On a side note, if you get a 7970 (or 7970ghz), you'll get free games, as well.
And since 280x is just a rebrand of the 7970...


This. The 7970 will also support Mantle. Looking back, I should have gotten a 7970, but no use crying over spilled milk.


Mantle is just bulls*** and won't be bringing significant performance over Nvidia equivalents. Stop worrying about it.


Wat? O_o

$100 more than the 280X and not even better.

Wait and go 880.

Also, in regards to 280x vs 7970, 280x seems to do better than 7970GHz in tessellation heavy testing.

Yeah it doesn't seem like a total rebrand.

I'm debating this. I was making this topic with carts open and everything doing research, but I may defer to just getting a new heatsink and taking my 2500K to the sky, then getting an 870 or something.

Interesting to see opinions, though, and may help others to make the purchase.

personally i think i'm going to get crossfire 280x's (probably the sapphire toxic) because the 4gb 770s are still too expensive (and 256bit) and the toxic looks awesome

If the TC is asking about the GTX 770 or R9 280X, they don't want to spend beyond the $330 price range, asking him to upgrade to a higher level card isn't helping.

Everybody has a budget, asking him to go over budget isn't helping with the decision.

Personally I recommend the R9 280X.

More VRAM, comparable performance for less money.

Get the ASUS model which is $309

Sapphire TOXIC is a noisy piece of junk. I'd look into Gigabyte right now.
