jesus, and I thoughr $200 for my secondhand R9 290 was a good a deal (plus $90 for copper VRM heatspreaders, NZXT AIO cooling bracket, and an AMD AIO cooler). To be fair, she runs like a boss, and has served me spectacularly since last October (and a hundred hours of Witcher 2, supersampled, among countless others).
But at $200 more? - if I had not already gone through all of that labor with the R9, I would be all up in this deal...
Your card will serve fine with most games. Some do give/get benefits from nVidia, I think Batman and pCARS (should avoid it anyway) are two that really kill ATi, but their cards have suffered with poor drivers for years and years. I read it's been better since the last couple of updates, one game that really used to suffer was rFactor2 but now it runs well.
