Meanwhile well also quickly point out that the 280X Toxic ends up being faster than a stock GTX 770 by several percent for $50 less. But thats a tricky comparison at best since were now comparing different cooler types (blower versus open air), a significant difference in power consumption, and it doesnt take into account any of the customized GTX 770 cards. But its at least food for thought.

If you are in the market for a new high performance AMD graphics card then we have to put the Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Edition at the top of the list. It is not only faster than any other R9 280X we have tested to date, but it is actually very competitively priced at £269.99 inc vat. The GTX780 might still be faster, but the price difference of £230+ means that many gamers will invest the difference into other hardware components and upgrades.
