You reckon with gut feeling a single 480 would cut it at 1440? My bro will likely disable AA but that's it everything else will prob be max settings

I use a single R9 290, water cooled and overclocked to 1050 MHz for 1440p gaming. Its decent for sure. I can't max out every setting and go 16x AA but I am very happy with the performance.

I do have a second R9 290 for CFX but as others have said, in the two years I've had that second card I've never used it. Every single game I've played has had worse performance with two cards compared to one.

Considering an RX480 is supposed to be more powerful than my R9 290, I think you would be pretty happy with it.

if a R9 Nano/390X performance offers you enough for 1440 then yes, if you max out setting on latest games then you could need to wait for thefull Polaris 10 GPU or buy a 1070 or 1080

The only time its a issue now days is on very old games or games from lazy programmers that didnt enable crossfire.

Or here is the 3rd option you can choose.
Pick up second hand 980ti since people are starting to sell them cheaper then the price of the 1070 or 2X 480

That's not really true. The Witcher 3, RotTR and Doom all have pretty poor crossfire support as well as several new games not supporting Crossfire/Multi GPu at all, which is the worst it's been in years. I'm planning to buy a pair of RX 480s because they look fun anyway but don't pretend that everything in the world of Crossfire/Multi GPU is great right now.

What's the difference between 480 and 480x? Like price, release date, performance etc?

if AMD hasnt changed their naming scheme

the RX 480X could be a 2560SP GPU at 1,266MHz+ with 4/8GB, 256 bus width,and maybe around 250usd, performance difference could be 10-15% depending on clocks but if the RX 480 performs around a R9 Nano /R9 390X OC/R9 Fury the R9 480X could be around a R9 Fury OC/R9 Fury X and releas date shoulnt be far form 480 date

RX 480 with 1,26GHz and 2304SP has 5.8TFlops, R9 380 with 1792SP and 970MHz has 3,46TFLops there is a 58.5% difference
RX 480X with 1.26GHz and 2560SP has 6,48TFlops, R9 380X with 2048SP and 970MHz has 3,97TFlops there is a 63.22% difference

Ah so is the 480/480x like 290/290x scenario? Or bigger difference?

AMD follows the same pattern for each GPU Family

HawaiiGrenada XT (R9 290x/390x), 512 Bit GDDR5 4/8GB 2816SP (GCN2) 1000-1050MHz, 64 ROPs
Hawaii/Grenada PRO (R9 290/390) 512 bit GDDR5 4/8GB 2560SP(GCN2) 947MHz-1000MHz, 64 ROPs

Tahiti XT (R9 280x) 384BIt GDDR5 3GB 2048SP(GCN1) 1000MHz, 32ROPs / Tonga XT (R9 380x), 256 bit GDDR5 4GB, 2048SP (GCN3) 970MHz 32 ROPs
Tahiti PRO (R9 280) 384 bit GDDR5 3GB 1792SP(GCN1) 950MHz, 32ROPsTonga PRO (R9 380), 256 bit GDDR5 2/4GB, 1792SP (GCN3) 970MHz, 32ROPs

Pitcairn XT / PRO 1280SP / 1024SP(GCN1) 256 bit 2/4GB GDDR5, 32 ROPs 900-1000MHz


Models with X have same quanitty of ROPs, bus width and VRAM, 256SP ,, in general performance difference is around 10% or less for around 50-100usd more
