AMD 280x and mantle because its cheaper, 3gb ddr5 and Matle support.

GTX 770 is more expensive, 2gbDDR5, a lot more expensive with 4gb ddr5. both cards were almost on par with each other, but when matle comes it promised to give a significant boost on gaming so I guess it will beat gtx 770 with only a small margin.

recording softwares and hardwares are there before shadowplay and working properly, Nvdia just enhance it and make it better.

so the wiser choice will be r9 280x IMHO. But you'll never be wrong with either of them.

Hard decision, AMD has mantle, But i know SLI is more stable. I think amd fixed issues with frame pacing or whatever its called (haven gone to far into dual card set ups since i cant even afford them) But then again a 280x is just a rebranded 7970 with mantle put into it.

Edit: 280X does have better memory bandwith overall though and its 384 bit and Floating point perfomance is better.
