as i heard, that the r9 295x2 is a double r9 290x, so should i buy an r9 295x2 or should i crossfire two r9 290x? will i get the same performance? i appreciate any comment.

Same performance, just take up less room. It's cheaper to buy 2 r9 290x

How much performance do you need?
If you will be using triple monitors or are planning on a 4k monitor, the cf 290x will be good.
Yes, you will need a cf capable motherboard which will be a tad more expensive, and heat will be a bit more of an issue with cf.

Otherwise, on a single monitor, a good single card like the GTX780ti will be all you need.
