Here's a comparison not sure which one is the card you're posting about though
GIGABYTE- I found some useful information and would like to share with you

Likely included with the drivers. Think I should go for it?

Hi,
I haven't seen or found many reviews of it besides the ones on Newegg :/
Possibly that's because the line wasn't all that popular ?

I was looking at the one with the 1025MHz clock.

I read up on reviews of the R9 and many people have issues with system shutdown and unnecessary card heat even while idling. Think I'll pass on that... :/

R9 in general are very hot running cards. They also are not very efficient as the 900 line atm. They 390 is a slightly rebadged 290 series card but they have binned there parts so that they are the ones AMD finds can withstand the higher clocks that the 390 ships with, you can flash a 290's bios to reflect its 390 equivalent brother and it will work but not as efficiently as the parts will be struggle or soon fails since they were never binned for that stress. I would recommend a 970 myself for what games you want to play and since you can only be single card anyways (SLI has issues too). Also a 290x will be cheaper now with pretty much same performance at 1080p if that is what your running I run 1440p and don't even fill my 6GB of vram.

I run 1680x1050 max and thought a 970 would be a good way to go. But I'm open for a 290 also. As you know though, I only have one PCIe x16 slot so only one can win.

Get the 970 it will be colder, quieter, and pretty much eat anything at that resolution. Your slower component will be the fx-6300 but it should hold its own with the 970.

I thought the 6300 was fast... (not like an 8 core though) it's been full speed ahead so far, but then again I haven't played games much.
