Building a FCPX machine!

Hello there,

First post here but I've been nosing around for a while looking for the ideal GPU for a proposed Hackinstosh build.

Current Parts:

- i7 4790k
-16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM 1600Mhz
- ASRock H97M Pro4 Micro ATX board
- BitFenix Prodigy M Case

Now my predicament is whether to get 2x R9 280x's, a single R9 280x or bite the bullet and get the R9 290x.

I have seen that in the BruceX test that AMD cards are superior for FCPX so I'm left with these three options. The downside of the dual card setup is spending twice as much money on a PSU and having two cards in a relatively small case but I'm from seeing the BruceX test results, they perform magnificently in crossfire.

Has anyone had any experience of using any of the above options in FCPX?

Any advice or nuggets of knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
