  1. It's worth it. The ASUS is probably the best option because of it's cooling and reliability. All ASUS products are considered great.
  2. Best answer
    Both AMD and Nvidia GPUs usually work better with Intel CPUs.

    Sapphire, MSI and Asus are all generally good brands. I have a nearly five years old Sapphire HD5770 and it still works like new.
  3. You could look up some benchmarks between those non-reference models and also compare the different warranties. All three are solid manufacturers, but if I had to choose, I'd pick ASUS.
  4. Best 290X is XFX RADEON R9 4gb BLACK EDITION DOUBLE DISSIPTATION. It's beast and beats the other one listed and it's cheaper and just look at the reviews i personally use this card
