Yea, you'll be fine. Can you check in CPU-Z what TDB it is showing?

In the first link it is an R9 290 and in the second link an R9 290X. The R9 290 came out later. The R9 290X is slightly better (according to benchmarks only 3-5 FPS in BF4) than the R9 290, but defenitely not worth the extra costs.

Great thanks Jirachi i am VERY tempted to buy x2 R9 290 now this one below if you don't think it worth spending the extra on the other 290x cards...do you have the 290x?

I agree. 290 is better than the 290x value wise. biggrin.gif

I think X2 Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 OC WindForce 4096MB will look great slotted into my Gigabyte Z87x motherboard thumb.gif

Any non-reference card is a great choice, but the Sapphire -and Gigabyte cards outperform the others by a bit thumb.gif

I do have two R9 290's.

My qnix qx2710 just came in. Got it from bigclothcraft, paid for perfect pixel ($329.99) and that is exactly what I got. zero dead pixels, absolutely no light bleed (was surprised), and oc's to a max of 108Hz (although I run it at 100Hz because I prefer more "even like" numbers lol)

Not too bad.

I used EVGA pixel clock overclocking program. Does anybody suggest anything else?

Idle my rig uses about 80W and pull about 90W from the wall. In Battllefield 4 the peak is only 450W from the wall.
