Were you not given a 290 review sample

AMD are making things awkward.
Put out a Asus ROG motherboard review out instead rofl.

I don't believe I ever said the cooler was great, in fact I've said the opposite just now.

Time to wait for the aftermarket coolers. Maybe AMD have realized the errors of their ways? all I can say is HURRY UP I WANT TO BUY A NEW CARD OR TWO AND I'D LIKE TO NOT WASTE MONEY DOING IT. I don't care if it is either AMD or Nvidia, as long as it has enough grunt for me I'll be happy.

Cracking price for the 290, but I'm eagerly awaiting the aftermarket variants before I pounce.

Wonder if any aftermarket coolers are coming out for the 290x AND 290 at the same time? From my understanding they use the same PCB layout so should be easy?

According to other reviewers it is definitely worth its money. The new price to performance card with an immense amount of power under the hood.

The way things stand at the moment neither AMD or NVidia have the faster single GPU and this won't change when the 780ti arrives.

The AMD cards do some things well, NVidia cards do other things well. What it comes down to is which one suits the games you play the best.
