I was looking at the 970 just before you posted, i can't believe that kind of performance at less than 100$ more of my budget, with that incredible low power draw (which is important to me, on my country we are heavily penalized for high power consumption, since we have blackouts every day)

It's tempting... Let's see what happens on december.

I have just seen a 285 review, which is basically a 280 with more features and same price.

For what i have seen, the 285 beats the 760 on every front, including power draw, and the nvidia response was to lower the price about 30$.

I haven't bought nvidia for years, while they have great drivers and performance, power use and price hasn't been competitive.

I will keep looking to see if the prices change or a new board gets introduced by december. I am not happy the 285 is still a 2GB card, while my 22" monitor isn't even 1980p so it shouldn't matter much.

I'm on the market for a GPU this december. My requirements are: less than 250$, low power consumption, good compatibility with Z77 chipset (intel i5 3570k), no overclocking needed, low noise, best performance/price ratio and of course better performance than my current GPU (msi twin 7850 2GB).

So far i have seen either a r9 280 or gtx 760.
Anyone would like to offer some advice?

HELP!!!! I'm being held prisoner in /usr/games/lib!

Working...
