Now another thing is that the 280x is working great but not so sure if it would be a huge upgrade to a 670. An upgrade yes a huge one not so sure. Would recoment the 290 with its 4gb of ram instead of less than hundred bucks more. Now to another side problem it seems like right there is a lottery on them. If you happen to buy one and they come with Elipidia memory most likely you will encounter problems like I have and the card even at stock wont play anything without some constant crashes. So my opinion: don't be impatient like me and get screwed... wait it out just a bit for more non-reference 290s or maybe crossfire 280x... Even one 280x wont max games in Surround... playable yes, fun not really. The 290 was doing much better on my setup until it crashes. :/

well my whole investment was 160$,,im just playing around,,i already had a 24 and 27 inch,,so I went out and bought the 24 inch for 160$,,,almost a match to the older one,,,,,my real plan is if I like this enough,,i will spend some cash and get 2 more 27 inch ASUS 1080p,,,the ASUS compared to these cheapo ACER 24 inchers,,is night and day,,the ASUS wins for sure,,,,,been thinking of going to a highend AMD gpu,,I wonder how good a single gtx780 would do or the 290,,,i,m willing to spend 600$+ or so on a GPU,,i,m gonna have to do some reseach I guess ,,,so you were just using a gtx660ti,,,,most of the reason I buy NVidia is because of the PhysX,,but it doesn't really seem to matter these days,,,,whats the difference between the 2 brands of GPU,,i mean the grahics,,,

To me just preference. Vai at the moment the prices on the AMD cards are hard to beat. But both the 290 and 290x are only out in the reference version... (hot and loud). Give it a few weeks and the custom cooler will start hitting the streets along with better drivers and so on. For 399 the 290 is a great card if you want to play surround but even then depending on the game you won't get 60fps unless you go Sli or crossfire.

well I,m quite surprised,,,,1 gtx 670 can play crisis 3 at 5670 x1080, medium settings and get hmmm,,30-40 FPS,,,,,seems to hang around 35 FPS a lot,,,TBH I didn't think it would be that good,,,,GTA-4,,,was pretty good to,,,,
