SAPPHIRE DUAL-X 100373L Radeon R9 280 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent GPU performance for the price. For 164 after rebate, I was very happy. This GPU can max most games at 1080p. It also has 3gb of ram which will help it age a little better than a 760 with newer games. I was pleased with my card as it didn't have any coil whine and came with hynix memory.

Cons: There are two Sapphire 280s listed on newegg and one was cheaper. Newegg did not price match it.

XFX Core Edition R9-295X-8QFA Radeon R9 295x2 8GB 1024 (512 x 2)-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card is amazingly fast and somehow the 120mm radiator can tame 2 290x's. The noise profile isn't too bad considering what kind of power it has. I haven't found too many driver issues other than having to wait to 14.9.2 for Crossfire support in Shadows of Mordor. I have not noticed any stuttering with crossfire and it scales excellent. It also makes an excellent space heater.

Cons: There are some cons. The VRM cooling on this card is not adequate. I tried to crossfire this with a MSI Gaming 290x and the 290x heat caused the VRMs to overheat and the core to drop to 300mhz. I would be cautious about crossfiring two of these unless you have 2 pcie slots between cards. Fortunately, the 295x2 is already pretty much overkill on 1440p so I gave the 290x to my nephew. It has been a smoother experience with 2 GPUs. I also think 75 is too low of a throttle point. I did get close to it running into it. I changed the fan for Corsair SP 120 performance fans in push/pull and am getting max temps of 68 and 70 when it really cranks. Most games it max's in the 60s. I think it could have at least used a thicker radiator or 240nm radiator.

Other Thoughts: You need a beefy power supply for this. You need 28 amps per cable. This is probably one of the few cards where you need seperate cables from the power supply. I recommend adding a 2nd fan for push pull to get a few degrees cooler.
