen.

Its the perfect reason to get a 280X. If your thinking about getting a 280(x) or 290 odds are your not the type of person who is going to go out and spend 300+ dollars or the newest stuff. Just because the new gen comes out doesn't make the old gen worthless.

280x is already 1 gen behind 290/290x ... the 290/290x are going to have the highest discounts when the 3xx hits.

we already saw 290 @ < $250..

I'm currently running an R7 260x. Thinking of upgrading to this... or maybe just waiting until the 3xx series is out.

Decisions, decisions....

I was kicking myself for not getting the last 280x deal, but now reading that people are expecting the 290's to drop I'm not sure if I should hop on this or wait a litlte longer. I'm still in the process of building my computer so I wanted to wait for a processor or GPU deal to trigger the rest of my purchases.

How much lower will the 290's drop after the next gen is released? When are the next gens coming out?

This version of 280x is the best cooling card next to the Asus matrix one; as far as I know,

If you aren't doing 1440p or 4k gaming, this card should be able to to high/max in almost all games in 1080p

Disagree

unless you're the early adopter type and/or dont mind paying a premium for the latest tech.

Iagree

best prices are about this time when new versions are around the corner. unless there's some sort of quantum leap in technology that will totally change the gpu landscape and render current tech useless.

This is comparable to the recent 280 deals, being it's about 15% more expensive for about 10-20% more performance, overclocking widens the gap.

I'd still suggest a 290/290x if going 4k.

TU from me.

sick card! I got the tri-x version for $199 around black friday, but would have prefered the vapor-x... just couldn't find it this cheap!

runs everything I throw at it (ultra settings at 1080p) beautifully.
