XFX Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 R9-290A-ENBC 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great cards!
Played Bioshock Infinite all the way through on them over the weekend and they didn't miss a beat.

Cons: LOUD! During gaming isn't so bad, especially when you're really into the game and got the sound up.. :)
However, do any GPGPU processing and it quickly heats up to 95C and kicks in the fan at warp speed.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why everyone's hating on the XFX R9's. I bought 5 of these Black Edition cards, 3 in 1 PC and 2 in the other and they are outstanding performers.

For you Scrypt miners out there - they get a good 915-920kh/s each with the right settings.

ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) DirectX 11 ZT-50204-10M 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Awesome card. Runs everything I've thrown at it so far smoothly. Full day of Skyrim playing on ultra settings and no heat issues nor do I hear the fan spin up when it's under load.

Delivery was fast, as always. Thanks NewEgg!

Cons: Not too keen on the colour scheme.

Other Thoughts: I don't use a case so now I have a giant bumble-bee coloured card staring me in the face as I game.
