Default Crossfire (2x) R390X vs Crossfire (2x) R9 Fury X

Hello guys!

I want to setup some really performance focused gaming PC. Cash is not an issue just want it to work better.

First of all, it must be AMD GPU. Yep, I know that probably SLI 980Ti would be a better (and easier) choice, but still AMD needed.

Gaming PC with 3 (full HD/WQHD) or one 4k monitor. Should I go with Crossfire R390X (because of its 8 GB VRAM) or Crossfire R9 Fury X (because of better performance and HBM memory)?

Why AMD only?

Because of the LG and free-sync monitors.

I've used both camp's iteration already and it's just not there yet. Definitely not enough to lock me to the slower party if money isn't an issue.
