Alright so my processor will be a i5-4670k on a z87 board and I'm deciding between these two gpus. There is a somewhat large price difference between the 760 and 270x ($259 and $209). If I were to get the 760, I would probably not upgrade for a while (year or so), due to it's more expensive price and when I would I would sell it and get a whole new card. Or, is the r9 270x a good enough card alone to get by and then upgrade later by getting a second card? (Christmas time)

I plan on playing bf4, skyrim, dayz, minecraft, thief and more future upcoming games.

R9 270x should be fine , GTX 760 performs better than it obviously.
But if your throwing that much money , put some more and take a r9 280x / GTX 770 , and that will let you breeze through at least 3 full years of gaming at good respectable settings on 1080p.

Save the $50, it is not worth it.

Also for $269, you can get R9 280, which is way better than the R9 270X and GTX760 and it is only $10 more expensive than the GTX 760

Thanks for the feedback guys and sorry for the late reply. One question though... when it comes upgrade time for the gpu (being the 270x) do I grab another and run crossfire or try to sell it and get a whole new card.

Depends when you would upgrade it and when you would think of selling it based on price you get !
if your getting really low amount for selling the card , just dont sell it then , take a new card of the same model no.
But eitherways my advice would always be to go for a single Powerful GPU , those SLI / Xfire solutions generally dont get me so much.
Your better off with a single r9 270x for at least 3 more years.
Rest is for you to decide.
