XFX Double Dissipation Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9-290X-EDFD 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Very good card runs very well plays both assassins creed and dragon age inquisition at good tempatures. Very quiet card drivers are awesome.

Cons: Only two raptr is pretty bad the web services portal is very buggy but this is on AMD and not the hardware card... Also sticker peels off of the card when running computations for a few hours and the card starts to heat up. Easily fixed by removing sticker so I ask why use a sticker if it heats card up under extreme computations with algorithmic processing?

Other Thoughts: I may look into water cooling this card as fans really don't do any video card justice when doing GPU mathematics with MATLAB type applications. Only challenge is I have yet to find a sleeve that easily fits the R9x platform... If anybody can suggest one I am all ears and will be water cooling soon. Especially since all of my other components are cooled (CPU and kernel bypass networking cards)

GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card

Pros: Very quiet for power consumption, extremely stable drivers vs AMD, video quality and shading is superb, integrates with GPU algorithmic programs easily as compared to AMD cards which do not.
I use this card for both gaming and for algorithmic math calculations with GPU offload. This card outperformed my similarly priced amd card for both graphical presentation and mathematical GPU calculations.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this card to anybody looking for a stable, quiet, and versatile video card that easily adapts to being a matlib quant calculation card for at home algo checking. Does not provide same math calc as a GPU grid however at this price point I was very happy with performance.
