Bro, in your original post you were trying to compare the R9 290x to the GTX 770 also. You are just trying to manipulate what I said to fit your needs now. Proof. You said you own an HD 7970 that's great, then you went on to compare the GTX 770 to an R9 290x which isn't even plausible. Totally different price points/power ranges. Not going to fool anybody here. They don't even include the GTX 780 or 780 Ti in those benches when they should. That is just a sad benchmark.... You can't compare a mid-high end GTX 770 to a Flagship model card. Throw Nvidia's flagship GTX 780Ti/Titan Black and those benches would change fast. I mean really, I never liked Toms Hardware for reasons just like this.
