Neither R9 290X or GTX780 are especially great at driving 1440p in today's most demanding titles, much less future titles - although the 290X is better at it.

I would save money by buying R9 290 for ~$400. It's plenty for 1080p. Wait until you actually get a 1440p monitor to worry about driving 1440p. Then, either add a second 290 or trade up to a more powerful single card - whatever makes more sense then.

Yeah i would advise the same. go with R9 290. best bang for buck. clock for clock R9 290 is 5% slower than R9 290x . the sapphire tri-x is the best R9 290 custom cooler design

I beg to differ, crossfire scaling has improved and surpassed SLI recently.

you can grab a msi 290 off amazon or ebay fairly cheap now, for 400 bucks you can grab 2 290 and crossfire them.

Thread Starter 
Forbes was just contacted by AMD saying the inflated prices on the R9 270, 280X, 290X are returning to normal.
I will most likely get the R9 290X.
