Well, the R9 270X will be good enough for your computer, and even though your system may bottleneck the card by a little, the performance increase should be much more than the decrease due to the bottleneck.

The 760 will see an even more performance increase, but will also see a slightly larger bottleneck too.
But remember in both cards, the performance increase will be more major than the bottleneck.

No AMD and Nvidia are both equals as they both run games fine.
Also, even though I lean towards Nvidia more, I feel like whoever says "NVIDIA runs smoother" is false.

Also, I think you should upgrade your PSU too.
The Thermaltake TR2 500W is not a very reliable PSU, and the brandname itself is hit or miss in terms of quality and reliability.

If you can save up a few extra bucks, you can get a solid 450W+ PSU. 450W is what I recommend because I don't think your system uses the full 500W of your current PSU. (if it can ever output it.)

Here's a R9 270X and PSU I recommend.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Video Card: PowerColor Radeon R9 270X 2GB TurboDuo Video Card ($196.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Power Supply: XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($57.99 @ NCIX US)
Total: $254.97
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

550W leaves room for expansion later on, and the R9 270X is a great current-generation graphics card.

The Vapor-X series coolers are alright, and so are ASUS's cards.
They're both decent cards, and I would personally just go with whatever is cheaper.

In the end, they're all the same card and it comes down to price and performance.

No you probably won't, unless the Supply fails.
If the Power Supply fails, then it may be expensive, as it may damage your graphics card.

Though the chance of this happening is not substantial, you should be quick to upgrade your PSU.

If I helped, please choose one of my answers are "best answer!"
Thanks!
