hey guys i need serious help im building a new gaming and after reading , watching , and digging some reviews i end up confused and restless at night but here are those GPUs and some addition it should be

#1.Sapphire R9-290 TRI-X OC 4GB - this is the expensive one which cost over $440
#2.EVGA GTX 770 Super Clocked 2GB - cost around $390 i can save about $50 if i get this
#3.Palit GTX 770 Jetstream 2GB - less expensive among 2 cards above its $340
#4.MSI R9 280X Twin Frozer Gaming Battlefield - the cheapest almost same as #3 $330

despite the price i only go with performance and less problems such as drivers and graphic related to game some people said card #4 is faster and cheaper as #2 thats it i really need some enlighten BIG THANKS!

If you're not worried about the money the #1 would be your winner, but if you look at cost vs performance I would go with #3. Keep in mind though the 290 has serious throttling issues when it heats up. There is actually an article about it on http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/r9-290-accelero-xtr...

I'd say get the 780 or 290 instead of these, or if you dont hav the $$$, then the 770 4gb or 280x.

What kind of monitor do you have and which games are you going to play? I know that for 1080p @60Hz the 280X or the 770 will do more than enough for you, a 290 would just be a waste... If you play mantle games (BF4, Thief etc.) The 280X beats the 770 in those games and some others, basically the 770 and 280X perform the same :p  also I've seen benchmarks where the 280X toxic is 2fps behind a stock 780 ;D
