Pros

Strong performer to this day.
Cons

Summary
Definitely has gotten better since I bought it through driver support. Originally bought it for cryptocurrency mining back in the day.

Pros

Fast, Quiet, Low Power
Cons
A little long, can be loud after 75% fan output
Summary
When I first got the card I had to send it back right away as it was DOA >:( After waiting for a little while I got my new card and since then its been awesome. Chance of getting a DOA R9 290 is slim but its still there. I love my card and I might upgrade or run XF in the future.

Pros

Good price and performance. Crossfire will beat a Titan X.
Cons
None
Summary
I picked up 2 of these cards on boxing day. For the price you cant go wrong. If you can afford two go for it. Crossfire will beat a Titan X. I get a 3dmark Firestrike score of 18000 on a 4790K.

Pros

-Great performance at a great price
-As of spring 2015 it is the best bang for the buck card in the $300-400 range.
Cons
-Can get loud at higher temps
Summary
Good card, nice cooler.

Absolutely amazing at 1080p game with all the goodies turned on. Pretty good at 2560x 1440 too. If you want to go 4k though you'll need two of these (or a GTX 980) and an 850W+ power supply.

It is not and overly huge card. It should fit in any mid tower case. Check the specs and measure if you have doubts.

They recommend a really big power supply to cover for crappy no name models. If you have a good quality 500-550W you'd be fine. If you want to OC I'd have a decent 600W.

(Overclock results: 1050gpu 1500ram (6000 effective)

Pros

Was only 259.99 with a 30 $ MIR
Very powerful card, on par with a r9 290x
Cons
Huge card
MIR
Summary
This GPU is huge, make sure it can fit your computer case. Also it recommends a 700w psu, but a 600w will be enough. Play everything at full setting on a 1080p screen

Pros

Good deal, dont crash, able OC even if already OC, fit medium tower.
Cons
Very loud over 75%fan speed
Summary
Bough it for 299.99$ which is the best card for the money at this time.

I did replace from a HD 7870 and I can tell the difference.

You can OC it to 1050, above than that give you black screen or buy a water cooling system.

The card can hold very high temperature, no problem.

I was about to buy the Saphire Tri-X but it won't fit in a medium tower. My case can hold up to 290mm, so the Asus was perfect for me (287mm)

What I don't like:Its very loud when run over 75%. If you play big games like BF4, you better get a nice headset.

Pros

In December of 2014, this card represents excellent bang for your buck. It performs very closely to a 290x and GTX 970 for considerably less money, when the rebates are factored in. On my i5-750 it plays pretty much everything I throw at it, at "Ultra" settings. I had a crossfire 5850 setup before and this blows it out of the water.
Cons
Even with the excellent cooling this card does get rather hot. Mine goes from 35-85C. Also, while I was promised a Civilization game, I have yet to receive the code for it, and it appears that this game has been removed from the "Gold Bundle". If you do your research here, you will find that others, that bought their cards from NCIX, have had the same experience.
Summary
I think this is an excellent card and it does get excellent reviews most everywhere that I have looked. It is both considerably cooler and faster than a reference card and has solid construction. It is a big card, and all pictures seem to belie this fact. At $279, with rebate, I think this is a better deal than a $380 GTX 970. You also get some pretty cool games with it too.

Experience: 2 Months

Pros

-Nice backplate
-Not much sag
-Runs under 75C with 40% fan speed.
Cons
-Mine didn't OC much
Summary
Great card, stays cool and quiet. It is a 290 so it performance is a given. Great card that stays cool at 1GHz. Couldn't push further than 1GHZ by the way.
