If you're going to do video recording, encoding, 3D gaming or a Gsync monitor, get the 770.

Otherwise the 280x Toxic will probably perform better in general with more vram and better performance scaling with the overclock.

I'd go with what ever is cheaper or has a game bundle that sweetens the pot. If you plan on SLI/CF and have the rig for it, I'd pick the 770. Otherwise, you can't go wrong. Both cards are rebags and there is a ton of information about how to max them out. IMO the AMD pick would be more fun to play with.

AMD's Mantel program is what had me stick with AMD for now (7970 directcu II). The gsync monitor is not as attractive because it requires a new monitor and AMD has stated that they are looking into matching it.

Anyhow, get the cheaper of the two.

Yeah i look for CF or SLI in future and OC if my PC gone slow.

Get the 770 then. SLI has less issues than Crossfire. Just make sure your motherboard allows you to SLI :)

take a look at this board Asus M4A99FX PRO: http://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/M5A99FX_PRO_R20/

I play assassin's creed, BF, Call of duty, GTA. I play any game and every game so it looks the gtx 770 best choose for me.

So long as you SLI sooner than later, then ya 770 is the way to go.

Problem is by the time most want to SLI it is usually better to sell the old card and get a new one based on new tech. It is just better to run one card than two. There is less that could go wrong and games are a moving target. With 4k coming around GPU ram becomes something to think about as well.

Your mobo link states that you can SLI/CF. I wish we had more information about Mantel. I am interested in how AMD CPU/GPU rigs will fair vs rigs that mix AMD/Intel/Nvid.

Your Mobo and CPU are AMD based. (you linked an AMD based mobo). So your rig can come out to have an AMD CPU and GPU. Or your rig can come out to have an AMD CPU and Nvida GPU. More likely than not, either set up will kick ass. I am just interested to see if a pure AMD build will do any better than a mixed build once Mantel's API takes off (if it ever does).
