The Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Sapphire TRI-X OC 3GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "TRI-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 850MHz to 1000MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1100MHz. The operating memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card should offer identical performance to a GeForce GTX 770.
