    thats the thing,if you make videos that id go for nvideas shadowplay,but the r9 290 is faster,lets say in bf4 it is way faster,what games do you play? do you record much? and i am waiting for mantle right now,it should come in a couple of days..lets see! and all the consoles use AMD so games will run better on AMD ,keep that in mind.

    Battlefield 4 was developed specifically for AMD cards. You'll lose a big percentage by going with the 780.

    If you don't mind losing 20 FPS, and you like to record videos, go with the 780.

    They are both very close, few FPS on side of each other.
    TrueAudio, Mantle and other stuff are reasons why I'd get the 290.
    Plus, the cheapest 290 TRI-X is around 90-100$ cheaper then the 780(and is way more OC-able)..(I'm talking about prices here)
