from completed build The White Pig

Personally this is a good overclockable card, doesn't lag or loose frames in most games, over clocks like a champion, pretty smooth and easy.

Only downside is AMD drivers kinda suck, but other then that, this is a perfect card for decent performance

from completed build My First PC Build (i7 & 290X)

With the gpu, it really was a tough choice. I was originally planning on a 290, but then found out about the 970. My previous experiences with nvidia (750ti) were great. They were quiet, fast, and the software and drivers were amazing. AMD, on the other hand, was a different story. The drivers were crap, optimization and performance was also crap. To be fair, my AMD experience was with a 7570, which is an absolute piece of junk. As you can see, I really wanted a 970, but at the time of purchase in Australia, 970's were $500-550 and 290's were as low as $380. I was about to buy a tri-x 290, as they are quiet and cool, but MSY decided to put out a special and I picked up a 290x Windforce for $380 in a heartbeat! My experience with this card is mostly great, the performance is mindbogglingly good and it felt so good to tell everyone, I had the flagship card of AMD! (not anymore after the new cards were released :( ) But after a while, the noise and heat of this card got annoying. The triple fan windforce cooler is seriously loud when under full load in intensive games and it is very audible, even with headphones on. The drivers aren't the best, but it's better than they used to be. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the 290x, the noise is a little annoying, but the performance is great, especially for the price.
