Default GTX 970 or R9 290X for gaming?

Hello,

I'm planning to purchase a new GPU for gaming!

I got an HD 7770 but it's way too old for new games, i wanna play games (such as GTA V, Battlfield) on 1080p Very High Settings.. I was wondering which card would be better for my purpose?

I got an core i5 4670, 12gigs of memory...

Please suggest!

Thanks

290x is now a bit outdated.
But 970 is a beast card and such an efficiency is amazing. If you can afford it get it!

i think you should buy GTX 970 becoz GTX 970 has less watts + better performence and amd r9 290x has more watts + to much heat which cause ( boom ) bust

If you can't give a full reason why not to trust AMD then shut up.


They both great graphics cards but i really would pick R9 290X
but this is so much better then r9 290x

But it might not fit depending on your case.

Why don't you just explain what's wrong with AMD then? I've been using AMD for years and haven't found a single issue yet.

For 1080p gaming, the GTX 970, for anything over 1080p gaming, 290X.
That's only because of the VRAM issue with the 970.
