i currently have a m17x r3, and have finally gotten up the funds to get another, question is should i get one with the 770m nvidia, or the r9 m290x amd??

I would wait a few weeks. Apparently, the GTX 860M, 870M and 880M are inbound for the Alienware 17 later this month.

Welcome to site by the way :)

was gonna just wait, but it seems to me that despite the 880m being faster than the r9, mantle is proving to pretty nice, besides, after all teh stuff ive read the 880m is a re branded 780m with 8gigs of gddr5

It's true that the 880m is just a rebrand of 780m with only a bump in core clock speed of 10%. Not much of a difference in my opinion and that they've improved video ram on it. I'd go with anything that's within your budget. Although I'd go for high end like i have done 780m style :D.
