It's unlikely unless a GK110 GTX 770 Ti with 1920 CUDA surfaces for $420 or something between $330 (GTX 770) and $500 (GTX 780). Until then, I doubt it will happen until Maxwell launch.

In Nvidia's product stack they have a few holes:
GTX 770 Ti (probably GK110 1920 CUDA) --- last rumors from early Oct 2013
GTX 760 Ti (probably GK104 GTX 670 rebranded, it's already been done for OEMs) --- spotted for OEMS already
GTX 750 Ti (a 256-bit memory GTX 660 GK106) --- last rumors from early Oct 2013
In AMD's lineup they have a lot of holes but the price range between cards at midrange ($150-300ish) is really tight as is.:
R9 290 - announced "tomorrow"
R9 280 - HD7950 Tahiti Pro rebrand?
R9 270 - HD7850 Pitcairn Pro rebrand? , a simple price cut of ~$20 would render this superfluous
R7 260 - New SKU that's a cutdown Bonaire with TrueAudio
. Otherwise there's no point... the R7-260X with a pricecut of $20 is more likely.
remember this? It shows a price drop every quarter
also updated a minute ago:
One of the biggest European retailer has just updated its website with the new Radeon R9 290.
Prices on PCComponentes are usually very accurate prior to the official announcements. R9 290 is listed for €349, this should convert into 400 US Dollars and £300.
Sapphire Radeon R9 290, which we’ve seen few days ago with a previous leak, looks exactly the same as 290X. Card is equipped with Hawaii PRO GPU with 2560 Stream Processors. Besides that we have 4GB GDDR5 memory and 512-bit interface. The R9 290 is a direct competitor to GeForce GTX 780 (the non-Ti and non-GHz version).
AMD Radeon R9 290 will be officially released in few hours.
edit 2: AMD hasn't even rolled out the BF4 gamebundles for R9/R7 series and Nvidia is already panicking with holiday bundles.Edited by AlphaC - 11/4/13 at 5:04pm
