XFX R9 290 vs Gigabyte GTX 770 graphics card
  

I am going to buy a new video card for my computer because the current one that I am using has been dying. So, I am looking at two graphics card at the moment, namely XFX R9 290 and Gigabyte GTX 770. I was wondering which card among these two would give good performance overall. I want to run all games at max settings as well, so which will be better to run all the games on my computer? Thanks for answering my question.

I think that the R9 290 graphics card will be better compared to the Gigabyte GTX 770 graphics card. But I also think that it will output a lot of heat. In any case, I also think that both video card will be fairly similar in terms of price. I would suggest you to try the best graphics card for the cost fist and see which one is useful. The R9 290 graphics card comes in the GTX 780 category card, so you can see for judge for yourself which one is the best out of the two cards.

I would suggest you to wait for sometime and do not get any of those graphics card for the moment. I have heard that GTX 970 and 980 will be coming out in few weeks or something like that and it will also bring down the prices of all the recent graphics card available in the market. Talking on the performance side, the GTX 770 competes with the 280X where else the GTX 780 competes with the R9 290. So, if you dont have any problems with overheating then grab yourself the R9 290.

Re: XFX R9 290 vs Gigabyte GTX 770 graphics card

I am using the Gigabyte GTX 770 graphics card and it is the best GPU I have ever used on my pc. Even if the R9 290 video card is good but still the GTX 770 is a little better. Most of the Nvidia card are quite costly but they still have a good competition over the Amd Radeon GPUs. The best part about GTX 770 is that it consumes less power supply watt of only 230 wherelse the R9 290 consumes 250watt. Also, the size of GTX 770 is shorter and in benchmarks it gives good results as well.
