HIS R9 280X IceQX2 Turbo

Conclusion

Award_GoldWhile the AMD Radeon 280X might not be the card to challenge GTX 780 and GTX Titan (that would be the 290X) it still turns out to be a excellent card for the money. Easily matching and in many cases beating the GTX 770 and still producing high framerates at higher resolutions one or even two cards in Crossfire will give you a lot of bang for the buck. HIS offering is nice since it not only comes with a great cooler but also is overclocked from the start. If there is anything we can complain about it is the lack of bundle of the card. No games are included and we do not even get a mini-display to displayport-adapter, something we feel is a bit cheap.
