A thought just occurred to me: I see lots of people having problems with AMD's graphics drivers, but fewer having problems with NVIDIA. Am I just imagining that?

 

Also, I'd have to go and learn how the 290 compares to the 780 in Crysis 3 with the 2500K at 1680x1050 or something very close to that.

I have a amd video card (2years ago) and I dont have problems

And the r9 290 would be 2 or more fps better than a 780gtx

To boot, I would be ordering the DirectCU II:

But, I wouldn't have enough money for this until maybe June or July at the latest.

if I were you I would go with the r9 290 from xfx it comes with bf4 and that`s a big extra(i dont know if the asus comes with bf4,and you can check that the temperature on the double d isnt high seeing that it is a 450w thermal power design card(heat wise) I suggested someone else the double d and he is satisfied with it

I don't need/want BF4. lol I'm also a "pack rat". I have never sold anything in my life, and the likelihood of me selling the free copy of BF4 would be extremely low - especially since I would be obtaining it for free. I wouldn't feel right selling something that I got for free (I'm also not seeing any that come with BF4 right now).

 

Also, I have the DirectCU II GTX 580, and I'm extremely happy with it. The price for the XFX is the same as the ASUS right now for me and plus the DirectCU is 1000 MHz core and 5040 MHz memory. I don't want to do any overclocking of my own, and so this is a good thing.

C3 is one game that runs quite well on amd. i used to crossfire 7900 series cards to max it using 1080 (Very High and 8MSAA). i can do the same now with a single 290 at stock. have to keep my i7 oc'ed to 4.5GHz, though, and never tried any lower.

edit: i don't measure my fps, sorry. my main indicator are smoothness (subjective) and if i can win matches.

Framerates are meaningless anyway without knowing the frame times.

 

Anyway, so is that with the "Gaming Evolved" thing is about in the game loading intro to Crysis 3? AMD Graphics, not AMD CPUs? When I saw that (I have g_skipintro enabled now), I thought that it was talking about AMD's CPUs.
