I would like to get one just to mess with. I have no need for it at all.

I currently have a 7970. I'm upgrading to a 290x Because I want the best possible Bang for my buck that will hold me over for the duration of this console generation. Also I planned on running a dual card setup. This card seems like the card for me.


Uh, another 7970 is still a better bang for your buck.

I have the GTX 680 2GB but I want something a little more powerful for my 1440p monitor especially if I want to max out some games.

I'm keeping my gtx 680 until the gtx 880 comes out. It's been doing fine at 1440p gaming.

And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

I have HD 6970, I just built a new PC though (first time ever). But I salvaged that 6970 and hard drive from my old PC. R9-290x is just exactly 2 gens up for me so it is worth getting for the new PC, though I am currently deciding between that or a 780. I will wait for the non-ref models though, don't like the looks of the reference AMD designs.

No, R9-290X is single GPU.

By the way, R9-280X is just a rebranded 7970
