Yeah, it's been proven a million times over, his results are wrong or something.

R9 290X all the way, much faster card out the box and if you do plan on running Crossfire def get a reference card.
So you can change the cooler or do watercooling down the line.

Also a 290X is faster than a 780 there is no need to argue about it, this is a FACT thumb.gif

The OP says he doesn't care for overclocking his GPU(s)

The stock 290X is generally faster than the 780. There are a million tests out there that prove it, here's one.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2013/10/08/why-amds-mantle-matters/

From a performance standpoint the 290X wins. You should also take a look at what the drivers / software have to offer. If you absolutely want to have ShadowPlay then the extra $40 for the 780 may be worth it.

I run 2560 x 1440p with GTX 780 3GB cards in SLI and VRAM hasn't been an issue. So the 4GB on the 290X may be more future-proofing than something you need for 1440p now.

here is all the evidence needed. Benchmarks.

R9 290x 40% fan speed vs GTX 780
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1056?vs=1036


R9 290x (Uber mode meaning 54% fan speed by switching to BIOS 2 by switch) vs GTX 780
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1059?vs=1036

I use about custom 60% fan speed and it really is not that annoying anymore after I got used to it. It feels like white noise not annoying but noticeable.

I just got rid of an geforce 770 with the titan cooler, and it was pretty loud so I probably won't notice a difference.

the main thing i'm wanting to do is get something better then my old geforce 770 2GB, and something that i can in the future sli/crossfire and perform well on a 1440p monitor.

The OP was asking about stock reference cards. Why are you posting benchmarks of an overclocked 780 beating R9 290X at 1,030MHz? headscratch.gif

You could get the 6gb 780 and OC it, especially if it's the sc acx. It also has Cuda which is important for me because of gpgpu apps that require it.

290x don't use the ref cooler and don't expect much OC, 780 OCs well on stock cooler but if you looking at 4k in the future rock the 6gb card from evga

The 6gb is over $500... Usually well over.
One would assume he cares not for cuda as it is not specified.
Yes the 290X does have a terrible stock cooler, as does the 780... sure its not as loud or hot..but its cooling a less powerful gpu.
And either of them can clock great or terribly... blatantly saying the stock 780 will OC well isn't true..
Have seen people getting less than 100mhz on the core... its down to luck, no one manufacturer is going to give the advantage.


And if you look at 4x titan reviews you will see that all games benched at 4k run out of GPU power
before going over 4gb Vram(apart from infinite with its mem glitchieness) meaning we are going to
need more powerful gpu's before we can truly utilize that 6gb of Vram anyway..

Fair points, im just salty because I cant use a 290x since Nvidia is having a dirty affair with The Foundry and VRAY.

I keep seeing them in classified for good prices and a little piece of me dies each time.

I am strongly considering a PNY 780.
