Question Graphics Card upgrade.

Hello Techies! As Christmas is approaching I have decided to update my very very old Graphics card for a slightly better one.

My current setup is:
-Intel i5-2500k @ 4.4ghz.
- G.Skill Ripjaws X 12GB 1600mhz.
- Asus P8Z77-V LX.
- Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 OC.
-XFX PRO 550w (might update this one also very soon)

Now I have couple of Graphics Cards in my mind and I would like your honest opinion of them.

-Asus R9 280-DC2T-3GD5 Radeon R9 280 OC.
- MSI GeForce GTX 760 Gaming OC.

I was strongly looking at the R9 280 for now, but I am not shutting GTX 760 of.
What do you guys think? R9 is cheaper, but don't know about AMD that much.

Default Re: Graphics Card upgrade.

I highly recommend saving the extra cash to get a 970. It really is worth it.

Otherwise I'd stick with the 760.
