Hi, I have almost decided my build, wich is my first one. I only have doubts in the GPU. Mi budget is around $190 (150 €, I live in Spain), and my options are the GTX 660 OC or the R9 270 (non x version). Prices are very similar. And of course other options are welcome.

This would be my configuration:

-CPU: Intel Core i-5 4440
-Motherboard: Gigabyte B85M D2V
-Memory: Kingston Hyper Blu 2x4 GB
-Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200rpm
-Video Card: ¿?
-Case: Zalman Z9
-Power Supply: Corsair VS550

Thanks for your help

the r9 270X is between the 750 ti and the 660 ti, but the 660 ti is out of your budget range.

i know, as i posted above :p  for $200 the best you could do is a 270X, but that is between $200-$250, so you may have to stretch a few dollars to get it. otherwise, the 270, 660 are good choices.

Go with the Sapphire R9 270 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I0D81OG. You're not going to find a decent model of the R9 270X for under $200 and the R9 270 is a slightly lower clocked 270X.

Just OC the 270 and you essentially have the same card.

You could also consider the MSI R9 270 Gaming http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GMGGZQE for a bit less.

Thanks mates!

The point is that I don't find a R9 270x below $200 in Spain, so the final decision would be between the R9 270 and the GTX 660 OC, or any other for the same price.

By the way, I have found a good deal for the R9 270 Dual-X with Boost and OC Version:

I have found it cheaper than the GTX 660 OC, what do you think? Is there much difference with the simple version?
