Which one should I choose? I am going to SLI in 2 years time. In my country, they are priced around the same with Gigabyte - RM1500, Zotac RM1469 and MSI at RM1380
***but Zotac comes with 3 Splinter Cells (Compilation) and Batman Arkham Origin while others don't. ***
so my question is : Will r9 290 or 280x overheat my system? Can my PSU handle them?? (ATI's GPUs have poorer cooling and power consumption than NVDIA RIGHT?)
Regarding my SLI-ing in the future, I will change the whole system components and case to a large ATX 2-3 years later, so it won't be a problem.
The Sapphire r9 290 cost around RM1670 here. Shall I wait for VAPOR or TOXIC version first?
Sapphire r9 280x TOXIC cost RM1260 while VAPOR RM1200
PS: I am not rushing to upgrade my system. Able to hold for a few weeks.
uhhh.... those prices are ridiculous.... you can get an r9-290 for that price and have about 30% more performance. or just get a 280x for $300. the 770 only pumps out maybe 3-5 fps more than a 760 in the top 5 most popular games... for the $130 price over a $250... i call that a rip off. if you absolutely have to have a 770... i would go with the msi as they have a 3 year warranty and have one of the best coolers on the market with the twin frozr.
