Hey what do you guys think? Should i get the R9 280X version or the 7970 GHz version? I know that the 7970 GHz edition comes with 3 free games so do you think that's worth the extra $60, or do you think the R9 280X still has a noticeable edge?

They would be pretty equal in performance, the games worth the money only if you were going to get them anyway.

equal performance, its the same chip so overclocking is all up to luck anyway. the asus cards are crazy good though, they overclock awesome. the games will only be worth it it you want them, otherwise save the money and get the newer card.

I'd go the 280X, just picked up the Asus CU TOP model, great card, better than the 7970 with the improved design
