Which one of these cards is better? By OC I mean overclocked from factory not by me.
1) Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 760 OC 2GB ($329)
2) Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X OC 4GB GDDR5 ($330)
3) Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X - 2GB GDDR5 ($286)

Also does anyone have a clue how many mbps the wifi card that comes with this motherboard is: Gigabyte GA-H87N-WiFi Mini ITX LGA1150 Intel Motherboard. I can't find it anywhere.

I think the third choice will be the best because the first choice (GTX 760) will be better by a few frames but that is not enough to justify an extra $43 and number 2 is pointless since 4gb of vram will only be needed if you want to xfire in the future or use multiple monitors

your post is wrong, he may as well go for the higher amount of vram as it is not much dearer and has plenty of room for explandability for the future, with higher resolutions and multi monitor setups. yes both have the same performance but add 3 monitors and you'll see the difference

Nope, the GPU will start losing performance before it will ever use up 2gb of vram

I will refine my uses to be generally around the area of League of legends and video editing also is the 3rd choice compatible with the Gigabyte G1.SNIPER B5 motherboard? I am not sure how to check

If your play at high resolution or if you use a multi monitor system by the 4gb card. If your gaming at 1080 and your not using a multi monitor system but the gtx 760. Here is a price performance graph to help you decided what card you want: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_value.html

I only have 1 monitor and have little plans to get anymore, plus the resolution I generally run at is 1920 x 1080. Also I was hoping that the 3rd option would be a good idea as the price is significantly lower, my rig cost is reasonably high and was hoping that the 3rd option would be adequate but if not I am prepared to go the extra mile.

The third option will not leave you disappointed, it will run the current games fine

Best solution

Yes I guarantee you the third option is the best for one monitor at 1080p at its price

if your tight on the budget try the hd 7870, r9 270x, r7 260x or a 7790

My budget cutoff for my GPU is $300 but I have read that those graphcis cards you have stated with exception to the r9 are not very reputable?
