Should I wait for new-gen or just buy a new graphics card?

My PC is already built and the only thing missing is a video card, I am wondering if I should wait for AMDs' "Tonga XT" or just get the R9 280X. .

  1. Are you willing to wait till September? Do you care a lot about Power consumption/bit mining?

    If you answered no to both, buy one now

    If not, wait
  2. If you're patient enough, yes should wait.
    If you're NOT patient enough, then yes you should buy the R9 280X then sell it after once the Tonga XT cards are out.
  3. Whoah damn, this is a hard choice. . I really want a new GPU but I want less power consumption. .
  4. buy a R9 270x
    and if tonga xt cards are about to release
    sell your r9 270x

    The price is going to drop a lot though, and nVdia's Maxwell is coming September, so Tonga shouldn't be much longer either
