My System Specs

Default R9 290 Pricing

Seems to have normalized.

Interesting, the 290X seems to still be a little high. I wonder if it will stay this way if BC prices go through the roof again or have enough suckers learned their lesson yet?

Edit: My bad. Wasn't the MSRP supposed to be 400-450 bucks?

Yeah, according to Sky's chart it was promoted as being MSRP of $399 so even with the low dollar it shouldn't be more than $450.

$500+ still includes a substantial mining premium.

Got my Unlockable XFX 290 for 399.99 back in Nov before prices went nutso.

When i still see cards above 450 i just shake my head.

we should have seen price cuts already by now i wouldn't have mind picking up a 2nd 290 or a 290x for crossfire @ sub 400 ish prices.

It's a disgusting situation. Fortunately, I can wait. Or rather, I have to wait. But yeah...
