    Default GPU Poll Sapphire TriX R290x VS R390X

    Whats up everyone. I've been looking into upgrading to my next video card and I cant decide whether to go with Sapphire Tri-x 290X for $260 VS Sapphire Tri-x 390X for $400. I need some pointers as to what to get. I mostly do graphics art work in my pc, game, and photo editing/video editing. Please your input is appreciated as to helping me decide what to pick. Thanks

    If he does alot/some video editing and Graphics work then having TWICE the frame buffer(8GB on R9 390X vs 4GB on R9 290X), $140 could be worth it for his use-scenario. Its not all about "overall speed", It really depends on his workload, whether its 60/40(Gaming-Graphics work) or 40/60 (Graphics work-Gaming) in each case the answer would best be different, 290X for gaming at 1080p, even now is Just fine and its 4GB(And some have 8GB of VRAM, but they sit at around $380.$390 Range; At that point paying the extra $50 is justified) Frame buffer is still fine- but on the other hand, if its more of a 40/60, then he could greatly benefit from the small 10% speed increase and 8GB Frame buffer of the 390X
