450 on overclockers.co.uk biggrin.gif

I believe you can get it as low as 430 if you buy the overclockers edition. IMO just spend the extra 20 on the branded version.

And my honest opinion: With a 1920x1080 screen a 290x is going to be overkill. If you're planning on upgrading the monitor then go for it.

EDIT: Or if you have a 120hz monitor and want to crank up framerates for it.
