Best R9 270x?

Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a R9 270x and I am torn between two:

I am running a XFX DD 6870 right now and I love it, and I wouldn't mind sticking with a 270x DD but I also love ASUS, could someone provide some insight as to which card would offer better performance and overclocking?

XFX (Also comes with BF4):

Thanks,

    Why don't you get a HD 7870 isntead ? It's not as good , but it comes with 2 free games.

    The HD 7870 qualifies for the silver class rewards

    Here's a HD 7870. It's $180 after rebates

    I have considered this but I would rather just get a 270x to get the extra performance.
  3. Which did you go for in the end as I too am not sure?
  4. If you want the best : performance, oc potential, cooling solution and quality get the toxic if you want to pay a bit more to get it.
