the new amd cards maybe in march or april but if they dont do it would be on summer

a R9 290 is 23 to 25% better than a 280x

The 290 is a great card, Nvidia doesn't have anything viable at the same price range.

yes looks good I didnt find it on PCpartpicker maybe they dont have newegg UK

for a single card it is a really good choice but if you go crossfire put the xfx on the lower slower

I will say again that as long as the card fits in the case, if you can find some of the silverstone sata cables I linked before a long graphics card should make no difference at all. At that point you can get what you want and not have to worry about the sata ports.

xf isnt supported on my mobo so im planning on this gpu then kick the hell out of it for a good few years before upgrading mobo, cpu... so an r9290 would be good as it would still do gaming on lower settings in a new build in a few years time, which would save me having to upgrade the gpu at same time... were as the r9 280 might not... just need to wait and see what my budget is at the time and get the best i can... but knowing me id leave myself skint just to get the better product lol so you never know ha

You also mentioned the slight fear of the i3 cpu bottlenecking a fast card such as the R9 290 though. PontiacGTX care to take a look?
