GTX 770 vs GTX 780 vs ATI R9 290

I was wondering which out of the three graphics cards below are the best for the price differences. I can afford any of these cards, but I'm wondering which is the best value.

The cards are so expensive because I live in Australia...

Thanks in advance.

  1. For the price of the R9 290, what you get is clearly good value, and is arguably better then the GTX 780, I do opt getting the R9 290, for that huge price difference, it is defiantly worth it over the GTX 780.
  2. Okay, what about in terms of the software capabilities? For example, ATI supports the Mantle API, and Nvidia supports the PhysX software. Are these software capabilities even significant enough to worry about?
  3. Best answer
    depends on the game, in most cases, not really. Both the R9 290 and GTX 780 will perform quite close to each other, in some games the difference may be a few fps more but not noticeable.
  4. Okay, thanks for your help, I think I'll go with the 290 then.
  5. great choice, won't disappoint.
