R9 M280X with Pentium G870 benchmarks at High Quality settings

In terms of cost, pricing clearly is a genuine issue here and the price of R9 M280X is simply ridiculous. This combination between R9 M280X and Intel Pentium G870 @ 3.10GHz has less than 15% bottleneck in many games and can cause minor FPS loss. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 M280X can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
