MSI R9 290X £388.28 @ Dabs


Use code: uni30 for £30 discount.

EDIT: If you are planning on purchasing BF4 and want the card immediately. Check out the BF4 version for £439.99 CCL online - http://www.cclonline.com/product/126021/CGAX-R929X8BF4/Graphics-Cards/Club-3D-R9-290X-Battlefield-4-Special-Edition/VGA1922/

I want add some recommendations for anyone looking to upgrade their graphics cards any time soon.You really have some good options:

-Get a R9 290X for £388, performance speaks for itself.

-Get a 7950 overclocked non reference for £174-190. This should over clock well and perform better than 7970. (scan.co.uk, 173.99 today only, may come up again sometime soon)

-Get a Sapphire R9 280X Toxic (best non reference model, very close to gtx 780 performance) for £253 (dabs.com)

-Wait for R9 290, details and possible stock available next friday. This card is truly the best one for value given its performance. Look at the benchmark graphs here (the card name is blurred out, http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18551534 It matches and beats Titan in some of the benchmarks. (Price is £350 +/- £20 according to OCUK staff).

-Wait and see the prices on Nvidia prices once GTX 780ti is released.

It all depends on your budget, performance preference, brand preference and whether you are willing to wait and/or overclock your cards, which you should be!

The new AMD cards are very good given its price. Just needs a non reference cooler. Will have that in a month or two. You can get a R9 290X for £388-449. Meanwhile GTX 780 is around 470-580. Even better, the R9 290 seems to be the best card once over clocked in terms of value. It should be £350 +/- £20.
