Thanks Juris for the info. No rush just yet as my GForce MSI N460GTX drive 2 screens OK for the moment, with AC running low settings, RRRE , F1 2013 but I have my concerns on Project Car when it comes out. Another card I have been looking at is the Radeon R7 265 at least you can use Crossfire if you add a second one later the 750 ti you cant add a second oneYou've probably picked the best time to buy in about 2 years, especially if you are looking for deals but do thread carefully. As you probably know the next gen cards are about to launch in the next few weeks or have just started to come out such as the R9 285 which itself isn't all that amazing but it destroys the 750ti and even the GTX760 from 1st reports.
Both AMD and Nvidia have failed to get down from 28nm to 22 or 20 in 2014 meaning gains for the new cards out this christmas will be smaller than anticipated but thats good news. It means there will be many deals going on with the last gen cards there will be bargains to be had as the last gen gets sold off.
As an example AMD just dropped their price on their top end card the 295x2 (which I have waiting to go into a new build) from $1500 to $1000 so we can expect similar percentage cuts from both AMD and Nvidia on the 280, 280x, 290, 290x and GTX 7 series.
When do you need it for and are you going to run triples (3gb to 4gb Vram preferable so the 285 wouldn't be great)
I wouldn't go for the R7 265 honestly. While the R7 is GCN like the R9 the R9 series architecture has a lot more to offer particularly with DX12 on the way as its likely to scale better to it and that will be huge in terms of performance boost. Its basically a Mantle clone with extremely low level API so we should see performance gains for no outlay for both AMD and Nvidia.Thanks Juris for the info.

If you can afford it, definitely get the r9 280 as that card will carry you over until ps5 comes out. Dead serious. You can max out ac too(excluding reflections and smoke generation)Thanks to you guys for the above posts
Just as well I have waited the price on a MSI AMD R9 280 3G GAMING Graphics Card 933 MHz 3072 MB has come down €235 to €184
So one last shout to you guys, What do you think? And this is coming just as AC is about to come out and then followed by PC.
