the only reason to wait is for custom r9 290 cards like asus dcii top or his iceq x2 to launch. should happen late nov or early dec. nothing beats the value of a R9 290. at the same clocks R9 290 is 5 - 7% slower than R9 290X. R9 290 is faster than GTX 780. what you need is a good cooler.

"Update: Based on your feedback, I took the IceQ X2 cooler off the HIS Radeon R9 280X and stuck it on our R9 290 sample. Cooling was dramatically improved. The FurMark stress test maxed out at 76 degrees while the card never exceeded 63 degrees in Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4. So it seems as expected the board partners will be able to solve the heat issues of the reference card."
