    Features - QOTW: How much would you pay for a Radeon R9 290X?

    Rumours suggest the new Radeon could set you back $729. Is that in line with your budget?

    Pleas do not bring the titan in to pricing, it's stupidly overpriced and should not be brought in to comparison to other cards in the value stakes.

    I would not pay more than £450 for 290x, by all accounts it's similar performance to a 780 and so should be priced less than a 780. AMD should learn from their past mistake that they can't compete with Nvidia in extreme pricing for GPU's. Look at the 7990 the fastest card available, AMD couldn't even sell it at £800, this titan and 690 territory, a few week later it's under £500 lol.

    I'm sick of these ever increasing rip-off prices every year for little extra performance.

    It's a bit of an odd question this, considering all we have to go on is rumours and the like. Not sure you can really judge the value of a card until it's actually been tested by a load of people.

    I wouldn't pay more than 20 quid for anything with a leaf blower bolted to it!

    Not buying with that cooler, maybe I'll wait for sapphire or msi or xfx versions.

    Re: Features - QOTW: How much would you pay for a Radeon R9 290X?

    Above £400 and the price/performance ratio takes a nose dive so that would be my upper limit. Realistically though I'd never pay above £300 for a new card.

    Depending in real world performance in games I would say in region of £350 to £420 , no more then that.

    Re: Features - QOTW: How much would you pay for a Radeon R9 290X?

    I'd hope for around £400, but knowing graphics rip-off pricing, I'm expecting nearer £500. In any case, I'll be hanging around for AIB partner coolers - that stock one has to be one of the ugliest things I've ever seen.

    The most I would pay is £399 inc VAT.

    Anything over £300 is OTT for any graphics card IMHO. OTH,if the R9 290X is faster than the equivalent Nvidia cards then it is still "better" value.

    Yep and it might be a different colour card too.

    The most I would pay for any graphics card is the £400 mark, but as I'm currently happy with my 7970 performance I won't be buying a 290X.

    The real question is not how much I would pay, all be it no more than £450, but how much we want a competition to win one of them
