I know this is a bit early as the cards have just come out. I'm in the market for a new card i was going to get a vapor-x 290 or 290x. With the new 980 how does everyone like them. My biggest concern is they are reference cards. Is it worth buying one now (as far as i can tell everything is out of stock and at least a weeks wait now) or would it be better to wait a few months till non reference cards start to come out. ATM from almost all the benchmarks ive seen they only slightly beat the 780tis. Which is fine by me, but im worried about the heat they will produce. Any feedback would be great. For the price of these cards being at 550 and on par and some instances beat a 780ti it seems like an amazing deal.
