Why in the hell are the r9 cards up in price again? This is some major bs. So much for getting a second one.

The whole cyber currency crap. Its a shame really. Aside from the horrid reference coolers they are awesome cards for their original MSRPs.

I was going to get one, but because of the prices I settled for different upgrades. Gonna wait the 290 out some more. It's really annoying though and I still don't understand who these "Min-la-le-lu-lei-lou's... are.

I really like my 290, pretty glad I bought it when I did. Best price/performance ever.

I love mine, loved both of them. Had a friend ask and I said sure. And next thing you know, BAM. Prices thru the ass.
