Ordered myself an R9 290! Should be a nice upgrade from my 570.

I was really debating if I shoulda have went with a 770 and stuck with nvidia, hopefully i don't regret it. Kinda sad over the loss of physx but i'll get over it. nvidia's prices are really not so smart.. 4gb 770 for $400? Good joke.

not to mention 256 bit. But the R9 290 is a good choice, but I believe most people here would have recommended to wait for after market coolers.

Yea, that's what I was reading here last night. I did quite a few searches instead of making the same topic that's been made 99 times already. I also read people mention turning up the stock fan because from factory it doesn't go past a certain point?

I think for $400 it's a great choice for price/performance, paid in the $300s for the 570. I do hope I don't have much trouble with drivers...nvidia is definitely good about that.

I'm hoping this will cause Nvidia to stop being douchebags and price their cards more reasonably...which will make AMD try to match/beat their prices, thus enable me to exchange my 7850 for something more high end.

Msi afterburner and set fan to 55-70% depending on how much noise you can tolerate. The stock max speed is 45%

I don't understand why they'd put a half assed fan on like their flagship GPU that rivals a Titan.

55%+ is insane. What is wrong with you?
