SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361SR 4GB GDDR5 Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad at all 03/08/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361SR 4GB GDDR5 Video Card

Pros: Pretty good fps on games at the highest settings. Runs games beautiful at 1920x1080 with a 144hz monitor 1ms refresh rate.
I'm about to order a second card and try out Crossfire.

Cons: Card runs at 74c with a little OC and fans at 75% through MSI afterburner playing TR. Fans are loud but I play with headphones so I don't really have a problem with it.

Other Thoughts: I actually ordered the Tri-X OC model of this card and was sent this card instead. Newegg offered the RMA and had no problem accepting a refund, but I kept the card because the Tri-X OC was out of stock and I didn't feel like waiting.
Not to mention the box it came in was totally destroyed (due to FedEX somewhere down the line). I don't live in the best area of Washington DC, but I dont know what happened. The box was also missing my Intel CPU, which I'm currently in the middle of sorting out between Newegg and Fedex.
