5 out of 5 eggsMonster card- revives aging systems

Pros: This card is an absolute beast. I was going to buy an R9 270 and then crossfire it in a few months, but that meant I would have to buy a bigger powersupply. buying the R9 290 now was cheaper in the long run.

I have an aging system (built in 2010). AMD Athlon 2 X4 (3.3Ghz), 8GB 1333 ram, 550W power supply and windows 7, 64 bit.

The mantle feature has had a dramatic boost for my frame rates in Battlefield 4 and Titanfall.

In BF4, I get 75-95 FPS on high settings at 1080p and I get 55-75 fps on ultra settings.

In Titanfall, at 1080P, I get 60 FPS on the highest settings. This game must be frame rate limited b/c it never waivers above or below 60fps.

My prior card was a 1GB ram, Radeon 5770 and I could only play BF4 on 720p, lowest graphics settings possible and still only averaged 25-30 fps. I couldn't play titanfall at all.

This card has breathed new life into my system and has saved me from upgrading. I can't say enough about it.

Cons: FYI: Very long card. You need 12" length to accommodate this card, from the tip to the tail. be aware of this. I had to get a new full tower to accommodate it.

Other Thoughts: My rebate was processed without an issue and I have had no coil whine issues at all. The card stays super cool.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Everything. There is not a game I can't run on ultra. Every game runs smoothly and the video looks great. This card can handle Far Cry 4, ACU, Evolve, and others with ease. I have not had any overheating issues either.

Cons: It's huge. I had to rearrange my HDD and SSD to get this card to fit. Other than that nothing yet.

4 out of 5 eggsBought as a replacement

Pros: Some much quieter than the MSI HD7970 it replaced.

Cons: It is large. I have a large case and thought it would large enough to handle this behemoth. I was wrong and had to modify my case.

Other Thoughts: bought this to replace the HD 7970 That was destroyed by lightning. I can't believe how much quieter than the 7970 this card is. I haven't had much time to stress test it yet. But what stress I did put it under the fans ramped up nicely with little extra noise. Got it up to 75°C.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I could have hoped for

Pros: Worked right out of box as expected. The in game improvement was instantly noticeable from my HD7770. No scan lines or lag. Video/game quality is impeccable. Very happy with the card so far!

Cons: The only potential issue with this card is it's size. It's 12 inches long, and I have an ATX-mid sized case. I had to drop the card into the case on an angle and them turn it straight to pop it in the PCI-E slot. If you have a smaller/crowded case, then this card is pushing it. In my Phantom 910 case, it JUST fits. There is well less than 1cm of clearance to the HDD bays. If the card was slightly longer, it wouldn't fit. Keep this in mind when buying!

4 out of 5 eggsOrdered 3

Pros: Great price
Excellent cards for overclocking. I can run 2 at 1100core/1600memory with a voltage increase on sapphire trixx application
temps are fine with stock cooler
pretty silent when fan speeds are below 60% (all the time for me)

Cons: First was DOA and newegg promptly replaced it. 3rd card died and isn't covered by warranty, I have yet to send it back to sapphire for repairs.
coil whine. basically a humming sound that can come and go, it seems to be tied to clock speeds and fan speeds I think because I can sometimes get it to go away when I change the clocks. (this isn't something you hear all the time but it is there and it doesn't affect performance or lifespan, just annoying.)
power hungry. make sure you have enough power for these suckers, I believe they take 250watts alone.

Other Thoughts: A little bit of overclocking and it's just as good as a 290x. I highly recommend these cards as I have used several with few problems (only the usual problems that any gfx card is subject to no matter how much you spend on it.)

5 out of 5 eggsbest bang for your buck

Pros: This card cant take one heck of a beating and want more (graphics that is).
Runs cool and quite
Overclocks well
My overclocked fx 8320 (4.5) and this r9 290 run smooth as butter
with the Evga 750w G2 and Crosshair V Formula-Z

Cons: black screen and freezing issues with the first sapphire R9 290 I received returned for a replacement. 2nd one works great. (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Newegg costumer support was the most helpful and friendly support I have ever received from a company first time i ever had an issues in the 4 years doing business with Newegg. When I received my replacement R9 290 I had one small start up issue, so I sent an email to sapphire tech support in the US and asked if they had the lasted Vbios update for the R9 290. There email response time was amazing, within 2 two hours I had new bios installed and bench marking underway. No more problems with the card, One last thought, When I installed sapphire trixx oc software and amd ccc omega, I had to disabled amd overdrive and just ran the trixx oc software the card rans way better. Seems to be a conflict between the two same if your use msi afterburner as well, has something to do with amd overdrive and oc software in the start with windows mode with both set to that mode. Overall this is the best R9 290 out there for price and service. The support I received was so great I had to give the five egg rating.

5 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: runs great no problems Skyrim seems like a different game now. The Witcher 2 looks amazing. this card is an excellent choice.

Cons: First card I had to RMA. Second card worked with no problems. If you get this card and have any problems at all don't let anyone tell you to flash it, change some setting in your bios, or anything else., It should work flawlessly right out of the box or RMA it immediately.

Other Thoughts: I seen another review that said they would have to pay return shipping, I did not pay anything, only lost a little time. the card came back to me next day delivery.

5 out of 5 eggsMeets Expectations

Pros: Maxes out details on titles such as BF4 or Farcry4. Very satisfied with the cooling solution and do not hear the fan.

Cons: I had to buy an extension ribbon for my PCI-E x1 to allow me to move my raid card out of the way of the fan of the graphics card. This is on an Asrock Z97 Pro4. Still totally worth it though.

2 out of 5 eggsNice when it works...

Pros: Runs games amazingly well

Cons: it causes my rig to randomly freeze. Seems like this was caused by UPS mishandling the package or who knows. Have tried everything that I can find to try and remedy the solution, but the freezes still come. Going to try and RMA it, but we'll see, having to pay return shipping on a defective item is awesome.
