470 uses less power (the 290X can get to 250W or higher which would make me uncomfortable about your PSU) and still has driver support. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

Isn't the sapphire Tri-X really large? I would be surprised if it could fit inside the dell precision chassis easily. 

 

Like the others I recommend the RX 470, or if you find a good deal, a 570 as well, or a GTX 970.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

The RX 470 is a much better choice for that system. The T3500 has a decent power supply, but it only has one PCIE power cable, and you wouldn't want to adapt SATA power connectors to run a card that uses as much power as the R9 290.
