Dont matter to me.... waterblock baby!
This is the correct answer. Although I heard Koolance isn't making a block for the 290 which sucks because they're the only company that doesn't charge 150 bucks for some copper and plastic.
Oh, you'll get your precious BF4 for that price. But not the DLC. Those, you'll have to buy separately on your own.
isn't this one a non-x
Gives me some hope of $450 or lower price for a 290 early next year.Yeah, that's the R9-290, non-X version.
Speaking of prices, Fudzilla is reporting different pricing from different retailers:
Pricing is supposedly $699 to $729 depending on the retailer such as Newegg. But, reference Sapphire R9-290X in Canada has one for $579 CAD. Then, 3 US retailers have the same card priced at $555, $608, and $616.
They're also saying the pricing could come down to as low as $599 at launch but pre-orders are being kept purposely high.
All in all, if it comes in at $599, that would be a pretty decent price.
