Nice card, review, performance, and power consumption.

I wonder if fishingfanatic ordered one yet?

Folks shouldn't buy this if they have a 1440P monitor. 4K? Yeah. And at 4K AMD's CF profiles are pretty much broken right now to the point where I'd take a $1000 TITAN X over two $250 R9 290X's....

haha true but the last game I played on the pc was Shadow of Mordor in October and the rest has been learning servers/networking and watching a crap ton of series, My friends make fun of me for having the most expensive desktop they've seen and all what I do on it is watch SUITS while browsing forums :P
