I am going to be doing an upgrade with my income tax after it comes in,i am already planning on wait for Zen to get one of those,but my total upgrade budget is only $1150.

 

Now what i will be using it for is mainly gaming,the games i have been playing the most right now is GTA 5 and Forza Horizon 3,I am also planning on picking up The Witcher 3,Dirt Rally and Doom on the next month i get lucky and have 3 paychecks.

 

My Monitor is a HP LP2480zx with a resolution of 1920x1200 and i would like to be able to play the listed games at high to max settings,and get no drops below 60fps,i can stand drops down to 45fps but no lower,i also run 2 other monitors,but not in eyefinity.

 

The thing i am worried about is from the sounds of it,it could be as late as june before Vega comes out, and that all that come out is there high end card,which will be out of my budget.

 

Do you guys think i should stick it out and wait for Vega,or just pick up a RX480 for now and pick up a Vega next year?
