The reason I went with nVidia is because the R Series video card prices (270X and up) are very inflated right now, due to demand and inventory reasons. The R9 270X is a better card, but your paying extra for the demand and virtually meaningless extra 2GB of VRAM.

Edit: Proving my point, the card he listed is out of stock. Plus, the card I listed comes with a free copy of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag.
