  1. Best answer
    If you're not worried about the money the #1 would be your winner, but if you look at cost vs performance I would go with #3. Keep in mind though the 290 has serious throttling issues when it heats up. There is actually an article about it on,3671.html
  2. like what you said it does gives problem however it not "Sapphire R9-290 TRI-X OC" both card are different
  3. The Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X is by far the best of these cards but if you're gaming at 1080p the GTX 770 would be sufficient.
  4. I'd say get the 780 or 290 instead of these, or if you dont hav the $$$, then the 770 4gb or 280x.
  5. What kind of monitor do you have and which games are you going to play? I know that for 1080p @60Hz the 280X or the 770 will do more than enough for you, a 290 would just be a waste... If you play mantle games (BF4, Thief etc.) The 280X beats the 770 in those games and some others, basically the 770 and 280X perform the same :P also I've seen benchmarks where the 280X toxic is 2fps behind a stock 780 ;D
