I use a mildly overclocked 290x for 4k and play BF4 at 4k / no AA / Ultra settings with the only thing lowered being post processing to medium as it kills frames at anything above it. The only visual difference is barely noticeable and I actually prefer it as high/ultra post processing makes everything too shiny as if it's under a magnifying glass.. I average 50-60fps on full 64 player servers. 290 is plenty for 1080p, especially if you get the core to 1100 or so it's just as fast as a 290x and slightly behind a 390x.

I straight up ask the seller if the card was used for mining.

I hope you're kidding
Like Dijkstra said "You're a regular master effin sleuth" biggrin.gif

but seriously, with the receipt/invoice and photos you can be like more or less sure it's not from mining rig. there's still a possiblility of a normal gaming rig used for mining tho.

Here's a clock for clock benchmark video of two msi 1060's...

They really should have called this the 1050ti.. or atleast the 6gb the 1060ti and this the vanilla 1060.. I mean seriously, an 11fps drop in RoTR at 1080p?

how much is it? Because OC UK has a 290x 8GB for 170-180GBP and oced is the same as 390x

what brand is the card?
