If you take away the SSD it becomes the same price as your previous one with the r9 270x. But the speed of and SSD is noticable

r9 270x Twin Frozr Gaming Edition is better for cooling and performance overall much better than the gtx 750ti.

You would need to upgrade the Mobo to a slightly better one that supports native CrossFire. I'm not as familier with the 270X, but if it produces as much heat as a 290X then you might run into heat issues if you crossfire them.

If you get a few good coolers it should do the job though. :)
