    Hi all, i am thinking of upgrading my 3gb Amd Radeon HD7950 to an Asus AMD Radeon R9 290 DirectCU II OC Graphics Card (4GB) for £209.99 what do you tech guru`s think worth it ? or should i go for Nvidia instead ? I only really play Assetto Corsa on a 50" tv.
    PC Specs :
    | CPU: Overclocked Intel® Six Core i7-4930K (3.4GHz @ max 4.4GHz) | GPU: 3gb Amd Radeon HD7950 | MOBO: Asus Rampage iv Extreme: Intel X79, Socket 2011, R.O.G| RAM: 32GB Kingston Hyperx beast Quad-ddr3 2400MHz X.M.P | PSU: Corsair 850W Enthusiast Series Modular TXM-850 V2-80 PLUS | OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

    You can get the new nvidia 970 for a bit more.
