That Asus model is looking pretty sweet! Matching a 780 in some games. Way to go AMD.

I like that XFX model. It's what I picture a Corsair-branded graphics card looking like.

I don't like ASUS cards though (aside from the ARES II). They look like ugly toy race cars.

So what about the claims that this card will outperform the Titan?

*Edit* read card name as "290" instead of "280" so NM me.

If a factory OC 280x can compete with a 780 in some games, I see no reason why a 290x can't do the same to a titan.

Not a valid comparison. Before the rebranding the most powerful card amd had was a dual gpu. Only time will tell.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
