GPU upgrade #2

Okay so relating to my previous thread, I've basically narrowed my choice down to either the MSI GTX780 TwinFrozr for £234 @ Scan, the KFA2 GTX780 HOF for £260 @ OCUK or the XFX Radeon R9 290 DD Black Edition for £240, also @ OCUK.

Been restricted to these since my budget is now £280 max and also wanted to throw an AMD card in there, just to see how everyone thought it would compare to the others; been reading through benchmarks, reviews, comparisons etc for a good hour now and it's just frying my brain so what's everyone's opinions :P?

I'd take the TwinFrozr all day, just because I think the HOF is a bit hideous and slightly too expensive for a 780 now. The 290 wouldn't really come into it for me, I bought a 290X for less than that last week, although it is a leaf blower.

Since your budget is £280 I would personally go for the MSI GTX 970 Twin frozr that way you are guaranteed to be able to play upcoming games for a few years its just my honest opinion though as games are becoming more demanding on ram on your gpu card

They're all very good cards and will play any game you throw at it at 1080/1440. If it were me, I'd opt for the MSI 970 or the EVGA 970. KFA2 also have a 780Ti for £288 on Overclockers, although it's a reference PCB.
