get crossfire r9 280x or just wait for r290x?

[Build Help] Should I buy a 7990 for $500? (Private Seller)

Relevant info:
This is for my wife's PC and we play FFXIV most of the time. This will be for a 1440p monitor.
Her rig is a few years old (LGA 1155 board/ PCIE2.0/ i7 2600k @4.7ghz/ GTX 570 SC).
Just wondering if I should pick this card for her since the GTX 570 is showing it's age.
Also, her power supply is an Antec Truepower 750w. I've read that the 7990 requires 150w and 80w on the 12v rails, and 750w minimum. Looking at her PSU, I can't figure out if it's sufficient to run the card at full load.
Any input is appreciated!
HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
EDIT: Thanks for the comments guys, I'm gonna go ahead and skip out on this. Might just go ahead with either a GTX 770 or an R9 280x.
Thanks!

no post craping on this item unless you can find a cheaper one online

Pricing this one is abit on the difficult side but i figured i would start here and go from their.
This is a BEAST of a motherboard supports dual socket 2011 cpus and is the only mobo for this socket that will let you overclock them (bclk oc) I currently run dual e5-2670's on it and it handles every task i throw at it with flying colors. I have tested it with MANY operating systems including, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 R2, win 10, ESXI 6.0 (majority of time), and Proxmox (basic testing) all of which it was COMPLETELY stable. However, this motherboard does have some damage in both of the sockets. socket 0 is missing 3 pins all of witch are redundant I believe they are all grounding pins. socket 1 is missing about 5 and some of those are redundent but some of them are related to dimm 4. dimm 4 of socket one does not work leaving you with only 11 out of the 12 dimms. This is the only damage that effects the functionality of the mobo the only other "damage" is VERY small and in no way effects the preformance or look of the mobo. Currently this is the only on I could find for sale anywhere and figured i would put it on the market in case anyone was interested. This is used in my daily rig and i use it for everything from virtualization to CAD and gaming with zero issues.

would like to keep until i sell the sr-x as its a important part of my main rig.

[SCAMMER ALERT] yyhaoyue1

Hello fellow Verters, I just wanted to give you guys a heads up. I was scammed by user yyhaoyue1, and I don't want any of my Vert brethren to fall victim as well. Please pass things along, I'm now out $300, that was going to pay for family bills and I feel awful :(
Here is the blockchain info he ran the scam through, and probably others! https://blockchain.info/address/18P8FvYYuE2V6vdPrVGT8hiNt3NnLXQu6t?sort=1
http://www.reddit.com/BitMarket/comments/2147hx/scammer_yyhaoyue1/
Forged a Coinguard.org email. I sent the 280x to the address, and they responded with a "haha thanks for the 280x". Now I'm out of $300 :( I hope others have not fallen victim to this person. This package was sent Priority USPS , and was signed for by "H Yong".

[Build Help] Not sure which GPU to pick

Hey there folks, my friend has essentially given away to me his pc and I am happy with all the specs apart from the graphics cards, so I am looking to upgrade them (2GB Radeon 6950s in crossfire). I have a budget of £200 but I could be flexible and stretch it to around 230ish if its worth it. I am not too knowledgeable about PC's now a days so I am in need of some help. I should mention I am looking to do some hardcore gaming and play most of the new upcoming games at high/ultra setting.... if possbile :)
Here are the specs
-ASUS® P8Z68-V PRO: USB 3.0, SATA 6GB/s, NVIDIA®SLI™, ATI®CrossFireX™
-CORSAIR 850W ENTHUSIAST SERIES™ TX850 V2-80 PLUS® BRONZE
-Intel® Core™i5-2500k Quad Core (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache) + HD Graphics
-I cant find what brand and everything the RAM was but its 8GB ram
I wont be changing any of those specs, but I think its enough to run the newer graphics cards?
I was looking at some pricing and it seems my options are a gtx 770 or a r9 280x ? My friend mentioned possible a used 290 but I am afraid most of those would be used for bitcoin mining and would leave the card damaged maybe? Also I am not sure what all this business is with mantle and should I prioritise an amd card?
I saw this card for £230 and it seems good I think but I have no idea what brands are good for the video cards and it confused me seeing the same card clocked at different speeds and with cooling options. Even when I do pick a card I am not sure which brand to get any links and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any and all help :)

[Build Help] $1500 gamer, multi-screen capability, with some scryptcoin mining/protein folding/video editing on the side

I tried this in /buildapcforme and didn't get any response, but I don't think I need help from scratch since I already have an idea of what I want in terms of parts, so here's a shortened copypaste:
Uses:
Budget: As cheap as possible. I'll go over no more than $2000 if need be for the triple-monitor capability.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
If there's any specific features you want/need from the rig, please list them.
Do you have any specific case preferences such as a window or LEDs, or do you have a preference for low-noise components?

With that build, what are your thoughts on the 2x R9 280x's? I'm having trouble finding comparable benchmarks, other than this which only compares it to lower-scoring GPUs. I see them as providing a fair amount of number crunching capability (aka mining), as well as being still top-of-the-line graphics for gaming. I probably shouldn't concern myself with mining if I can get a better performance out of games with a single GPU for less $.
I've never SLI'd or CF'd and everywhere I see it mentioned, I notice people have problems with it or that it doesn't always work. What should I know about multi-GPU setups?
I notice a lot of budget builds use an AMD CPU. How much can I expect out of the 4770k over a similar AMD cpu like the FX-9590 or 8350 (a much cheaper one), aside from the marginal chance in benchmark scores?
I could save getting a cheaper PSU probably.
I live near a Microcenter. I'm guessing their prices are lower for pickups.
Sorry for the long post. I hope it doesn't scare anyone off! I'm just not going to drop $1,500 without properly educating myself first.
Thanks!
