IT'S A AMAZING CARD BUT I DONT THINK U WILL SEE ANY DIFFERENCE CUZ THE R9 390 IS BASICALLY A REBRANDED 290 but if you have a good psu u can crossfire them.

the r9 290 will get the same support of dx12 as the r9 390 and 8gb vram would only benefit if you play at high res like 1440p or 4k at 1080p 4gb is sufficient.

buh the 390 is more efficient dont u think?.. 95deg on the 290 is just a bit too hot for long term usage..

yes u r right but assuming that u already have the r9 290 waiting for the next generation of gpu is the best choice as your card can still run all games perfectly for a long time at 1080p
