    As a real budget card for the average gamer i can see this working and i see a lot of casual pc gamers upgrading come the new year.
    Going to check some benches on this compared to the 650Ti as i have too look at something for my mothers pc so she can have better fun with photo shop and all those other scrap book things that's killing on board.

    But realy i can't wait for Kaveri. but this means whole new setup for me going from intel back to amd again

    Even a HD7730 would be fine, especially if the version of Photoshop she uses supports OpenCL. Otherwise, a budget Geforce card (GT640 or better) should be fine because it'll enable support for CUDA plugins.

    I would wait about six months before sinking money into Kaveri if you're still on the fence. OpenCL adoption needs to ramp up and more testing with Mantle and TrueAudio will be needed to see if there's any benefit for a switchover. I'm going to wait until some dual graphics benchies are done to see if its worth it for me. If it isn't, I'll just pick up a second-hand FX six-core and a R9 270X next year.
