As you can see http://www.overclock.net/t/1432331/vc-amd-radeon-r9-290x-and-r9-290-european-pricing-unveiled

the R9 290x is 650€, thats not cheap lol, if you are up to price wars that aint cheap at all, thats why i am up to buy now NVIDIA 780, while will be similar preformance, and nvidia is slowly droping prices.

 

I dont know why would amd again start with such crazy price, while mybe cheaper then GTX 780 but still not enugh, cuz AMD Graphic is not mature enugh yet, well its getting there, but if a gamer can decide by

NVIDIA and AMD graphic for same preformance and same price GUESS what he will take, and NVIDIA. There is several reasons. But lately i was on AMD cuz of Preformance/Dollar, and i was satsfied with RADEONS, but looks like again NVIDIA is going to fight prices, long time didnt.

 

GTX770 is already the price of R9 280x.

 

So somone suggest me, buy a GTX 780 or wait for 290x ? 

Cuz as you can see GTX 780 here is already 500€. 

Thing is i still want to support to AMD but not with such prices, cuz i support those who doesnt take to much and is fair to their custumers.

How about waiting for the actual retail listings before asking those questions?

I think the 290 will beat the gtx780 for about the same price.

Remember I am assuming that the 290x will be faster than the 780. Why would you expect a company to price a superior product under the competition's price? First off, the supply won't be there at the beginning, and you have early adopters that will pay a premium. So keep it close, but to price it under or at a 780's price would leave a lot money on the table.

Of course, that only works if the card is faster.

LOL...that has got to be typo, the US site doesn't list a price.  Probably just an oversight.  Good find though...LOL

Contradictory information: Click $591.62 seems to be about right.

Except the idiot who says "let's leave our stock cooler barely adequate even though it severely hampers performance so third party board partners can have some fun" needs to be fired, and his name and photograph listed here so we know who to blame.
