In Batman: Arkham City, Sapphire's R9 280X Toxic is again knocking on the door to levels of performance traditionally not reached by Tahiti-based silicon. At 5760x1080, the FPS margin between the R9 280X Toxic that $300 saves you and the GTX 780 is around 2FPS.
Looking at the percentile and frame time charts, the experience in this game is fairly smooth with the same spikes across all the comparison cards from each manufacturer. The short answer is you get great gaming with upper end settings.
