I currently have a gtx 750ti. Will i see a significant diffrence in performance from it to the cards in question? I have never used amd before, is physx compatible with amd cards? I have no idea!

you could buy the 770 or 280x and use the 750ti as a dedicated physx card.

you will see a large difference, and the 280x or 770 will be a very powerful 1080p card for even years to come.
physx does work on amd cards, but it wont be as good, it will run off the cpu instead.

physx only works best on Nvidia. Personally it is not a feature which wins me over. Whilst it seems nice it is not necessary.
R9 280X is better due to 3GB VRAM which games are now requiring 3GB VRAM for ultra settings.
Yes you would see a difference with either card.

open world games also use lots of vram

i say get the 770 it will get the job done @ 1080p just fine for the next year or two, you may have to turn down AA if you are going to play on high/ultra. But when it becomes an issue pick up a second card (they should be cheap by then) and you will be god to go.

The 280x and 770 are very close, it just depends on the game. and you are talking about a 5fps difference.

BF4 uses around 2gb of Vram. skyrim all modded out will still run just fine on a 770.

my laptop has a 770M, i play skyrim maxed out with 46 mods, and guess what.. it plays just fine.
