I've seen a couple other posts with pretty conflicting comments. I'd just like to know if the GTX 770 is really worth the extra 30$. How much better is it? Is it even better? This is going to be mostly for games.
Thanks.

As well, these are the cards I'm looking at specifically:

The r9 280x is beter. It costs a bit less and is more powerful(more memory, bigger buswidth etc).

AMD has mantle and Eyefinity, and nvidia has stuff like PhysX and Shadowplay, but you should not consider buying a card by the features it has(software), but by the amount of power it has if you ask me.

The MSI is a nice card, but I would consider buying a HiS or Sapphire edition of the said variant of r9 280x (more efficent cooling).

Hope this helps.

Not too sure on this one I personally can't stand AMD GPUs's after going through 3 6970's. On that note I opted for the Sapphire 6970 and had nothing but problems. I'm not saying that Sapphire are bad, I probably just had a bad batch but the first two melted the plastic cover when gaming on BF3 medium settings.
