My budget is way too little to go for a 380x... - it's almost double the price that I will pay for a Toxic
also, the 280X first came out as a flagship card, the 7970... and AMD will still support it for the next 5+ years, unlike Nvidia's 700 series. (AMD cards released in that period are now as good as or better than those Nvidia cards, so 280X has longer lifespan.)
And if I am to compare the R9 280x Toxic vs R9 280x Matrix? What would you suggest? Because I can get a Matrix for a bit more then the Toxic. I read that is a great card, the Matrix vesrion, if it works. But looks like the card decides for itself when to work or not to work. Any suggestions? It is a limited offer...
Toxic is faster & cooler than the matrix mate , certainly wouldn't pay extra for it.
And can you recommend an alternative to the Toxic? Something similar to its power and also its cost?
The toxic is the fastest 280x there is so nothing really comparable+ I don't know what prices you're looking at. In all honesty between all the models of the 280x available I doubt you will see more than 5-10fps difference max between any of them
I can get a used Toxic for around $135, which is pretty much my budget limit. Didn't find anything that good in that price range, so this is why I'm asking, I want to know this is the best offer I will get .
That's a good price mate - I doubt you'll get anything to touch it for the same money !
My thoughts exactly, but I wanted some other opinions, too
