Currently, with the release of the 390, 290's have been coming down in price.
This r9 290, with rebate, goes as low as 199.99!! (200 bucks)
The only issue is the stock cooler, I would recommend buying an aftermarket cooler for it. But since I'm going to be adding this card to my loop, I wont really need to worry about that.
