The R9 290 is much stronger but its stock cooler is the worst(too hot and too loud)
but the GTX 770 has got much better cooling but less performance
so, if you can change the stock cooler of the R9 290 for an Arctci Accelero Xtreme III then go with it otherwise go for the GTX 770

This is offtopic but just buy GTX 780..which is cheaper that amd 290. Buy EVga model for nvidia 780.

Thank you very much for the reply guys. Really appreciate it.
The reason i'm choosing between the 2 is because my budget for a new video card is $400-500, $600 at max and this is the only 4gb i found.

I dont know how to pick videocards especially performance wise i just look for bigger gb.

Thank you in advance

Also looking for a recommendation.

With such a budget, you should leave options like 770 and 280x (just to say something) behind and start looking at 780, 290, and maybe even 290x or 780ti depending on your country.

If i were you i'd go with a 290 non reference, but tho one you linked is way too expensive. If you take your time you would be able to find one priced a whole lot lower, again, depending from your country.

A 780 is also a very good option btw. in the end it's what you like the most as far as price, looks and availability goes.

Cheers
