post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
hi guys i'm new in the forum this is my first post
i'm going to build new gaming/workstation rig with 3 ASUS PA279Q 7680*1440
you know i want k6000 but its overpriced then i need something similar like nvidia titan
for 3 quad hd monitors i need a lot of vram and bandwith and my Budget 2000 for graphic cards so i choose 2 titan black or 3 r9 290x
who is better for 7680*1440
ps:this rig is for gaming at ultra and photo and video editing
ps2:the videos are raw 12-bit 2.5k and graphic work

For ultra high resolution multi monitor R9 290X CF is the better option. here is R9 290X CF vs GTX 780 Ti SLI.

The DCII has an awful cooler. It doesen't even make full contact with the die. The Tri-X is a better option.

So if you have some benchmarks of the tri-x edition in cross fire

It's true. Only 3 of the 5 heatpipes makes actual contact. I would post a link if I was not on the phone.
Edit:
There's a 10mhz difference on the core clock. That's not noticable.
