  1. They're the same card. I would take the Asus; it has a slightly better cooler.
  2. Best answer
    They bough are good brands on GPU manufacturing, taking care about cooling and endurance.
    ASUS is more renamed brand, and in this case has better cooling acording to the other experienced poster opinion,so go ASUS.
  3. The R9 270X is a newer version of the 7870 with a bit faster core and memory speed... like this one.

  4. I would not go for a 7870 but the newer R9 270X which has the Tahiti GPU and in most cases a little faster. Something like this...

    Has a better cooler too, but $2 / $10 higher price tag.
