    On most games yes the 780ti SLI will be best. Not exactly sure where you got 47% from but 290x crossfire does better than that in all the games tested in reviews I've read. However you might start to run into vram limits if you are gaming on multiple screens or uber-ultra resolution (also future gaming), this is where the 4GB of the 290x will come in handy. Also the 780ti's overclock like beasts so they should have a comfortable lead over the 290x that doesn't overclock as nicely.

    This has comparisons with some of the top performing custom cooled cards (780ti, 290x), check other pages for other info.

    http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/64705-gigabyte-radeon-r9-290x-windforce-oc/?page=11

    The other 290x to compare is the gigabyte WF OC as it performs better than the sapphire (at factory oc that is).

    If it were my money I would get a 780ti from MSI (the one reviewed here), or if I planned on gaming on multiple screens or at some crazy resolutions then I would probably get a Gigabyte 290x windforce OC.

    I got the 47% upscale from the Crossfire 290X review right here on techpowerup. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/R9_290X_CrossFire/23.html

    Right now I'm just playing on 1080p and don't have plans on going for higher resolution but that may change in the future.

    I agree with you though about the MSI 780 ti. It's probably what I will get.

    I'll check out that link you posted now. Thanks

    Ah it looks like a few games in that review performed terribly with crossfire (it doesn't even look like the second card did anything in a couple of them D: ) hence why it brought down the overall performance. Most games used crossfire well though.

    Definitely is a nice card - I have been a fan of the Twin Frozr coolers for years now, and they only keep getting better :)

    The 780Ti is without a doubt faster than a 290x but it comes at a higher price,if you can afford it then the go for the 780Ti.

    So what's the rub on the warranty? Does it cover replacing the TIM?

    Im up to 1250/7500 BF4 stable w/ temps of 67C (room temp 25C) @ 1900 RPM fan speed, so I couldn't be happier.

    The price for the Aftermarket cooler R9s is also $700. So the price is the same right now. Which gives me even more reason to go for the 780 ti.

    At this point the only other thing that has me still considering the AMD is the fact that I just read an article that states Mantle gives Battlefield 4 a 45% increase in performance.
    Between Mantle and AMD being in the new consoles, people are talking about AMD being the future of gaming.

    what ya think?

    Thanks in part to your excellent review, I have just replaced my two aging EVGA 480gtx cards with two MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Gaming cards. I have not even fired up a game yet (about to ) and the two major differences I notice right off the top is these cards run much cooler and much quieter. Thanks for your many excellent product reviews, keep them coming.

    ha I was gonna ask if there would be a review of the 780 ti classified. The cards priced at $799 and review says fans are loud. I don't think the 2 fps the classy gets over this card is worth all that.

    I'm assuming it costs more because it's the fastest. 100 bucks more and louder fans for 2fps more. No thanks

    I don't really get that 9,9 again, it's like if you are silent then you get a lot of bonus points :lovetpu:
    anyways:

    Friend of mine has his Classy @ 1450. Granted he needed 100% fan to do it...which I would never be able to put up with, lol. I've only had my MSI card for a few days, but it stomps the ACX cooler into the ground.

    Hi, first time poster, long time fan of techpowerup. Just wanted to ask if VRM temps on this card are worrying. I'm extensively researching the 780ti customs and it seems that this one has a high VRM of 90, whereas others are 80-87. Wondering if that matters.

    I'm after the quietest, yet still fast. Is this card better than the Gigabyte 780ti Ghz in that regard? Thanks. :)

    Hi! I bought this card very recently, and it's amazing in terms of performance and sound levels. But the issue I'm having is, that there is a pretty loud "klonking" sound every 6.7 seconds when the card is idling. Does anyone know where it comes from, whether it's dangerous and if it can be fixed or if I should return the card? Also there's quite a lot of coile whining going on, but you really can't here it unless you're benchmarking with your ear up against it. So if the "klonking" noise is a fault, I can recommend the card fully.

    Oh, and to answer the question in the comment above (Chetkigaming), YES! Even when I'm benching, the fans are as silent as an owl!

    I didn't notice any clonking sound, especially not at such long intervals like 6-7 seconds. Any chance the fan blades are touching the shroud? (stop the fans with your fingers to test)

    I tried stopping the fans, but the clonking was still there.. What do you think I should do? I'm pretty sure the graphics card is the part that's emitting the noise, since it wasn't there before I installed it.

    It is really silent (no clonking). Particularly, compared to the 780 I had before (and that caught fire). The CPU fan is way louder.

    By the way, I have the same "issue" suggested by someone else. My default clock is 980.
