  1. I prefer the 780s, better GPU, OCs better, runs cooler
  2. seriously better for 780s?..but r9-290x 4gb memory :)
  3. Best answer
    Get a Gtx 780 it is same price as a R9 290x and the performance it a bit better on a single screen.
    But for $100 less you have a card that is about the same as the R9 290x which is a great card too:

    You can overclock the R9 290 to the performance of a stock R9 290x so if you are on a budget this might be the best option.
    But out of those two I would go for a Gtx 780 since it is cheaper then a R9 290x and it is a bit better.

    You will only use the memory when playing on higher res, in 4K gaming they perform about the same, but on a single screen the Gtx 780 is a bit better then the R9 290x
    Memory is not the only thing that matters for a graphics card.
  5. but 290x performance almost catch titan..am i right?

    Yes it is about as fast as a Titan, but the nvidia card have better OC and thermal design.
    TBH it depends a lot on the games you play in some games the R9 290x is better then the Gtx 780 and Titan
    but in other gamas the nvidia cards are faster. I would go with whichever one is cheaper.
  7. but if want oc, i need to have another cooler right?..so if i go with 290x..is it ok?..
  8. Your looking at 4GB vs 3GB, and asking which is better, now if you want to ask more specifically as to what you are doing with it, that might change things, i.e. multiple monitors (3 or more), gaming, video rendering, CAD, resolution, etc, but the basic premise of which GPU itself is stronger, which runs cooler, which OCs better, doesn't change...there's a lot more to a GPU than the DRAM
  9. so you preferred 780?
  10. It depends, now what system do you have now or do you plan to buy?
    And on what resolution will you be playing games?
  11. just now i got mobo msi z87-g43 gaming, proc i5-4670k, and resolution 1920x1080..ram 8gb hyperx 1600mhz,
  12. Then the Gtx 780 will be the best card out of those two.
