Any recommendations? I don't want to go spending tons of money but would like to see all the eye candy biggrin.gifthumb.gif

I'm running eyefinity 5760x1080 and would like to do that in Fallout 4 if it supports it.

Wait for the benchmarks and see how the cards are holding up. Hard to suggest when no one has the game yet. I'd assume the recommended specs are for 1080p.

I couldn't wait. Just picked up a 290x off craigslist for $225. thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

Has Hynix memory so that's good. thumb.gif

Only concern is it's the reference design thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif the single fan, so it might be loud and get hot quickly devil.gif but I benchmarked it using furmark before purchasing and even at 100% gpu usage and 90 degrees it never went over 60% fan speed post-flame-small.gif FPS were 30% more than my 280x at the same resolution and AA so it's a real 290x.

It's also no louder than my Asus 280x with the triple fans so it should be fine, this 280x has always been very quiet when actually gaming thumb.gif

I think $225 is a pretty good price for the 290x, the 290x was a $900 video card last February then dropped to a $300 video card 12 months ago

Reference blower design is a frakking blow dryer. You either have extremely good noise tolerance or amazing headphones.

it really wasn't bad while benchmarking in furmark, and furmark is a burn-in benchmark, it pegs the GPU at 100% the entire time to get the GPU as hot as possible as fast as possible, there's no downtime like in real video games.

I'll try it with actual games, if it's too bad I'm sure I can throw it back on craigslist and get my $225 back.

Interesting, maybe there was a tweak to the reference design or something? When I had an R9 290, it lasted two days before it got aftermarket cooling.

Except for the fact that one can simply play it earlier, is there any advantage in buying it on or shortly after it's release? Because I personally bet that it's very first PC version (even with the Day 1 Patch) will be very badly optmized (and probably especially badly for AMD cards). And, after some time it will cost quit a bit less than in the beginning (you can already get it for about 35$ now, before it has even been released).

Also, I really hope that sometime there will be a patch that adds DirectX 12 support. Seeing as it will probably not be a very graphically taxing game (SSAA aside), I am pretty sure i it will be a very CPU limited game. I could imagine the console versions of the game would also benefit from it.

Why not wait for the GOTY version?
