I was going building this computer when someone advised I switched from the R9 270x to the GTX 760. The GTX 760 completely beats out the R9 270x in terms of performance so I might consider getting it.

Also here is the link to the R9 270x Price - http://www.dabs.ie/products/gigabyte-amd-radeon-r9-270x...

And if I was to get the GTX 760, which one do I choose? (Cheapest would be preferred but is the cheaper brands any different to the more expensive brands in terms of performance) Here are the links to the GTX 760 on the website where I would be buying it:

I am also planning to OC the Graphics and CPU so is my PSU okay for that?

Thanks :)

PSU is fine and all the GTX760 cards you list are from reputable manufacturers so pick one of those.

Steering away from manufacturers, are all cards of the same performance?? Can they all be OC'd?

Since they did not open for me I could not look at the clocks except what is showing in the links and the higher the number the slightly faster it is, pretty much any card will OC but the quality of the coolers is often determined by the fans, basically if it has two fan cooler it will cool better than the cooler with single fan.
