I am having a great confusion . I dont have the budget for gtx760 tf but i can buy the amd 270x asus or sapphire . I am using amd phenom 2 x4 955 be pro / msi 890 gxm mainbaord / thermaltake 500watt tr2 psu / 8 gigs of corsair ram .Please tell me friends is amd 270x is good card for gaming only with a smooth lag free performance ?
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.
thanks for your value able feedback frnd . i am using my psu for almost 3.5 years and i have only i 6 pin power connector , is it safe for me to use molex ? and i heard some things like nvidia performs smoother !!! amd does not have better driver is it true ? my last card was xfx 5850 BE . I am using aoc 1080p monitor . I like assasins creed series ,battlefield series , cod , castlevania , darksiders .type of games

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.)
