Yep, it's settled. That is, until Maxwell takes back the crown for Nvidia... and so on, and so forth.

Wow, hats off to AMD for finally coming through after a year and a half of letting nVidia charge whatever the hell they please. I knew they were ripping us off but until now I had no idea how badly. I have a feeling though that nVidia are still determined NOT to price competitively, given their three-game offer that's coming up on 10/28 in lieu of any reasonable price drop. I actually was thinking about grabbing the 770, but I have more than enough Steam games in my backlog as it is, so I'll probably just get the 290x instead. Sorry nVidia, you got greedy.
