A good 280x would be best i think, Unless you are planning to Watercool or you can't wait until Jan for non-ref 290's then i'd go for a 280x such as the DCU II or a Vapor-X

But if you can wait until January then get a R9 290.

But with the recent news that non-ref 290/x's are delayed until January i'm just trying to get peoples opinions on the 280x's.

i own two gigabyte r9 280x's and i love them so far. they tear threw every game i throw tat them on high to ultra. i play all the big games from bf 4 to any other new game you can think of, and i run them all at the highest settings possible. for the price in my opinion was a great buy. i only had 600 dollars or so to spend give or take a few bucks cant role with the big dogs on all the big hitting gpu's. so for 600 dollars for two of the 280x's over one 290x or even a 780 for that matter i got two 280's. from all the things i read on them before i bought them two 280x's in crossfire were beating out the 780 and the 290x single card set up on those. long story short im very happy with these two 280x's, im a pure gamer im all about the game and getting the best gaming experience i can but keeping it in my budget range. so i give the r9 280x two thumbs up thumb.gifthumb.gif and a third if i had one... no complaints at all.

Well tbh i'd expect Crossfire 280x's to be able to stomp a 780 or 290x, I usually run single cards due to AMD's back run with stuttering but since it seems they have fixed that i'm back looking at a Crossfire set-up again.


just undecided atm between 280x's and 290's. 2 x DCU II 280x's = $820 and 2 x Ref 290's = $1k

just undecided atm between 280x's and 290's. 2 x DCU II 280x's = $820 and 2 x Ref 290's = $1k

just a strange question where are you getting the prices for your asus gpus at 820 for the 280's i know every country seems to have differnet prices. newegg has the asus 280x's at 309.99 and the ones i bought were 299.99, the 290x's are going 549 to 589 a piece.

but i understand what your saying about the crossfire deal and there drivers thats the main reason why i stayed away from ati/amd gpus for so long. now that the drivers seem to be better and the prices are way better than nvidia gpus i gumped back into the amd ring give them a try. so far like i siad its been all smiles. so i dont think you can go wrong with either set up 280 or 290. best bang for the buck though is the duel 280x's but if you have the money then as i always say "GO BIG!!' lol. if i could afford two 290x's i would be all over those in a heart beat.

Im in Aus so prices for us are usually pretty crap. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=193_1559

I usually buy through these guys because they have always been good to me.

my 290x was $700 for the BF4 edition so if i get store credit back then i can afford 2 more cards and thats the dilemma i'm facing, non-ref 280x's or ref 290's and watercool them later (thats looking very pricy atm)

And i've only ever bought from PCCG and Megaware in Sydney, i stopped buying from Megaware when they priced things too high but they seem to have decent prices now.

Another issue i have with my case is that if the card is too high, like the asus or xfx his, i wont be able to mount them becuase of the toolless pci holders, the 290s would fit really easy as they are not as high
