Is the Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 4GB a huge upgrade from the MSI R9 280X Twin Frozr 3GB? The Sapphire VAPOR-X R9 290 4GB and Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 4GB should be huge upgrades from R9 280X and should play higher frame rates at 1440p than R9 280X.
You're talking about older Radeon cards here. The newer R9 390 series is a little better performing than the 290, and is pretty much equal to the 970 in performance (more or less, depending on the version that you get).

Here's a review of the R9 290 vs the GTX 970. The 970 is the clear winner:

Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 v AMD Radeon R9 290

And yes, both cards are huge upgrades from the R9 280X. If you want to stay with AMD, I would recommend going to the 300 series cards rather than the 200 series.
