Got the refund for a faulty MSI R9 280x and wanted get some opinions. I will say it right off the bat, I like amd cards, but I keep hearing EVGA makes some awesome Nvidea ones. I was looking at the R9 290 and the X versions. I also hear that the new 780ti is supposed to be pretty good as well. I am willing to spend about $650 before tax. I also looked back at the 280x but they still have the asus sold out. What would you guys recommend? Or should I just wait till black friday/cyber monday?

780ti's rumored to be $700 though so you'll probably have to either up your price range a bit or get another 290x.

Might be wrong though, we'll know sometime tomorrow.

Wait until the holidays. By then, the next-gen consoles will be out, the 780 Ti will be out, non-reference models of the 780 Ti and the 290(X) will be out, and there will be sales. Basically, a lot of confusion should be cleared up by then.

dont buy the msi r9 280x. Terrible coil whine, thats why I got a refund. Fist RMA of any product I have bought from newegg.

On a side note, how would a 3 way crossfire work? I know my mobo supports 3 way crossfire and 3 way sli, but whats the benefit?
