Is the Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC (non-X) a Good Buy?

I want to know if this graphics card is a good one and if it does not have any faults with it. Also what is better this or a gtx 770 4gb?

  1. A r9 290 is better than a GTX 770, a 770 doesn't compare with the R9 290. A GTX 780 is on par with a R9 290.

    That's great I found the R9 290 for a better price than the GTX 770 4gb version. Can you believe that?! Also, are there any glaring problems with this graphics card or is it all good?

    Well the Hawaii chip in the R9 290 is considered a hot gpu. But the Tri-x cooler is not bad, however, if you see the Vapor X edition R9 290 that is considered one of the best cooler for a R9 290.

    Ok thanks.
  5. Here a review of the card:http://www.anandtech.com/show/7601/sapphire-radeon-r9-290-review-our-first-custom-cooled-290

    Also make sure you have at least a 650W power supply that is 80 +bronze certified. 550W would be fine but 650 is better. Make sure it isn't a Corsair CX or CS series.
