R9 270X VS. HD 7870 GHZ Edition

I am stuck on which one to buy for my pc build. I was originally going with the HD 7870 but then I saw that there was a R9 270X for the same price. I read up on this and saw that the R9 270X has a slightly better bandwidth and I was also wondering how much of a difference this could or would make if any compared to the HD 7870. If there is any difference, is it worth getting instead of the HD 7870? :??:

  1. Radeon R9 270 = Radeon R9 270X so Radeon R9 270 is better, you'll save money.
  2. 270x is slightly faster sir.

    go with that
  3. For the same price the 270X since it has higher ram speed and little better performance. It is basically tweaked and improved HD7870!
  4. radeon r9 270 not radeon r 270x radeon r9 270 has the same performance for a lower price power consumption and lower temperature

    But only has one PCIe power connector that will limit OC if you want to do that since it will hit its power ceiling before clock ceiling!
  6. for the price rolli and i agree 270x eats 270 and has more oc potentiel. ;)
