There's a thread about outlet pc in the general discussion forum but as you're only getting the keyb/mouse from them hopefully it won't be an issue for you.

Technically they should be around the same level though the 970 sports better overclockability.

What would you suggests? Get the better monitor or better GPU? But as you said the 970 and 290 arent really far apart so..

In the stock settings they aren't really far apart, but an over clocked 970 can reach a 980s performance. In the end, it's all your choice. Remember that the AMD one isn't really optimised for overclocking

The 970 is better imo. Also, for me reliable websites are Amazon and Newegg. I don't really trust any other websites.
