Ok so I have a Sapphire R9 290 Vapor-X and I need to know how to install it properly and overclock it right so I don't get screen tearing or issues in my game or black screens, etc. I've heard that it has that. PLEASE HELP!!
 
Make sure your PSU is sufficient and install, get the latest drivers from AMD and then run it...don't worry about immediately OCing it. Then when you do OC (if you even decide to) take it slowly, these have a pre OC already on them so no way of telling how much you'll be able to OC

Where can I find those drivers specifically? And do I install the drivers before or after the GPU is in the system?

I agree with him. I have the 280x vapor x and the card plays EVERYTHING on ultra at 1080p I never oc mine. Everything works great and I love the card. Best of luck installing.
