Hi everyone!
I can buy a 280x TOXIC for 150-160 € or an unlockable msi 290 for 170-180 €.
What do you advice me to buy keeping in mind that here in italy electricity cost is around 0.20 €/kwH? What about if we don't consider electricity cost?

    I'm sure you can OC the 280x to 290 speeds, so saving the 30Euro will already put you ahead of the game slightly, IMO.

    Almost all public miners are 280-optimized, few algos are optimized for 290
    If you can get W0lf's binaries 290 is worth the extra IF (big IF) it will run out-of-case with GOOD cooling

    since this is the eth forum, it's relevant to mention that Hawaii works just fine for eth, my 390 gets ~30.5MH vs 24-26 for 280x (depends on memory type/timings)
