GTX 770 for 329$ worth it?

Is this a good price? I can price match a bit and get it for $323. But with black friday coming, will there be better deals?

I would save a few more and go for the AMD R9 290, you get close to 780 performance for less. biggrin.gif

Ah ok, thanks for the replies! My friend was tempted to buy the GTX770, but with all these new cards I was unsure
post #7 of 7
Wow, I would buy it if I was you because in my country it is the same price but in euro's so it is much more expensive. The R9 290 is a competitor to the GTX 780 so it will be priced higher than a GTX 770 for sure.

EDIT: Another option would be a R9 280X wich is around the same performance as the GTX 770 but it is priced lower. So if you want to spend more money go for the R9 290(X) and if you want to spend less money go for the R9 280X, if you want to go Nvidia go for the GTX 770.
