Curious about the price on 290.

Other than that.. 280 and 270 are apparently rebrandings of 7970ghz and 7950, so... yeah... I suppose the price is a welcome change.

Looks good, I'll be waiting until Nvidia releases their next generation in around 6 months. Titan will keep me good until then, considering the benchmarks for their top card show Titan winning some, it winning others, not by much on either case.

So I'm more interested in what Nvidia will be offering, 30% improvement over Titan? Hell yes if so.

Is this the 9000 series people were talking about? Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing benchmarks of these cards and comparing them to the Nvidia cards.

I like it, especially now that I have the voltage unlocked, the reference board can handle quite a bit of juice so with a bios mod, which allows to go past 106% power usage. It does extremely well. I also have another cooler (ACX) coming Friday, which lowers power consumption by 8%(According to a few users on EVGA's site) and drops temps around 10-15c. So with that combination it should work out beautifully, well enough until more cards come out, but most importantly.. More games to take advantage of all the power.

Right now @ 2560x1440, I have to lower AA down in Crysis 3, Metro LL and a few others not to hit 60fps.

So basically, a 780 and the 290X is basically a 1 card/gpu solution for majority of people unless you really want to turn AA up @ 2560x1440.

Wow, That's pretty awesome.

Those games must look beautiful.

Yeah they do, more crisp but it's not that much of an improvement to some games with detail, such as BF3. Older games I noticed 2560x1440 a lot more tho.

So far my system is good enough and I'm picking up a PS4 for an added bonus of additional games to play.
