Choosing a graphics card: ASUS r9 280x direct cuii top vs evga gtx 770 (gaming and video editing)

Hi everyone,
I'm kinda new to building computers and the last part I'm stuck on is the graphics card. Both cards perform about the same but I'm wondering what you all think would be best. The 280x is about 20 dollars cheaper but that is not much of an issue...I know that nvidia is better for video but I don't know if thats enough to make me buy the 770. I use adobe products such as premiere, after effects, photoshop, and I play games like league of legends, battlefield 4 hopefully, dishonored, skyrim, batman arkham origins, and payday 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (On a side note I don't really planning on sli'ing in the future and I only game on 1080p if that matters in any way) Thanks again.

  1. I would go with the 770.
    and as for video editing you'll want to look into cpu's and ram.

    Ok, I already have purchased the processor it is an i5 3570k and for ram I went with 8gb. So I don't know if that will affect your decision at all.

    You'll be fine with that processor and 8gb.

    The 770 will stil out perform the 280x

    you might however want to add more ram in the near future so rendering is faster.
