A single GTX 760 should be plenty of performance at 1080p resolution. I'm using one right now and play BF4 on Ultra settings... If you want more performance get another EVGA GTX 760 w/ ACX. SLI has very few issues and SLI 760's would be more powerful than a single R9 290.

OP its always better to go with a single GPU when performance is close. SLI scaling on avg across many games is 1.6x. R9 290 is 50 - 55% faster than GTX 760. wait for a month and and get the custom versions like asus dcii or his iceq x2.

If you could wait then you can get a 290 non ref BUT you can also go SLI. The 760 sli perform very well! Scaling and tearing issues isnt as big as you think. To be honest if your motherboard could do SLI then go for another 760.
