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

I can tolerate the noise, that's no biggie to me at all really. It's like a 800 hp V8. lol <___<

Yea, it's far louder and way more intense... a WHOO is nothing.

My point was that a whoo is a fair bit less exciting then a nice engine roar

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.


$400 for a solid card is a joke?

People expect too much for nothing.

But there are better options out there for as much or cheaper. Nvidia seriously needs to reevaluate their pricing schemes.

I just upgraded from a 560ti to a 280x. It's a huge improvement.
