New to the forums. I used to be an AMD guy when I owned a Radeon 9800 but after getting back into PCs about a year or so ago I chose to go with two GTX 690s.
Suffice it to say it's been quite horrible. As far as driver support is concerned, it's completely nonexistant. The system was running great for about 6 months until new drivers and new games were released which has forced me to choose between playing new games like BF4 or CoD:G or reinstalling my previous drivers to play games like Civ V, L4D2, etc.
So I'm thinking of buying two R9 290Xs but I'm concerned about similar issues. Do you think it's worth it to just get a pair of HD 7970s and avoid some of the hassles? Or are the issues with the R9s not that common?
