So, I need some help for a graphics card

My brother gave me one of his 7970's, because his machine became FUBAR, and he told me that when he wanted to sell them, I'd have to look for a new card. That being said, I really don't know what to do. I know I don't want to pick a current gen card, but I don't know what the price will be for the next gen AMD cards. So, throw some suggestions out here. Any help would be appreciated.


tl;dr I need a new card. Current gen or wait?

He's selling his cards now. Should've made that a bit clearer.

Depends on how much you want to spend. The R9 280X is a 7970 GHz edition for 299. The 270X would also be a good choice for 199. The new cards should be out soon

Not really sure I have much an actual budget. Suggest me cards, whether they be NVIDIA or AMD.

I just bought a Sapphire 7970 Dual-X and love it. Getting great performance in BF4 beta nad BF3 runs flawlessly. Haven't went above 62* as well. I highly recommend that card. Comes with 3 free games too!
