I'm a Nvidia owner who is going to own Thief and BF4 both will use Mantle... hmm

Should I be worried? I am hearing Mantle optimized games will get 20-30 frames boost... :/

and seeing as how all next gen console ports are prob going to be mantle, I am slightly worried about keeping my 780

It won't affect the performance of your card. Mantle will just boost the performance of GCN AMD cards.

Though AMD has stated that Mantle isn't tied down to GCN, so maybe Nvidia will contribute to Mantle too

Mantle might be amazing. It might also be a whole bunch of hot air.
It's incredibly likely, though, that the biggest improvement Mantle will provide is CPU scaling.

I just played BF4 with a GTX560, and I was getting good frame rate at 1080p, I am pretty sure that your 780 is gonna be fine for the game.

Just a random thought, why do so many people hate on AMD? Nvidia makes so much proprietary crap and AMD actually tries to push things forward like with mantle. Like stated above, they're willing to make Mantle open for Nvidia, and have said its not tied down to GCN.

A: Who's hating on mantle? We hardly know anything about it, but it looks good so far.
B: I'd almost bet money that's a marketing gimmick. Mantle is built for GCN, so unless nVidia uses GCN, or mantle is modular, there's no way for nVidia to support it.
I'd love it if mantle was a modular API alternative that nVidia and AMD could both build upon for better performance across all their cards.

Why the hell do you want that Assassin's Creed game with the Thief name on it?

At least initially, Mantle will probably benefit old processors and the APUs most. Folks with a Core 2 Quad or Phenom II X4 might be in for a treat.

The studio porting Thief says Mantle can give 20% better GPU performance

However, unless Nvidia adopts Mantle, the studios must still make sure the DirectX path runs well. Which is why I believe Mantle will be much important for the low-end spectrum than for the high-end
