    What about you look at your local classified fields like craigslist? There's a bunch of use GPU's you can find. As long as the GPU is fairly recent and the seller is willing to provide some sort of proof of payment for the GPU then you should be fine even if the GPU ends up dying on you and you can RMA it back to the manufacturer.

    While being more cost effective they produce the same heat as the sun and wastes the same amount of power as the Chernobyl melt down.
    I typically don't recommend AMD to clientele unless they are very adamant about it.
    I don't mind power consumption. Also AMD will release it's Omega driver so expect a great fps boost. R9 390 destroys 970

    Yeah, but still. If you're the kind of render videos, or render hardcore, you should go with R9 390's 8 GB VRam. The power consumption is totally worth it.

    Get a GTX 970 for a little bit more expensive or buy it second hand, amazing value.
