Hello Guys,

I bought some stuff for a new pc in this black friday and now i need to choose a graphic card.

I will use this pc for gaming (BF 4/AC 4 at the moment).

This is my options with local prices converted to us dolars.

NVidia (2 options)

- Gigabyte GTX 770 GV-N770OC-2GD
Price: $ 455
- PNY 770 Triple Fan 2GBVCGGTX7702XPB
price $ 495

AMD (3 options)

- Gigabyte R9 280X WindForce 3G GV-R928XOC-3GD rev 1.0
Price $ 490
- Sapphire R9 280x Dual X OC 11221-00-20G
Price $ 495
- Sapphire R9 280x Vapor X 11221-02-40G
Price $ 545

All the other models are more than $575 in my country...

My first option would be the gigabyte GTX 770 but im concerned about the memory. It is 2GB against 3GB of the AMD models.. This will be a problem in next gen games?

I have $550(in local money) But i don't want to waste money just because i have it...

Can you guys help me?

Here is the hardware i already bought
Corsair CX600M(NEW)
i5 4670K(NEW)
2x4GB Kingston 1333Mhz(OLD PC. I will change for 1600Mhz next month).

At 1080p the 770 is a good card. Seeing the prices, I would go with that.
The 280x is a little better in most games, it will be better at resolutions higher than 1080p.

The difference at 1080p is small. Go with either gigabyte model.
I prefer the sapphire Vapor-X, but not at the price difference.
