Anyone in the market for more MilkyWay GPUs?

He updated the post with prices ($85 each for R9 290 and $100 each for R9 290X). I'm sure they'll go fast if any of you want them..

I don't think 290x's are ideal for Milkyway. They are a lower double precision ratio than a 280x(which is just a rebadged 7970 AFAIK) so they would not perform as well as a 7970 or 280x.

They might be decent on something like Einstein or Moo, but I'm not sure. I've never had a 290x.
