If you want to jump into the new massively multiplayer racing game called The Crew you are going to need to accept either 30fps or with a bit of tweaking 60fps, that is the hard limit and that 4k 144Hz monitor you just bought will be quietly crying as you play. In a way that does not matter as neither the GTX 980 or R9 290X could handle maximum graphical settings at 4k resolution with AntiAliasing enabled. SLI and Crossfire do both work and will allow you to max out your framerate to the 60fps ceiling but is unnecessary for anyone who is gaming at a resolution below 4k. NVIDIA is the better choice for those who want to play this game, you will benefit from several of their new features including FXAA which [H]ard|OCP witnessed providing a much less costly solution than 4x MSAA.
"The Crew is a new racing game that takes place in a massively multiplayer open-world environment like no other game. It supports some NVIDIA GameWorks technologies, and we will see how it performs on no less than eight different video card combinations to gauge real world gaming performance across the board."
