I doubt they are even making the 7970's anymore. The 280x's are cheaper as well.

There almost identical cards and should should get the same speeds. There's no reason to go such great lengths to get a 7970.

Not much of a comparison. GPU's don't have a long lifespan mining. Hopefully you at least get one that a miner didn't owned. So far I've had a 85% failure rate on my cards after 2 years of mining.

As i said i dont belive in used cars, they might be used 100% all of time like mining now. GPU paste fries in 2 months

The 2nd hand lifespan used to be longer, But I guess due to the recent mining operation the card that you get might most probably be used for mining and the lifespan is like 40%?

R9 280 (Not R9 280x) should be the best choice, I was told that if it come with the new chips, the power consumptions would be at lowest...

I don't think so, I heard they are putting new chip on R9 280 and should reduce the power usage.. we just have to wait for now..

No sorry the X editions are better because they have more shader cores unlocked. More shaders cores = efficient mining. The shaders cores are whats used for computing the hash. To use the older card designators a 280 is a Pro and a 280x is an XT.

I never trust the spec, the best way to know is to wait for the card itself and try it out...

Why is buying Radeon 280x equal to throw away your money? You need to understand more about it before you comment....
