\MSI R9 280X Gaming 3G - MSI's First AMD Gaming Card

Hardwarezone: Following last week's AMD R9 280X launch and HWZ , we take MSI's R9 280X graphics card for a spin. The MSI R9 280X Gaming 3G card is the first AMD-based product from the company’s Gaming series. (AMD Radeon R9 280X, MSI, MSI Twin Frozr, PC, Tech) 8.5/10

This isn't a big enough upgrade from my 670 GTX. Bring on the 290X or lower the price of the 780 GTX. I need to upgrade for 1440p :(

Id wait it out till next year if you can man nvidia is releasing there new stuff so it will be nice to compare at that stage

Initially my plan was to not upgrade and live off the PS4 but now that nextgen consoles can't even do 1080p consistently I'm starting to feel the upgrade itch again.

I'm the same, I've got the upgrade itch.

I've got 4k gaming dreams, and a couple of R9 290x cards would probably cope. I wont have the screen for year or 2, so I should really wait but the itch is hard to ignore :)

@ Bolts

In the same position. Just going to sit tight with the PC until early next year and see how the PS4 is doing and decide then.
