I guess I would have some money left after buying rx480 and then in a year I could get Vega.:
If overclocked rx480 doesn't beat my unlocked fury tri-x then I'll keep it.
I dont see why anyone would sell their fury for a RX480, but I guess if you were crossfiring the 480s, sure.
Overclock? so far the reports about the 480 is that its an amazing overclocker, going from stock 1266 upwards to 1500 and even a 1600 reported.
But will that OC make it better than a fury? no idea, will have to wait for benches like the rest of use.
I actually already sold/returned my Fury X and am planning to just coast off a 480 CF till Vega. so... =D
returned for a completely different reason; was getting the infamous display corruption problem with every low-end game I booted, Clockblocker wasnt always helping 100% of the time. rather not have to deal with a workaround while waiting on a solution that may not come. google-fu showed me that this has been an issue since Fury X launch and the only driver to address this issue so far has been 16.6.1 and that only came out a week ago, and it didnt help. rather opt out of the trouble Now instead of later.

A 480 is rated at being in between R9 390 and R9 390X performance. but at a MUCH lower TDP, I'm really excited to try them out in crossfire.
Was a bit scared of trying to CF my previous 390 on my Corsair AX850, had it going for a bit but was getting scared because everywhere it recommends at least 1050W to CF 390s and 1100+ for 390X.
So with the loowwww power consumption of 480s I should be golden, probably overkill with my 850W, haha.
I'm just hoping it doesnt end up being like the Pascal fiasco; stock shortage and founder's edition crap, making AIB card prices shoot way above MSRP.
also hoping theres no "Limit 1 per customer" during checkout.
