I remember being much cheaper by over $100 for the 270x, 280x, and 290x respectively.

So I were to get a 270x, I would be much better off getting a Nvidia GTX 760?

Interestingly enough, Snuckie has vanished since AMD's cards are higher priced now

Maybe he sold off his AMD card and is going back to nVidia?

It's a real shame because AMD used to be great for budget builders. Now they are irrelevant.

I remember him saying he was probably going to pick up an nVidia card depending on how much g-sync monitors ended up costing.

Sure I sold my AMD card, but I don't see why that has anything to do with my posting frequency.

Well, assuming your PC is used primarily for gaming, you might not be on as much when between cards. Seems like a reasonable hypothesis anyway.
