More about 290x graphics card buy list provided
  1. Take the bf4 edition with bf4 free its more worth it then the other cards
  2. BF4 as an added bonus is great but I would buy one with a non-reference cooler myself.
  3. Wait for the aftermarket cooler to hit shelves, which would be soon. ASUS have preview their DCUII version, it would provide better performance, heat, sound, fps. Unless you don't mind, then just take the best value(Gigabyte) or the BF4 versions if you play the game.

    It wouldn't cost that much more, for ASUS, the usually added price is around ~$20-40, which I think it is worth it. It all comes down to preference really, if you feels like paying ~$30 more for better cooling and acoustic then sure, if it is not worth it, stick with the reference.

    If I get the current one the BFD4 edition, and get a game for free, would there be a problem?, I mean would I face future issues?, I don't want my graphics card to get damaged duo to sucky cooling system, or I don't want to have to turn my computer off for cool down breaks lmao.

  8. Look the cooling isn't great on graphics cards when they first come out anytime now you will be able to get aftermarket cooling on your cards for pretty much the same price as the not so great stock cooler. Just wait a bit and have a cooler running, better performing, and more reliable card. Go with a Sapphire or Gigabyte card when their coolers come out and maybe they will have a BF4 or some game bundle too. Good luck and hope you find what you are looking for

    Well it is up to you, if you go with the stock cooler now, you could always add a liquid cooling plate and setup later, or an Arctic Accelero Xtreme III
