Depends on your budget no? I'm hardly an expert but from what I gather the 970 is phenomenal. If you take advantage of the Redline offer (I'm guessing you're referencing that) then I'd say you're getting a pretty darn good deal on the 290 - finding a used 970 at that price ain't gonna be easy. I'm using an older R9 290 and it is amazing - just hot and power hungry although the versions above are cooler.

I would say the R9 290 is the better deal considering the price. And the prices will surely drop when the R9 3xx series come out.But there will be price drop from nvidia as well(like they did with 770s). Finally there will be GTX 980Ti which will outperform everything. ;D

Go with the cheaper option. They perform neck and neck. Both will be good enough for 1080p for a while.
