          Hi and wanted to say sorry to hear that your systems all got fried ..There were no surged protectors going to the systems ? How is the rest of your electronics in the house ? Tv,stereos ect.The worst luck I have had is my video card kicking the bucket on me ..I hope you are able to redo those systems soon .A good surged protector has saved my stuff more than once

                  Don't get a 390x, the performance/cost isn't worth it, it's really just a 290x with the clocks raised and a bunch of extra memory that really doesn't matter unless you're trying to do crazy high 4k gaming, which the card isn't powerful enough on its own for anyway (in order to even start using more than 4GB of VRAM you'd need some pretty intense 4k settings that a single GPU simply wouldn't keep up with).  You could get a 290x and overclock it and get similar performance with a much cheaper cost.  If $$ is an issue, the 290x is probably where you want to be.
