Depends on the types of games you want to play, and the CPU you intend to pair with. The R9 280 is stronger in terms of visual quality capability, but the GTX760 brings better DX11 API software layer optimizations to reduce compute bottlenecks. In render bound conditions, the 280 is stronger, but it compute bound conditions, the 760 often winds up stronger.
