You mean the R9 290X?


Checking Newegg, all the 290X's are priced at $699 and above. That's just stupidly overpriced. You're better off getting a 780ti at that point.

There was once a time when trolling didnt mean trolling. It meant 'criticism'. Somewhere along the line people stopped being able to take it.

A lot of the current mid-high end i7s are just chips that didn't pass the Xeon binning tests and have their QPI & ECC pins removed.

Don't buy AMD GPUs, they are overpriced to hell.


No, they are overvalued thanks to crypto miners.

NVIDIA cards are "overpriced to hell".


AMD GPUs are priced higher than what they are worth, I think that's called overpriced.

There is a huge difference between criticism and trolling, sir. In your quest for a profound signature, you took a wrong turn at Albuquerque.


I've been on the Internet since before the "world wide web" even showed up on the scene, and I cannot recall trolling ever being defined as merely criticism. Definitely two different things.

I'd even say flaming is more directly related to criticism than trolling.

TC,

might want to check out logicalincrements.com also. IT can kinda help match components and give you an idea of what youll get with your budget.

Make sure your not getting ripped off if you buy a prebuilt. Some prebuilts are fairly priced you wont spend a lot more then building it yourself. But some custom builders have a huge mark up in price.
