Such is the stern nature of the latest version of 3D Mark the 290X DCUII only gains a handful of points over the reference card. However, the overclock really makes a difference. In Cloud Gate/Fire Strike/Fire Strike X the score comparison is 31337/9902/4945 against 32389/10828/5456 for the 290X DCUII.

heh, just checked the 290x prices again, no custom coolers on mindfactory yet, but the price is around 500 euros. so with a custom cooler it will be around 550-600 i suppose. at 590 euros the 780ti already starts, even with custom coolers.
that card needs a price drop, at 500 euros with custom cooler it would fit between the 780 and the 780ti.Quote
