depends what are your needs… if you planning gaming on 1080p id say gtx 970 is more then enough or if you can get r9 290 cheaper they have similar performance…those gpus can handle games just fine even on 1440p you can bump setting up and should mainttain 60 frames for next 2-3years for sure hope this helps

i have one
it kicks ass in 1080p even in games like gta v/watchdogs (60 or higher fps ultra) (some drops to -40)
1440p and above would only be fine for less demanding games like MGS V PP
but if you are really on 720p… get a 970
for 1080p it depends if you want to live with non-ultra settings in GTAV/whatever…
