    I love this card, can't say enough good things about it. The best one I've ever had and it was under $300.

    This card hardly breaks a sweat on whatever game I throw at it! I'm currently gaming at 1900 x 1200 at 60 Hz, and the GPU has yet to kick its fan above ~55%. It's making me want to upgrade my monitor sooner.

    I can max out (or get pretty close) almost every game at 1080p60, and it only cost me a bit over 200. Here's my 3dmark result from a bit ago. I think I'd do a bit better since my case has better cooling now, but the difference shouldn't matter that much.

    Awesome GPU, especially if you can get it on the cheap used.

    The R9 290 needs a huge cooler and this card does not disappoint. With a 1000MHz clock it stays at a relatively cool 65 to 70 degrees C.

    This card just so happened to be the card used in the build I was following for the most part, honestly had no idea I was joining Team Red at the time or that there was even a rivalry going on between Nvidea and AMD. I just knew this card was reasonably priced and had good reviews plus it looked cool. Either way I've been incredibly happy with the purchase, the card is a beast and probably the best AIB R9 290 in my opinion. Temperatures are good considering, usually sits around 70-74 F when gaming. Down the road I added a second I bought used off Ebay and since then when crossfire is supported and working they run anything on Ultra 1080p 60+ fps. However the recent purchase of my 1440p monitor has them starting to show their age. As now I have to fiddle and lower setting for newer games to run well. Definitely feel an upgrade coming along in the next couple years when the time is right.

    390 has higher, clocks and bandwidth, and lower TDP. Still I'm really happy with this 290, loses a star because power usage.
