They all excel in different areas, are you looking at hardcore gaming and no caring about the heat of the card??

The Vapor X edition would keep your card cooler than the 3 and yet will perform at virtually the same framerates as the others.

Whereas the MSI 4GB edition will give you twice the VRAM, in future games. They might take advantage of more VRAM to use for the games. However it isn't the most important yet, and I haven't seen a Game need more than even 1GB of GDDR5

And the Boost edition of Sapphires is really just the factory overclocked edition. Sometimes it could mean nearly 10 FPS faster in games as well as faster FLOPS as well. Though most of the time it would mean it runs a lot hotter than its stock standard editions.

My suggestion is to get the Vapor X edition as it would run the coolest and even if you overclock it like it's Boost cousin, you would be running faster and cooler.

Haha Sapphire does not have the 4 GB version of the 270X since your just a beginner, I'm not expecting you to do any overclocking at all. I'd say just get the cheapest 270x out there and you'll be set.

Okay guys its been almost three months since i made my custom pc with the sapphire radeon r9 270x dualX and i have also tried the other versions on other pcs and i just wanna come out loud and say that the sapphire boost oc 4gb edition (which i have) is the best and gives the best performance and anyone out there looking to buy an amd radeon r9 series card MUST consider this one .


Peace out :)
