Yeah, so maybe this isn't the greatest deal in the history of the world, but it's still good news that Radeon R9 290 cards are now selling at Newegg for something approaching the initial suggested price of $399.99.
In fact, that may be the best deal currently available on a high-end graphics card.
That said, you could also get this MSI GeForce GTX 780 for $499.99, mail in the $30 rebate card, and get a free bundled game (Daylight), too. The GTX 780 was ever-so-slightly faster than the R9 290 in our review, although your mileage may vary.
Finally, we have a Newegg exclusive: this Crucial M500 480GB mSATA SSD is $10 off, bringing the price down to $229.99, with the promo code TR10APRW3. This drive would be ideal for use in a laptop, Intel NUC, or motherboard with an mSATA slot.
