I am trying to decide, and I see so many things say that AMD is better than Nvidia c/p right now, but as I look at actual prices I am not so sure. I think my budget is $350 max, but I have a 750w power supply so I can SLI a 760 or similar watt card in the future. Here are the current prices in Canada (where I live):
7970 (non GHz) - 310
7950 - 345
280x - 325
7870 XT - 245
290 - 450
770 2GB - 330
770 4GB - 400
760 2GB - 260
760 4GB - 290

What is my best option?

I'd go with the 280x, a select few games are starting to push the 2gb vram at 1080p. So in about a year or two the 770 might have more trouble than a 280x.

I'd go for the MSI GTX 770 2GB

Would it be better to get a 760 4 GB and SLI it in a year or two? Since we are talking longevity and I will be making more money xD

I might just wait for boxing day sales

The 280x is a lot faster than a 760 and when you push a 760 at 1080p, it's not the vram that will hold it back, but the gpu itself. Pretty much the 760 4gb is meant to be sli'd for high res gaming.
