  1. in a month the new graphics card should be available globally .
    the R9 280X will be optimized and we will see benchmarks if it is relay worth it.
    graphic card prices should drop :)
  2. The Asus will handle it just fine and if it is substantially cheaper is the one I would get.

    Yes it is good but 1-3fps on a card in that performance group is not worth $50-60 more price.
