This is a large, powerful, quiet and good looking GPU.

First - check the measurements and ensure it will fit in your case! Next ensure your PSU is up to it: It needs one 6 pin and one eight pin PCI-Express power cable - so with a high powered AMD CPU you will need a good quality 550-600W PSU, and about 500W for a CORE i5 processor.

Driving a single 1080P monitor this GPU runs smoothly with every game we have run from Skyrim to BF4 and Battlefield Hardline, at maximum graphics quality, rarely dropping blow 50-60 FPS and often in the region of 100FPS or higher.

The cooling system is quiet, inaudible at idle, and quiet under load compared to the stock AMD coolers. The sound is unobtrusive.

Very good card, especially if you want to run more than a single monitor. I wouldn't really recommend splashing out on this for standard 1080p gaming on a single display, as it doesn't really start to show it's worth until you push the resolution higher.

That said, this should max out anything you can throw at it ( 1080p, single monitor ) so it's a solid card however you look at it.

One thing to watch for: if you plan to run this card ( this particular non reference card that is ) in a crossfire configuration, make sure you have a very long cable. The heat sink shroud on this card extends out quite far so you have to bend a crossfire connector to make it fit.

Great Video card had a problem with the screen flickering on the desktop and in my browser but found out that the Xfx ati card is underclocked and the 2D Settings GPU 350Mhz and Mem 150Mhz and 2D Voltage Low 850Mv, Not to Happy with editing the Profile file, The ATI 2D Settings I have working perfect now... The Settings I use are GPU 400Mhz and Mem 500Mhz and Voltage Low for 2D set to 1000Mv = 1.0 Volt

All R9 280's and R9 290's Suffer with this problem so I have read.

Please Please ATI Put Settings into the Cat Overdive Control Panel so we dont need to edit the ati overdrive profiles.

hope this is of help...

- For reference, my CPU is an AMD FX8320.

Aesthetically this card is one of the nicest graphics cards there is. Performance for the price is excellent. There is very little to no noticable sound from the fans. Im able to max out every game i throw at it with averaging 85fps on bf3 ultra (i dont have bf4 but i imagine it wouldnt be much less). Skyrim automatically detected my hardware and put the settings straight to Ultra High and i never get stutter or drops and the game looks beautiful.

Other games ive played for those who are curious about games, are Heroes and Generals, Warframe, PvZ Garden Warfare, TF2, Quake Live, Robocraft, and Planetside 2, i am able to max out and play happily.

I haven't overclocked although it is very easy to do so, but really because it is already beating my expectations paired with the 8320 i see no reason too.

Any major drops in FPS ive had are on bf3. This is down to the game itself and are very minor. For instance if im on a large map with a full server and i drive a jeep really fast the fps will drop to the low 50's which is noticable for a second but it goes right back up. Secondly, Fallen buildings have an effect on the frames also. If i was to climb ontop and worm my way through the rubble it drops into the 40's and will stay there till i leave.

These are the only experiences ive had with fps drops and you can see that they really arent that big of a deal.

All the other games run smoothly and i would 100% reccomend this to anyone who is looking for max settings gaming.

A side note too that i have one of the larger mid tower cases which is a CiT Spectre and this card just about fit inside. I had about 1cm maybe less of spare room. If your case has removable hardrive/SSD bays then you have nothing to worry about.

The length of this card is between 29cm and 29.5 cm. Its a beast.

This graphics card is very good. For the price it is very hard to beat. I have had this now for a while and with every new game I play it runs it at maximum settings and a universal "very high" setting in Crysis 3 with not even a hint of stutter,

For buttery smooth, very high detail gaming without taking out a mortgage this is the card to get.

The physical hardware only just fits the Zalman z11 plus case but looks amazing in its piano black and dual fan arrangement.

As for overclocking, this card responds quite well and I day to day run with the following settings:
1100MHz GPU clock
5400Mhz Memory clock
120% power target

With these settings temps stay below 65% and the card remains all but silent in operation.

For the bang for the buck graphics card the XFX 280x is a good choice!

This card is a lot more powerful than I had anticipated. Also a lot bigger! I would recommend checking the dimensions of this card and your case before spending any money.

I still have to give this card full ratings, because the power pro outweighs the size con by a heck of a lot. The main game I really wanted to see work with this card was Star Citizen. I previously had the XFX 7770 DD and it did really struggle on the games lowest settings. I expected the 280X to have the game running smoother on the lowest setting, but no I have Star Citizen set to the highest graphical setting and its giving me about 40-60 fps.

I really do love a quiet PC and all the parts I have are really quiet, that also included my previous card (the 7770). Now I have the 280X it seems even quieter than before.

In conclusion I believe that for this generation of games, this card will be more than adequate for the next 3-4 years.
