Which Graphics card should I get?
Should I get the MSi r9 290x lightning or the asus GTX Poseidon Platinum? I know the MSi card is $800 on newegg, but I can't find anywhere to buy the 780 poseidon platinum. The MSi card is slightly faster and the poseidon is a lot better for water cooling, if I got the poseidon I would probably do a custom water loop. But if I got the Lightning card I would probably just get a corsair H100i and maybe later get a water block. I do use after effects though so that's why I'm considering the poseidon knowing it has CUDA, though I'm not sure if I'm ever actually going to use ray-traced 3D. Does anyone know which of these cards are better? And where to buy the asus GTX 780 Poseidon Platinum? Thanks!

Well personaly the GTX is better... firstly because of the price. Secondly its well known for high end gaming. But I dont think you can find the Poseidon Platinum but I found you a GTX 780 for around $530 3GB DDR5 RAM. I also found you a GTX 780 Ti but it comes at a price of $780 (wierd right? same model name same price)
I hope this helped!
