With the extra $500 I would upgrade to Crossfire R9-290X's or R9-290's. PhysX isn't necessary, it's just extra eyecandy, that I honestly don't really care about.

290x in crossfire would be a $800 upgrade from the 280x's, not a $500 upgrade (they costs $700+). Also, $800 is not worth say an extra 15-20fps when you would be getting outrageous frame-rates with crossfire 280x's.

No one knows exactly what they are going to cost, but the rumors are GTX 780 priced, which is not >$700.

EDIT: I have no idea why it double quoted that, Tom's just glitched I guess lol
