With prices that low I might as well buy both pairs for my two PCs. I can't wait till Black Friday for at least 100 USD off. I'll save $400 on the graphic cards.

Well, maybe you should get one pair for each of your PC and you can then tell us the performance difference.

Depends on what resolution you're going to be playing at, but I'd give the nod to the GTX 780's at anything below 4K.

From the reviews I've been reading, the 290x is on par with the 780 in almost every way. It beats the 780 in some games by a couple frames, and loses by a couple frames in others. The biggest problem with the 290x is heat. A single card getting up to 95c is ridiculous in my opinion. Unless you are planning on getting custom water blocks for two 290x cards, I would go 780s.

Yeah, as a furnace replacement, the 290's would be great.
But as a gaming machine, I'd go for the 780's.
