ASUS R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast for a single card with plenty of vram. Looks sharp and is customizable either red or yellow.

Cons: Very power hungry and a hot head. Very picky about working with certain drivers. Day one I installed this 6 months ago it flickered and the monitor went black. Had to pick and choose more up to date drivers for this to work in safe mode. Windows technical preview installed the wrong driver and crashed the screen as well. Forget about using beta drivers. I tried this card in two different systems with plenty of psu headroom just to be sure..

Other Thoughts: Was tempted to get a second card now that its on sale but why throw good money after bad. I read that RMA'ing the card is useless as they send the cards back telling you theres nothing wrong with it from previous reports. I talked to tech support and they think certain drivers don't set the screen refresh rate appropriately. Well this is a serious problem. I have even updated the firmware to the latest. Forget about resell value if the card is a dud. I like Asus as a company, esp their motherboards, but their driver support for audio and video components is fair at best. STAY AWAY!!!

ASUS R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast card. 4gb Vram helps a lot! Customizable to boot!

Cons: GPU-Tweak software can only handle only one card and goofs picking the wrong card if you have a second video card installed! Also bios software will auto flash your card with out warning so don't download it from Asus and click it unless you have to! Software development team must be out to lunch!

Other Thoughts: Noticed Asus does not care to update bios, or software or drivers of their products more than a couple times then moves on to newer product.
