r9 290 dilemma

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Currently in the middle of trying to do a build... of course the only parts that are making me go back and forth and 2nd guessing is the GPU and CPU.....to put it short i want this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202080, if i were to crossfire that would i need something like a i7 4770k or will a i5 4670k do the job fine? Thanks in advance thumb.gif

P.S i heard the bitcoin miners are causing the prices of GPUs to skyrocket by even $100 like this one....anyone know when it will go back down to the regular price?

Depends on the game, but a 4670K should be fine to power two 290s. And unfortunately no one knows when prices will return to normal - it pays to shop around though, as Newegg seems to be one of the biggest price gougers right now.
