About to order the parts guys and I want to make sure so I don't have any regrets? I can afford both so final question is, which one?

P.S I heard the 290 black screens, is it true?

290

I have that exact GPU. Never had a black screen.

Does it overheat?

No. You can set what temp you want the GGPU to work at anyways.

At 100% load for 30 minutes my GPU was about 80C which is normal.

It's no brainer but I would definitely go for the R9 290. Frankly speaking, online website reviews on AMD cards were never nearly as good as those for NVIDIA cards. It's pretty odd.

The 290 is definitely the better option. As for black screens, no. Some people may get a dud (something that happens with both amd and nvidia).

Of course the R9 290 is going to outclass the GTX 770 in this case, they're in two different leagues. The 290 is meant for playing games resolutions higher than 1920x1080 or monitors with refresh rates higher than 60Hz, whereas the GTX 770 is meant for 1080p gaming at 60FPS at the most.

A much more fairer comparison would be to size up the R9 290 with the GTX 780 or the R9 280 with the GTX 770.
