that is a very broad question, it depends on what you need it to do. it can run any game on max settings 1600p aslong as your cpu doesnt bottleneck it and your psu can handle it. personally, i think the 290 non-X version is a better deal, or the gtx 780 if you dont use multiple monitors at high resolutions.

It is not worth buying unless you have 4K resolution simply to expensive over the R9 290.

there is absolutely nothing wrong with an amd card, they are great cards that compete on an equal level of performance

Well the board you list is CF compatible although at X16 X4, just go up a step to the G45!

Will another R9 290 fix in a X4 PCI slot?

it will fit in a x16 slot running at x4 speed, but it is not recommended to run a graphics card in any slot other than a x16.

The specs are
1 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slot
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot
PCI_E4 supports up to PCIe 2.0 x4 speed
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots
3 x PCI slots

Will PCIe 2.0 x16 and R9 290 degrade performance on crossfire?
