For my personal needs, is it better to use a R9 290x or a 780ti?

I meant as in a game that is intended to be run at 60fps rather than one that has a lower fps as a cap such as 30

Its the middle of the night here and I will go to bed soon so not writing my best.

Pretty much any game that the Physics isn't tied to the frame rate can be ran at and FPS. =D

I am not sure the particulars but I know some games are locked but can be registry edited or game patched to unlock for example.

If its so easy then can you tell me how to force 60fps on Sonic DX lol the game runs at a capped 50fps for the older superior version resulting in the screen tearing on my computers when playing it

The only reason screen tearing happens is your FPS go above the max render-able by your screen and then drop below, if you are running @ a constant FPS you shouldn't see any screen tearing.

I don't know how to make it 60FPS, but just reading on the internet it seems like it's possible.

Well the screen is fine when its like a static picture bar my character say moving forward, its when cameras pan around you that there seems to be some form of jumpiness, I tried radeonpro to force things to stick at 60fps and no difference

Emulators are the worst for it though.

I do assume HD plays a part though since even on my crt any sd content bar brand new stuff runs smooth, as do films but show something like a downscaled hd programme to sd then tearing occurs, this is most common noticed on pan and scan or when you have credits rolling.

95C is the intended running temperature of the 290X. As in, it's literally designed to perform as good as it can till it reaches 95C then it starts throttling back to hold the temperature at 95C.

If the entire PC is crashing from this then the card is likely faulty, your case doesn't actually have any airflow, or the PSU can't handle the card's power draw under full load.

aren't emulators mainly dependent on the CPU instead of the GPU?

Usually, yes. Some emulators do use the GPU tho.

It could just be a setting, as I notice on the amd catalyst software it says max temp 95 degrees.

It doesnt crash, it just powers off instantly, though I did try setting fan speed to 100% and the card sounds no different and temps dont change even at idle.

Oh and the psu is a 750w corsair one that cost a lot of money and I have 6 case fans on the unit, the pc ran cool with my 6870 and 7870 just a huge increase with the 290

Well, if @ 100% fan power it doesn't sound any louder there is definitely something wrong.
