Dirt ShowDown sees the MSI R9 280X 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC perform slightly ahead of the XFX offering at all resolutions. That slight increase, though, is enough for the card to pretty much line up with the more expensive R9 290 4GB again.

Looking above, you can see that the MSI R9 280X 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC is the only other card outside of the R9 290 4GB here that is able to break the 60 FPS barrier at 1680 x 1050. While behind the R9 290 4GB at the lowest resolution, you can see we're ahead at 1920 x 1200 and in line with it at 2560 x 1600.
