When is the best time to buy new gpu?

What would be the best time to buy new graphics card during year 2015. Thinking about buying one but i have no hurry and want to get a good card. I should probably wait for 390x... but are there any more releases that i should wait for? Living in europe if that matters.

  1. R9 290X and GTX 980ti for this year, but if you keep waiting for the "next best thing" you'll never get a GPU. :P

    Lol yeah... but like i said, i want to buy it this year. I bought used 290x last year just before their prices bottomed... so it made me a little cautious. Dont want to buy a card and then next week see price dropped by 100€ when something new comes out. Money is important to me but i want good graphics also... and i would probably buy Oculus VR or similar.

    The requirements for Oculus VR is atually pretty low:

    Even a GTX 970 is a great card but usually Price/Performance AMD may be the way to go. Theres no "official" benchmarks for the R9 390X but from what ive seen it looks like that might be the GPU to wait for, should be out soon (June I believe).

    Thanks for the info.
  5. Last I heard, AMD and Nvidia will be releasing new stuff during Computex and E3, both shows are mid June time so I'd hold off and see what develops if you're in no hurry.
    Actual hardware release times will vary a bit according to exactly which country you live in but the new stuff should be available no later than July here in Eurozone.
    Why the change? The R9 290X is hardly what I would call slow...
  6. Np!
