SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: What can I say about this card- It's BEAUTIFUL the design on it makes it not only a sight for sore eyes for those with clear cases but also a nice little addition to those who build or are building their own PC. It's nice knowing that this card has three fans it actually reduces the amount of noise that the 290 and 290x are known for. The Tri-X can eat any game on Ultra with FXAA and AA settings on High as well. I've currently ran Day Z (Ultra), Battlefield 3 and 4 (Ultra), Rust (Ultra) and the Experience Index on my PC gives it a 7.9/7.9. I haven't ran scores on Unigine yet because I am currently trying to upgrade my Dual Intel Xeon 5100 Series processors and actually get an AMD Motherboard and processor (FX8350) So I will keep you updated on the score Unigine gives it. I actually got this card used on a competitor website for $350 so it is easily justifiable. I spent around 3 weeks of research trying to find the best card for the money and it came down to this card and the 780 Ti but in my opinion the R9 290 took home the bread

Cons: Kinda loud when you first install it...A little scary. Make sure you're running a 750w-1000w PSU that can handle the high speeds of the fans on the card. It is I believe a 12in Length GPU so make sure that you have enough room in your shell to put in.
