So I just RMA'd my PSU. Decided to sell my 7950 for $400.

Just saw a $400 Asus r9 290 on amazon. Sold out already though. You could hold out and look for similar deals on that

Or you could get a gtx 770 and call it a day. Leave with a slightly stronger card and $80 total profit

Stuck between getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125462 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125462



I've looked up benchmark tests and the 770 seems to be the better card, but I'm assuming that doesn't account for all models, not to mention the fact that I'd assume the 280 is more expensive for a reason.

I'm assuming my 430w psu won't be up to par for this. .__.

The 770 is better. The 280X is only more expensive for the same reason you're able to sell your 7950 for $400: miners. A couple months ago the 280x could be had for $300. And what is your specific model of PSU?

buy the 280x because you don't want to support evil nvidia.

The 770 is slightly better for gaming, but the 280 is valuable because it can be used for coin mining more effectively. You can potentially earn $150 a month off of them.

The regular price of a 280x is actually supposed to be $299 but the demand for it has shot up through the roof which is why you can only find them for ~400 unless you can find a great deal.
