Which will be a better upgrade if I'm going from GTX 560? Is it worth the wait for the 800 series or I can just go for a R9 290?
More aboutamd series gtx 800 series
r9 series from me. the 800 series will be expensive as all hell when it comes for only slightly better performance. if you want to have the absolute best regardless of price then get an r9 and watercool it otherwise get an aftermarket r9
