Black Screen issue, XFX replaced

XFX Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation Edition Video Card R9-290A-EDFD

Pros: Card is a great value which is why I chose it. Card had issues but XFX replaced it (see explanation below).

Cons: The first card I received suffered from a black screen issue which is apparently common with AMDs R9 cards. I could perform all normal PC tasks with no issues, but gaming would crash to a black screen within a few minutes. After much troubleshooting and googling etc, I eventually RMA'd the card to XFX. Not only did they replace my card, they sent me an 290X instead. The 290X is working flawlessly and I was very pleased with XFX's decision to stand behind their product. If you experience a similar issue I highly recommend that you dont waste your time trying to fix the card, just RMA it!
