Thanks man! And sorry for my noobness.. But that card is like the R9 290X? Or is it exactly that card and they just forgot to ass the X?

Because i checked this site http://www.logicalincrements.com/ and thats the only comparison i got.

They're very similar, I haven't looked at pictures of the two next to each other but it looks like they use the exact same PCB and Cooler. The 290X is the higher end model, the 290 is right behind it though, as far as performance goes which definitely gives it a ton of bang for the buck as far as high end cards go. I'm considering one for myself and just letting my 670 handle PhysX, but if I do decide to get one I'll definitely be waiting for custom units because that card is going to benefit from improved cooling like few before it.

Sounds like a great card then, but do you mean by "custom units"? It doesnt have good cooling? Is it loud?

At 100% fan speed it falls between "Car moving at 65 MPH" and "Vacuum cleaner" so yeah, it's pretty noisy and the cooling is lackluster as well. I wouldn't buy the one I linked, but ones with aftermarket coolers shouldn't cost much, if any, more once they're widely available. I'm not sure when that will be though.
