When you say OC, do you mean you are going to OC it, or do you mean the standard factory OC?
If you mean the standard factory OC that it will come with, the 760 is going to perform SLIGHTLY better than the 270x. They will trade off depending on the game itself. When mantle is released, I would give a slight edge to the 270x. The 270x is generally cheaper than the 760, also. So if it were me, I would go with the 270x.
I would say the 760 is faster "overall". But the 4gb in the 270x will be better for any future xfire. A lone 270x will never be able to utilize the whole 4gb but a xfire config will be able to. While a x2 sli 760 with 2 gb will be bottlenecked by the memory.
Like meest said, 4k will be needing a lot more than 4gb to play in any decent fps.
edit: I meant 2gb.
for future reference.. this forum weighed in on my decision to go with a 270x 4gb. I can tell you I did not see much difference between the 270x 2gb sapphire and gigabyte 270x 4gb. First of all the bit bus is 256... so as many people said it is just a marketing gimmick to use 4gb on a 256 bit card ( I disagreed until I tried both). There's a reason why the r290x and 690 cost so much; 4gb with 512 bit is insane. You would have been better off saving your cash and getting a r9290x/780/780 TI for the "future", as the 270x 4gb will not cut it. just my input hope it saves someone who likes high fps on ultra the trouble I've gone through (Metro Last light is such a great bench marking game).
