I guess 300-400. I wouldnt mind spending about 500 if the card is worth it. I bought my 4890 for about 330 i think about 3 or 4 years ago. Its been good to me but since Battlefield 3 i cant max games anymore.

Also is a Nvidia worth it for the PhysX alone?

Or should i stick with ATI?

If you believe in Allah and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

Most recent games are starting to not use PhysX anymore, and thats bad because it wasnt even used that much back when it was a factor. It's not really worth it to go Nvidia JUST for PhysX

The R9 290 is a fantastic card for $400. But I would wait for the cards with non-reference coolers to come out first. Unless you don't mind the noise and heat.
