Radeon R9 280x or EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 super clocked w/ ACX

So recently I bought a Zotac GTX 760 but it was damaged on delivery. I've waited for a few weeks to save up some money for a better card and I wondered which card I should buy, Radeon R9 280x or GTX 760 Super Clocked with ACX cooling. It doesn't matter about the price (760 is on sale) I mainly want performance etc..

My specs: 8GB of ram, AMD 6 core, Asus M5A97 mobo and EVGA 600w psu.

links for both the cards:

    No. Even if it would, I bet your CPU is unlocked so you could always bump it a few 100 MHz if you ran into any bottleneck.

    This, I'd rather go for the 760 if you do not mine a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, or even minor ones like Dogecoin.
