Price is not an issue here
Wich one should i get for performance
PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 390 8gb
Or Rx 480 8gb
Go with the RX 480, it is the better GPU
they perform about the same. rx480 uses less power and amd seems to lean on the rx series of card when it comes to driver updates. The older cards are perfectly functional with the new drivers but stuff like wattman doesn't seem to work on some r9 series cards.
They will trade blows. I would get the Rx 480 since its not a nuclear reactor in terms of heat and the 480 is GCN 4 vs. GCN 2 with the R9 390.
