R9 280X Vendor purchase

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am in the market for a new gpu since my r9 290 has pretty much died. It keeps saying that windows has unexpected shut down in the event viewer when I shut my pc down and due to the process of elimination of changing hardware out it stopped when I pulled the r9 290 out. When I had a look at the surface I can see some sort of a liquid comming out of one of the screws , even thou its not a water cooled gpu so i think its time has come.

Now on with the matter I am looking at probably downgrading since i only really play mmos like elder scrolls online now so I dont really need a fancy GPU.

Does it matter what brand of gpu that you buy in the r9 280x range? Don't really want to buy sapphire again as this is my second sapphire card that has gone bad

Gigabyte - $375

So the asus is better than the gigabyte why?

I believe a monster of a card like that should fit since I own a Fractal Design Define XLR2 case
