ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: King of high resolution gaming, 2160p

Cons: Gone through two cards and they're both bad. Stock is OC'd and it's not stable at all. Frequent crashes from too much heat.

Other Thoughts: Sure would be nice to get a refund, seeing as i'm outside the RMA window.

PowerColor Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 AXR9 290X 4GBD5-MDHG/OC 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support OC Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's the king of playing games at 2160p.

Cons: I was getting constant flickering black screens. Problem turned out to be VRAM overheating. I had used an aggressive fan profile at stock clocks and it was still happening.

I have the memory clocked down to 950Mhz and the flickering is gone. Pretty sad when you can't run stock clocks stable.

Other Thoughts: I wish I could get a refund for this, seeing i'm out of the 30 day RMA window.

SAMSUNG UD590 Series U28D590D 28
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheapest 28'' 60Hz 2160p monitor currently on the market. It's fast! 60Hz and a 1 ms response time is great.

The TN panel is not bad at all for colors. Looks pretty darn good.

Cons: ZERO adjustability for the stand. Absolutely none!! This was my reason for knocking an Egg off.

Other Thoughts: The quality of the panel seems lower than the Dell P2815Q. The Dell looks sharper and smoother than the Samsung. Oh well, the 60Hz is worth it over the SLOW 30Hz Dell nicer picture.

Menu navigation is weird with the selector on the rear of the panel, but not terrible. Just weird.
