If it was this cheap when I built my computer maybe I could justify spending that much, but I already have a 7970 that I don't feel like going through the process of selling and I can't get a refund at this point, but that's still a really good deal.

man do people actually pay 629 for a graphics card? You could buy X1 or PS4 with that.

And neither one would look nearly as nice. If you've been following the games for those systems, the games that run at 1080p are locked at 30fps, and the ones that run at 720p are locked at 60fps. The 7990 runs circles around them, performance-wise. It can do 1440p at well over 60 fps, or even run multiple monitors.

And have far lower graphical performance.

Plus, some of us will, and have decent jobs to spend towards tech/gaming.

My monitor is 2560x1440 27" that I only had to spend ~$400 on (it's an overclocked Catleap running at 120hz)...neither of the new systems can even run games at that res well, if at all.

So $400-500 for a new system or $100-200 or so more to upgrade to a much better performing GPU than either system has? To me, since I already own a nice monitor and computer, it makes more sense for the performance to get a nice GPU, and maybe a console in a year or two when they drop in price like I did with the PS3, which I mainly use as a blu-ray player anyways.

There's no compelling reason outside of a few exclusives that I'd ever want to have a console for, mainly single player story. And I'd be able to play at a friends (or even rent) for a weekend to beat most of those games, if I really cared.

Some people want top quality and some want console peasantry. To each their own.
