Just like in the title, this card is $399.99 after $100 Mail In Rebate
You can maybe get -$25 from Amex or Visa I'm not sure if that is still going on.

Either way this is a good value for the card you would be getting because it is DUAL GPU.

Right now Newegg's 290x cards are about $300 after $30 Mail in Rebates
Here is an example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

That one is probably the best 290x they have as well.

The 390x cards are hovering at around $400 to $420 after rebate and they are basically just 290'x with more ram (not worth the extra $100 IMO).

Here is a link to a Tom's hardware breakdown of the card:
http://www.tomshardware.com/revie...53-10.html

The card even comes with a Razer Ouroboros that currently sells for $109 on newegg. I'm probably going to sell mine but it is a great addition to an already good deal. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

Considering the card is not much worse than the 295x2, and only $400, it is the best bang for your buck for a dual gpu card.

Here are some things to consider before buying: It is a triple pci slot card, so it might not be able to fit if you are using crossfire.
If you have bad airflow in your computer, I would consider having a plan for that before buying this card as it runs hot.
The manufacturer recommends a whopping 1000w power supply for this card. So make sure you have enough power for it.

Can anyone reference a link showing how this compares to two 290x's in Crossfire? The Tom's Hardware article does not clearly state it. I have two Sapphire Tri-X 290x OC and was thinking this might be a better alternative.

Thanks in advance!

I could not find a specific article on it, but I can tell you that $400 for this card and $600 for 2 new 290x cards would make this worth it. And if you sell the mouse as well this makes it a no brainer for value. According to the benchmarks I have seen, the performance should be quite close. It is essentially a 295x2 without the water cooling.

We are talking about a possible $300-$350 card if you sell the mouse and get the rebate that performs just under the 295x2. This is a good card for people who prefer a single card set-up

I would suspect it would be roughly the same; the real question is, can you crossfire two of these?

That is what I was thinking, although after reading some of the reviews I am not sure I want to take the chance of experiencing some of the stability issues report, especially since I have no issue with my present setup (maybe the small oven it turns my PC into when stressed, but this card is super hot as well).

Specs says you can but the power requires are questionable. They recommend 1000 watts for a single card, does that mean 2k for a Crossfire setup?EEK!

2 of the reviews were driver related which maybe the crimson drivers that just came out could have fixed (not sure about that but its a possibility). But you could probably even sell your current cards and come out ahead on this one.

From my research you can crossfire these but only with 2 cards (max 4 gpu's). On top of that, these are triple slotted so your pci-e slots would have to be far a part (maybe even a 3 pci-e slot card) for you to fit 2 of these as they are thick like a Kardashian. To add even more to that you would probably need a hefty 1600w psu just to power that comfortably.

This person seems to have two of these babies running in quadfire so it appears to be possible:

Because they're on the same card rather than different ones, do theses still deal with microstuttering issues?

Even though both gpus are on the same card they still act as if crossfired, so yes, micro-stutter can still occur. I use to see articles about it all the time but I don't know if subsequent driver releases have had an effect on the issue.

I have a crossfire 7950 setup, with all of the issues I've dealt with, I'll never do a dual GPU setup again, on card or not.

The funniest issue I had was Farcry 3 would crash every time I threw a rock. It'd be fine if I turned off Xfire.

The stuttering is annoying as hell too. If you just care about raw numbers, then multi-gpu might be ok, but even with AMD fixing drivers (which take a while by the way), I'm going to stick with single GPUs from now on unless DX 12 does something miraculous.

would not recommend this. crossfire is plagued with issues and amd still hasnt done a good job of fixing crossfires frame syncing issue.

Not trying to take away the OP's thunder but consider that power color sucks as a manufacturer. Their 1 week old r9 270 I got has fan throttling issues which if I didn't recognize and controlled using msi afterburner during game play would've burned out my card as Temps were approaching 80c+. Newegg reviewers complain that the same card died early, I suspect this was the problem. I'll be taking it up with Newegg, but from those reviews, power colors support doesn't sound too great when people state they're waiting for their warranty swap for weeks....

Not only that, BUT the upc of the card I received didn't match up with the rebate despite it being clearly for the same model number, which did match up...
