Default Took long enough.

^ That title doesn't explain anything about this post.

Today, sometime like 8 hours from now, I will get my graphics card. Took me long enough ehh? My original choice was the Geforce 970, however, NEVER did it go on sale during Black Friday, or Cyber Monday as a matter of fact.

So I ended up getting the XFX R9 290. It only costs me $220, which is a great deal. That power consumption and heat though.

The only problem with my choice is that I was going to get 2 970s later next year, which my PSU could handle. (750W) However now I can't get 2 290s without needing a new PSU.

You should be able to handle 290x on 750w I would have thought ?
