  2. 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
  3. r9 270x Twin Frozr Gaming Edition is better for cooling and performance overall much better than the gtx 750ti.

    This is a solid budget build. +1
  5. Thank you, I can also crossfire the r9 270x?
  6. no you cant that board cant sli/crossfire. but your gonna have to get something better than the CX500. XFX 650watt Bronze 80+ or CX750.

    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.
  8. Ohh ok thanks. Probably wont need to crossfire anyway , but thanks again

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