Yeah it's definitely a win for both of us, I couldn't keep flipping them my self though. I have a wife to deal with and she wasn't even that amused that I was selling my cards (even though it was a huge profit, she got over ruled on that one)

I need to figure out what card to get now..... I'd love to get one of those 290's that unlocks to a 290x but they are hit and miss supposedly. Still considering the 780ti ugh, well I got time to figure it out since this is my first ebay sale I won't have my money for awhile.

++ it won't cost me anything out of pocket since I just unloaded my 7950's for 600~ after ebay fees and shipping.


Also now that I have a waterloop i'm figuring I can get a 290x now since it is reference and get a cooling block for it for about the same price or a little less than a 780ti.... SO many options. I love bitcoin miners right now.

Well are you going to be playing at 4k resolutions. Because below that, its all 780Ti.

easy choice. go with a R9 290X or R9 290. at the same clocks R9 290 is 5- 7% slower than R9 290X. with watercooling and voltage overclocking you can get the R9 290 to 1200+ mhz. its the best value for money. you will save some money even after getting a waterblock. get a R9 290 which comes with BF4 free thumb.gif
