I'm expecting the R9 290 to be around 400-450. AMD blew it out of the park with the 290x and that price point. People can say what they want about the Titan but it was severely over priced. I don't care if it had no competition for months.

AMD could have said "Well hey, the Titan is 999 and is selling, we are on par in performance, lets price ours at ........... 750-850". They chose not to.

I applaud them for that.

You can actually get it for £388 On DABs using 'uni30' discount code. Incredible price for this beast.

Yet you need a bankers job to get this...

Does that mean you need a bankers job for a PS4 or Xbone?

Not that far in price difference.

You need to stop working minimum wage to get this.

People really buy this stuff. When I was making good money to buy something like this I didn't have the time. now... you know the story.

This! I am hoping that the eVGA 780 Classified drops to around $600 or so to compete. Better power consumption, heat levels, features, all around the same speed. Mantle is AMD's only wild card that temps me to go Red. But nVidia has the best current features + future features.
