There are 4 different revisions of that board, If he orders it he should be getting the last one (Rev 4.0) which should have all those issues solved.

Rev 1.0

Rev 1.1

Rev 1.2

Rev 3.0

Rev 4.0

You can clearly see that they have changed the heatsinks in the last revision (maybe thats the fix? Just aesthetic changes?), would be cool if someone can comfirm it.
in google i have seen on rev 1.0,1.1,3.0

Shadowplay... I have no idea, I've never even looked into it. Video recording with little impact I think? A cracked Bandicam works fine for me, the acceleration it gets from CUDA and the high quality compression means there's a negligible impact on frame rate. As for PhysX, it has to be coded into games to be made use of, it ads extra "physics" related effects, smoke and accurate physics for bullet shell casings, stuff like that. It's not worth enabling if you're having trouble reaching 60fps or whatever your goal is. (Most monitors can do at least 72Hz).

As for Gsync, that one is a big deal. Read up on it here: http://www.blurbusters.com/gsync/preview/

Gsync looks to be a really coool feature. But the price is pretty high.

If I add a fan on the side pannel, will it fix it?

these type of overheating are more a issue of the vrm itself or the bios.than the simple fact of the heat

Nvidia has its Gameworks libraries which includes faceworks, waterworks, fireworks, hairworks, cloth simulation,flex and so many other physX features as well as technologies like HBAO+ and TXAA temporal antialiasing. They're implemented in Unreal Engine 4 so many developers will be able to take advantage of them. AMD does have Mantle API and Tressfx(hair simulation) and both Cryengine and Frostbyte 3 are implementing mantle. So far the advantages of mantle have only been in performance and tressfx has only been implemented in Tomb Raider. DirectX 12 supposedly will offer similar low level API but we should most definitely see some very noticeable visual improvements and features. Performance advantages can go either way although AMD cards do offer better price to performance ratio. Multi GPU setup is preferable as games are starting to become very demanding as we're getting into real "Next-Gen". Watch Dogs for example requires a GTX 780 and an i7 4770K to run at Ultra settings and The Witcher 3 although still too far for its release humbles the GTX 780ti with only 35-45 FPS at maximum detail. Most definitely upcoming games like Assasin's Creed Unity and Batman Arkham Knight which are both developed exclusively for next gen will be equally demanding too. A single high end GPU for now will be appropriate and give the opportunity for a second one down the road. A good price for an AMD R9 290 or 290X is a good option but so is a GTX 780 or 780ti (a good condition used one).

If you don't mind to buy the used card then go with 290 or 290x. I just sold my 290x on Craigslist last week for $370.

Okay thanks for your help. But as I said earlier, and the r9 290 is more then I can afford and I don't like buying used hardware.
