With the recent launch of both the NVIDIA GTX 1060 and the AMD RX 490 this kind of seems like a bad idea as both cards are priced for only $50 more however there is a severe supply problem with them.
Seems everywhere people are buying them causing some retailers to mark up both cards way past what they are worth.
Both amazon and newegg have the AMD RX 490 marked up at $400!
And the GTX 1060 is near impossible to find, the only one I found is here marked up like crazy of course!
Yeah cant afford that
So I think I will throw in the towel and get last generations AMD card and hope for the best
Here is the model I am considering
I did see this card but its got some people saying that XFX didnt do a good job on it:
This one looks better but its $30 more
and I dont know if spending more than $200 on last generations card is a good idea... probably not so i want to keep this around $200
the $209.99 is just right methinks but I know nothing of the brand
I do still want a nice GPU for my birthday this year, with only a month away and only a small budget to consider I have to go what with I can afford.
My birthday is in September but the way things look I wont be able to get any of the new GPU's anytime soon with supply and demand being so crazy right now.
If I can find the other cards at the right price then yes I will get them, but doesnt look like that will be the case and I will be lucky to purchase them on doomsday.
