Its more than enough. 4gb isn't really necessary though.

Yep, you're fine there. With a little bit of tweaks you can enjoy on playable frame rates in next gen titles. Although you can also do it with the 2gb model of r9 270x.
Crysis 3 and Watchdogs might pose a problem but rest other games will work fine.

Yeah, you can run any game on at least medium-high settings.

Battlefield 4 will be no problem but not sure about Crysis 3. I don't think any $250 card can run that game on max settings :p

Get the 2GB version it will give little to no difference from the 4GB (you will only see a difference on Crysis 3). And you will save money!

Hope this helps

4gb will help a bit with Crysis 3, it's worth the money.

r9 270x is an enchanced version of 7870 with a 15% better performance so i think that it should run crysis 3 fine on max settings with everything on very high except the antialiasing i will turn that off and i will get a minimum of 35-40 frames per second.

15% performance? How? That is way wrong.

It has 17% faster memory bandwith than the regular 7870 so it should perform faster!

It is the same chip.

That does not make it 17% faster. Also, it is not faster bandwidth, it is MORE bandwidth.

Another thing, the 7870 can be overclocked more than the 270x, and that can go past the 270x.

Dude trust me the r9 270x is newer version of the 7870 so it should be better in theory!

Dude trust me, I know what I'm talking about. It is a "newer version", but it is just AMD's way of releasing something new to make more money. It may be better in your confused theory, but it offers the same performance, and that's what matters.

R9 270x is a rebadged 7870. Its sufficient for your resolution and gaming needs.
For info.,lets compare them.
R9 270x vs HD 7870
The R9 270x is 8% better performer than 7870. (source- game-debate.com
In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 270X are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7870.The Radeon R9 270X and the Radeon HD 7870 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill RateThe Radeon R9 270X was released over a year more recently than the Radeon HD 7870, and so the Radeon R9 270X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games. The Radeon R9 270X and the Radeon HD 7870 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.The Radeon R9 270X has 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7870, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R9 270X is slightly better than the Radeon HD 7870.

Therefore, you must buy R9 270x.

The 270x has an overclocking limit though, the 7870 does not, meaning you can push the 7870 further than the 270x. It also runs cooler and is often cheaper.

It's slightly faster than the 7870, but overall, its more or less just a 7870.

The r9 270x in performance is somewhere between 7870 and 7950 which means it is better than the 7870 and it can perform as close as the 7950 but it still can't touch it.So that's pretty much it in short words when it comes to the r9 270x.
