SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361BF4SR 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 BattleField 4 Game Edition Video Card

1 out of 5 eggs Nvidia next time... Just stopped working 05/28/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361BF4SR 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 BattleField 4 Game Edition Video Card

Pros: If the card crashes the PC every few minutes, I can't say that I see any.

Cons: The driver update software is archaic. AMD, do not display the 'Apply' button that does not operate. Spend 5 minutes using Nvidia's update. It works and doesn't pop-up windows or invades my user experience like c.raptr. Unbelievable, my PC just starting crashing every few minutes. After a complete diagnosis, swapping out every component, I found the issue... the issue is YOUR card. Oh... and yes I did wipe my system completely. I will say I did hear that if I wipe the drivers and load Sapphire 290x R9 specific drivers, the problem may go away. My questions is Really. Can't you get it together... just sad. $649, your welcome. NOT WORTH IT.
