It's somewhere in the middle between a 760 and 770/280x price wise...not to sure on the performance against a 760 to be honest maybe someone else can weigh in, but there's something to be said about more vram (3GB vs 2GB) along with a wider bus (384bit vs 256bit) in a CF/SLI setup. It will probably give you more longevity, especially if you decide to upgrade to a higher resolution (you never know). Just something to consider.

You've got the MSI, XFX and PowerColor all going for $300 right now on newegg and Sapphire's on sale at $270:

MSI R9 280 GAMING

XFX Black Edition Double D R9 280

PowerColor TurboDuo AXR9 280

SAPPHIRE DUAL-X Radeon R9 280

Asus and Gigabyte are $350+ so not really worth it as you can get a 280x of the afromentioned brands or a 770 for the same money.
The sapphire one isn't that bad.
270$
Close to what they should cost for once.

Wow, there really are a ton of options in the $250-$350 range.

I have another question for you guys concerning sli/crossfire.

When using dual 2GB cards, does a system utilize the full 4GB of Vram or is it somehow locked or throttled at 2?

And how does that compare to say, a single card with 4GB?

It's 2 GB because it's shared between the two cards: identical data in both cards for increased memory processing power.

It's a computer!

Yeah I've seen some of the scores and benchmarks for the 760sli, that's why I'm so interested. For $500 you get just as much or more power than pretty much any single GPU that's out right now.

No SSD?

An SSD is probably the most important part of a system as far as "responsiveness" is concerned. You can have a fast CPU, fast RAM, fast GPU, but things will still take a while to load on a mechanical drive.

With SSD prices so low, I would highly recommend getting an SSD, even a small-ish 128GB one, to serve as your boot drive.
