Hello.

I was thinking about a decent GPU in order to play especially Battlefield 4 and NFS Rivals. Also, I would like to be able play Titanfall, Thief and those Next Gen games which will be released in close future.

In my country (Turkey) Sapphire Toxic TRI-X R9 270X and ZOTAC GTX 760 2GB are exact the same price.(Zotac is 1$ expensive:) .

Which one of this 2 I should buy? Or should I collect some more money to buy a R9 280X or a GTX 760 4GB?

Open to any recommendations. Thank you.

The GTX 760 is a little better than the R9 270x : (http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-270X-vs-GeForce-GTX-7...)

The R9 280x and the GTX 760 are very comparable (the 280x might be a hair better) but in that case I'd go with the one I can get more vRAM out of. So, the GTX 760 again unless you can get an R9 280x with 4GB as well (http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-280X-vs-GeForce-GTX-7...).

Btw, www.GPUBoss.com is an awesome site for comparing.

The GTX760 is more powerful and the one I would go for.

what about SLI? If I buy a 2GB I can make SLI with the same one right? If so, I would go for 760

MSI has artifacting problems a lot and customer service is killing people according to reviews. So, I would go for Sapphire in case I would buy 270X

It was just an example to show identical cards in question!

Sure, just wanted to inform you. In case you ever think about buying though. Tom's is a dual way information sharing portal actually :D
