How? The 290x at $310 would be the best card in the $300-$400 bracket. You are confusing price tiers with performance tiers. Including the 4gb 290x in this list would have an impact on the 970 and 390 category, no impact on the 390x since it is in a different price tier.

Is this another one of those review site conspiracies, left out the 290x and AMD doesn't look bad with the 390x pricing?

cause how can a grossly overpriced card be the best in a given price range?

Bingo!

Why are so many harping on about the 290X? It's EOL and no longer sold so why would they include the last remaining 290(X)'s in the price category. It would be akin to adding the 780Ti in the list because it can still be bought new in certain places.

By having only other grossly overpriced cards available in said price range?

what's the point of having the best price/performance card in the overpriced range then?

it's no longer sold as 290X, it's been rebranded as 390X with ridiculous power draw and is sold for $100 more.
There are 2 cards worth buying ATM if you want a very fast gaming rig, and those are 290X and 980Ti. That is all. 970 isn't too bad but 290X is better and costs about the same. 980 - only if a killer deal from second hand. 390X - I wrote my opinion above. Fury - $550 is way too much compared to how it performs, they're asking almost twice the price of a 290X . Fury X - if you want a CLC then yes, but the performance isn't that great as on 980Ti.

Because "overpriced" is an opinion not some factual bit of data. Price/performance charts are always (and rightly so) based off of MSRP and how much performance that card provides. In the $400-$500 MSRP category the reviewer felt that the 390x offered the best performance per dollar. Sale prices, retail prices and EOL slashed prices can not be factored in because it changes too often. If the 390x is competitive at it's price point then it isn't really overpriced, it may be priced higher than you think it should be but that doesn't really matter much to anyone but yourself. The 390x launched at about $100 less than the 290x launch price and it has 8gb of vram instead of 4gb, doesn't seem that bad to me.

launching a rebranded card 2 years later isn't bad for you.
