How could we answer? You gave no budget and once nvidia drops prices even recommendations are pretty much just going to be if someone prefers the green team over the red team. Just buy whatever brand has features you like in the given price range you can afford but wait for the nvidia price drops (unless they have already started).

If it's a 1080p display you are using (99% chance it is) then don't bother with anything more then a 770 or a 280x. At that resolution buying anything more is getting into serious diminishing returns. Unless you plan to upgrade to 2k in the near future.

His budget is $530. And we're talking computers here, everything can be substantiated with evidence, recommendations are not simply personal preference.

Right now, the 780 outperforms the 290x, and is more stable, has lower temperatures, and not to mention cheaper. Unless you want to buy into AMD's new features of Mantle, TrueAudio and 4GB of Vram and such.

Using an HD 7950 and I havn't recommended an nVidia card in years until now.
