Actually, a couple are already available in Europe, they should be available in the US shortly I suppose.

The Sapphire Nitro will probably come in at $230, which is a quality good looking design.

I expect the 4GB versions to be closer to $200 than $300, probably most falling within the $220 to $250 price range. AMD needs them to be priced a decent amount lower than GTX 1060s or they won't sell.

I expect RX 480s to be in stock in the next week or two probably. AIB partners will be rolling out their custom cards soon.

I know waiting sucks, but prices will always trend downward with time. Look to buy parts on sale, open box, or refurbished to stretch each dollar out as much as possible. When I bought my i7-930, it was retailing for around $330 but Microcenter had it on sale for about $216. Only catch was you had to buy it in store. The ASUS Sabertooth X58 retailed for $190 and I got it open box for $93. I didn't really have a budget when I was making those upgrades, but saving around $211 definitely felt good.

Edit: I read that MSI's custom cards are expected to hit the market around mid August. I would expect other AIB partners to release theirs around the same time.
