[WFFC] Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Officially Costs €499.99, €519.99 For Battlefield 4 Bundle – Available Tomorrow 10/24 - Page 19

I can't believe I'm happy about a GPU of this caliber that's priced under $600. Have Nvidia and AMD lost their minds? I think the most expensive single GPU solution should be $400. It's out of hand, but clearly, I'm wrong since these will surely be sold out just like Titan for $1000 and the GTX 690 and ect.....

When I got back into PC gaming November 2011, the cost of 8 gigs of DDR3 was $30 and, the high end AMD 6970 was $400. WTH happened?

If it ends up being only a tad over 500€ in here like they say, then I will be having hard time justifying holding onto my 7950.

Well, I now know what GPU's are going in my daughters build.............a pair of slightly used GTX 670's.wink.gif

If a Titan falls from a shelf at Newegg and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Plus i doubt they'll price it under 600 dollars, maybe even 650.



WHERE IS THE GUY CLAIMING THAT THE 290X WOULD NOT COST 550$, WHERE IS HE ?!

I don't think you have followed titans 4k performance have you? & rape is not a viable judge of performance increase & is actually quite offensive to read people say. Though I have been predicting 290x would shine over titan in 4k for months... That being said 3x 4k looks terrible in most games right now & maybe 1 out of 1000 gamers will be on 4k let alone triple 4k... If 570$ GPU is hard to swallow for these people than what will they think about 10,000 worth of monitors?

2 or 3 titans powers 4k just fine & I haven't had time to actually read post release reviews so I can't really comment on these things as I try to not make stuff up unlike some people here.

Nice. I'll be grabbing at least one of these when I upgrade the rig after the new year
