  1. Have you considered waiting for the 300 series from AMD?
    I highly recommend that you do. If they aren't up up the mark the existing cards are doing to disappear.

    thanks but why should i wait for the 300 series? haha oddly enough, i haven't really heard much about the 300 series. only unbelievable things on youtube such as "THE 390X WILL BE THE BEST CARD ON THE MARKET AND THE BEST CARD TO EVER BE MADE" im sure its going to draw a ton of power just like the 290x and 280x and 270x and so on. the 980 draws half the power of the 290x and gives well over 30 extra frames. (sorry if all that sounded kind of one sided and rude)
  4. The 300 series COULD consume more power but they are also going to be stronger.
    What I am saying- if the 300 series prove not to be up to expectations the existing cards arent going to vanish.
    Also 980 in a $1000 build - impossibru.
    You need OS right?
