It's going to be a long wait for a price drop biggrin.gif
More luck with nvidias maxwell release or what pontiac mentioned about amd

I was able to grab a R9 270X at 199$ 2 months ago

Right now the cards are MORE expensive than a 760

so no, if you want a card right now get a 259$ GTX 760

I would say wait as the other cards have come down a bit. Seeing that you play BF4 I would say that you're fine with the 270x when mantle comes out as they showed at CES that Mantle increases performance with 45%.Don't quote me on that but I mean you can wait till end of the month and see what they say. I played the waiting game and it's a boring game because you end up waiting for everything.

If the x60gtx will use 192bits bus width.then th. r9 370(x) is a better bet
