If I was building a system right now it would get a 290x.
Other choices are 760/770/780 depending on your budget
How much is the r290x going for? I have an nvidia overclocked 550Ti, would it be worth it to upgrade for a casual gamer? I have been very pleased with the 550Ti in the 18 months or so that I have had it.
