For gaming, the 290x is more comparable to the 780 Ti than the 780.

And the 290x was very expensive. I think I will just get the 780 but which one?

What are you planning to do with the card. For pure gaming the R9 290X will serve you quite well.

For outright price to performance you made the right choice, personally I use Nvidia because I like the extra features you get plus I really want a shield tablet.  :)
