    Best card for the price per performance. Runs a little hot but the Vapor x handles it well.

    As a MSI R9 290x Lightning owner, I know what it's like to own a beefy Radeon card, OC'd out the butt, that weighs a ton, and features a totally redone heatsink.

    Though this card leaves something to be desired in terms of packaging over the "black and gold leaf jewelry grade box" that the Lightning comes in, it makes up for it in sheer performance. This card can't decide if it's a R9 290, or an R9 290x. It's OC'd to a terrific 1030 MHz out of the box, which I was able to push up to an amazing 1120 MHz.

    As opposed to the Lightning logo, which changes LED color based on load (so very sporadically, and looks ugly, so I stick it at red). This card changes the Sapphire logo LED color based on temperature! With blue for cool, yellow for warm (expect it to be yellow in 99% of gaming scenarios, even when OC'd) and red for hot (only achieved red when running OC'd in a completely ridiculously modded Skyrim, and Crysis 3 maxed out)

    5/5 for this card, and for Sapphire. They have definitely earned their name as the EVGA of AMD. Would definitely pick another one of these up, even at 350 dollars.

    I bought this card before doing research into other cards, probably would of bought the 1070/1080 if i knew, but it does what it's meant to "plays games in ultra at 60fps.. and thats all i wanted"

    I've had this card for a lil over a year now. I haven't had the need to overclock it yet! still in love with it.
