The 270x is a great option if you're on a budget and what decent performance still. A slightly better value is the 7870 Ghz edition. They are the predecessor to the 270x. The 270x is a littloe easier to find these days, but the 7870 is almost as good for a lower price. The 270x runs most modern games at at least high settings with solid frame-rates. It would be my first choice for a budget PC.
