    The R9 280 is a better choice. Cost a tad less but has a lot more stream processors. I am expected the 270x prices to fall pretty quickly over the next few weeks. Either get a 280 or wait a few weeks for pricing adjustments.

    Yup, what Sandy said, if he does plan on sticking to the 270x, you don't need the 4GB vram as the 270x can't utilize it with its performance.
    It would be a waste of money. I would just stick to the 2GB version or move up to a 280 or 280x for a little bit more money.

    Grab a 280! I recently bought an R9 280 off NCIX for $199.99 CDN and absolutely love it!

    The R9-280X is a great card in every respect. Price to performance is very good and it will be worth it to find one of those instead.

    not all games use PhysX but if it is important to the main games you play then yeah the 280x may not be the best choice. Still a great performer

    It's out, but is a little underwhelming. 280X is a good choice that sells for a little less than team green.

    Look at these open box sales.

    I'm personally waiting for the 285x which should release in a week or two. That should be a fully unlocked tonga GPU with the 3 gb ram and 384 bit interface. If what the 285 accomplished is any indication, the 285x might perform close to par with a 290. Hard to say but I'm pretty excited about it atm. And thanksgiving sales are just around the corner!

    One other note about the physx. I played a ton of borderlands 2 and the physx was nice in that game compared to amd not supporting that. On the other hand, I would always get save point lag spikes when I had SLI enabled. One card, no problems but two, every save point would give me a little lag spike. (Microstutter is the buzz word) One nice thing about Crossfire is I never had any lag spikes between crossfire or a single card. I wonder if that could've had something to do with physx because in other games I'd play, I can't say i noticed anything with SLI on?
