Don't know off the top of my head which is better but Windforce cards have a good reputation.

Here are just some factors to compare:
Noise Level
Temperature
Overclock
Overclocking ability
Aesthetic

Do not buy the GTX 780; it only has 3 GB of Vram, a foolish amount for a such a powerful card.

So basically, you're trying to decide between 2 mediocre AMD cards? Did it not occur to you that you should get the card from the superior brand?(Nvidia)

I'll decide for you. Get a GTX 780, 780ti, or Titan. Simple. This shouldn't even be a question if you actually did a bit of searching and increased your knowledge

The 290X is a mediocre card now? What planet are you living on?

He's a troll. He didn't even ask what his budget was, and he's rude on every thread he posts in.

Isn't the 290X one of the best AMD cards you can get?

The Ti and Titan are like $800+... obviously they are better but I'm not trying to pay that much.

The 780 is not as strong as 290X... why should I get that instead?
