    Default GPU an PSU Buying Suggestion !

    My current rig is

    CPU:i5-4570

    Mobo: Asus H81M-E

    Ram:2+2

    PSU:Generic 500W

    I want to to buy a GPU for around 55k.Sapphire Radeon R9 290x Tri-X was my previous choice.But reviewing those Asus DC2 cooler i am very tempted to buy that.Is Asus R9 290X available in bd ? If not is it wise to ship it from abroad ?

    As for the PSU i intend to buy Corsair GS800.Is it overkill ? Can i buy better GPU reducing money from PSU budget ?

    Do you have any intention of running dual GPU in the future? If not then, a 800Watt psu is slightly overkill. And I don't think you really can buy a better gpu by reducing money from PSU budget. But, you can go for a 650Watt psu and buy some RAM and make your total RAM at least 8GB if not more. And about R9-290X in BD, check here - http://www.globalbrand.com.bd/. And it's even better to contact them, since they are the authorised distributors of Asus products.

    Actually it's not. The sheer TDP of the R9 290X (which can go very much above 300W depending on the overclocks) the 800W PSU is a good choice.

    Go for it. Investing on a good PSU is never a waste, n00bz will advice you otherwise, but they don't have the slightest idea what's going on under the hood.

    I don't.But i heard the average power consumption of an r9 290x is around 350-450W.Ram is a very good option.
    Btw, the model globalbrand now has is a ref design with stock cooler.I need a custom cooler design like Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X if possible with non-ref design.In Bangladesh there's only Sapphire R9 290X Tri-x.Is it wise to get it shipped from abroad ? Because after bringing it if there is a problem with it i will be in much trouble.

    @matrixon , the maximum power consumption of R9-290X is approximately 300W. I guess you mixed up total system wattage of 450W with gpu wattage. Here's a link showing the power consumption - http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages...hmarks,10.html

    By the way, in the end of the article you will find these lines too.

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    • AMD R9-290X - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550~600 Watt power supply unit.
    • AMD R9-290X Crossfire - On your average system the cards require you to have a 800 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    I hope this solves all your problems.

    Do you have any idea what TDP is, sir?

    My advice will be to buy the Sapphire Toxic R9-290X (having warranty) instead of the Asus one and forget all the hassle of shipping. The Toxic cooler is simply amazing and cools better than Asus DC2 cooler.

    By the way, since you use a monitor with a resolution of 1920*1080, why not buy the R9-290 and use the rest of the money in buying a SSD, a better UPS, etc.

    There's not much difference between R9-290X and R9-290. R9-290 provides better bang for the buck than R9-290X.

    Of course you can. Check Binary logic, they have this: http://binarylogic.com.bd/cooler-mas...plus-gold-psu/

    The price they have stated in their site may not be correct, and may as well be outdated. Please make a call and make sure.

    And a little advice on what people tell you about TDP: TDP stands for "Thermal design power" which refers to the maximum amount of heat generated by the CPU/GPU, which the cooling system in a computer is required to dissipate in typical operation. It doesn't necessarily indicate the amount of power the CPU/GPU actually draws. The TDP you see in the reviews are from cherry picked chips, with very high ASIC ratings. The lower the ASIC rating on a chip is, the more power it will draw, indicating higher amount of leakage. So a R9 290X with an ASIC rating of 70% will likely draw more power than the ones stated in the reviews. This also plays a role in your choice of PSU, and this is why one should buy a PSU that has at least 100W room from the over all TDP of the system.

    i am just future proofing.Cause before completing my undergrad i probably won't spend money on GPU again.That's one and a half year.I can easily overclock it to get more FPS.I think i am gonna buy the sapphire edition.Thank you !

    There is nothing called future proof at the pace current technology is taking giant leaps forward.

    The R9 290X you are buying, may as well become a mid range card when the next line of GPUS hit the market.

    I will agree with GalibTheGamer on one thing: Buying the R9 290 over the R9 290X is a better idea.

    Plus if you are lucky, you could unlock the 290 and make it a 290X with a BIOS update.

    That was only possible for the reference R9 290 cards, which is impossible now.

    Asus R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 R9 290X DirectCU II OC
    Auxiliary Power Connectors

    1 x eight-pin + 1 x six-pin

    Connectors

    2 x DVI-D (Dual-Link, No analog connector)
    1 x HDMI
    1 x DisplayPort

    Form Factor

    Two Slots

    Pros

    + Flat
    + Relatively short

    Cons

    - Too hot
    - Relatively loud
    - Very tall

    Comment

    Asus' R9 290X DirectCU II OC has a bit of a problem; its cooler was actually designed for the larger GK110 GPU on its GeForce GTX 780 Ti board. You can see this in the image below, where two of the heat pipes don't tough Hawaii at all, and two others make partial contact.




    The five heat pipes aren't organized ideally; two have no contact with AMD's Hawaii GPU and two others only touch partly. Only one pipe makes complete contact with the GPU.
