    Which claims are you referring to? I find NCIX to be spot on in most cases. There may be 3 XFX's but all the Sapphires are not mentioned either. Which I would personally buy due to durability from my own exp. It was more of a choose the best one that suits you video. Price, noise and esthetics are mentioned in the vid. We can all sit for days convincing the op of which and why but he will eventually buy the one he wants the most. For his own reasons. Be that perf, availability, cost, looks, pwr draw, support, o/c or brand.

    seems like the list comes to
    Sapphire Radeon VAPOR-X R9 290X 4GB GDDR5 DUAL DVI-D/HDMI/DP TRI-X OC version PCI-Express Graphics Card 11226-09-40G
    PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 290X AXR9 290X 4GBD5-PPDHE Video Card
    ASUS Graphics Cards R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5
    ROG MATRIX-R9290X-P-4GD5
    HIS iPower IceQ X² H290XQM4GD
    Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP

    its a simple issue but since the stock cooler is so bad one has to find a after mkt version and im wondering if it makes sense to jump to the 780ti but im guessing youd run into the same problem and instead of 600 youd be paying 800 for a "cool,quietest" version. But from reviews it seems that some of the cards above come close to the 780ti. I just need something that will "sli" well since i plan to get another when prices drop.

    P.S. why are AMDs 512 bit yet 780ti for ex 384?
