My System Specs


A little disappointed in the R9 280x... I have to say I didn't expect it to be slower than a 7970 ghz. With rebates and Never Settle Forever it is a tough sell while 7970 stock lasts. Great value when compared to Nvidia but I don't see why they would even spend the money putting this product out. Maybe I was just overly optimistic but I was looking for 5% better than a 7970 ghz. The R9 270x is really strong value though.

Looking at old reviews of after market coolers the most impressive thing about the 280x is definitely the temperatures but there are no other cards with this same cooler but it kicks the crap out of XFX's old "double D's".
