Okay so I have a his radeon 7950 with a reference cooler. Lately I've been disappointed in the preformance I've been getting with it and have been thinking of getting a new card. The cards I'm looking at currently are an r9 290/x or a 780. But is it worth the extra couple of hundreds of dollars?, my specs are:
I5 3570 @ 3.4ghz cooled with a thermaltake nic c5
4 gb ddr3 (though planing on getting a singular 8gb vengeance red dimm later this year)
and a cooler master 600w psu
R9 290 non X
Largest memory bus
4 GB Vram
And I wait for non reference models as they currently run hot.
