Its a good midrange card, the only other card in the pricerange is the 750Ti, which the 7870 is faster than.

The 270x is a rebranded 7870 and a bit faster than the 7870. However, if you find the 7870 cheaper than the 270x,then go for it unless you want to enjoy "Mantle".

Yes, AMD cards are priced better than nvidia cards.
Cost to performance ratio of AMD cards are better. The 280 is very much worth the little extra investment.

1. R9 270x is an awesome mid range graphic which can play games @ ultra settings.

2. But when you move on to R9 280X/290X, both are known for high range graphic cards and bit expensive when compared to 270X

3. Your question: is R9 series better than nvidia? Lot of cards have already lost to R9 Series and there are still lot more that have won against R9 series as well.

But that doesn't mean R9 is weak. It's a good choice for new and existing gamers who want to play @ ultimate graphic settings.

Overall, R9 is the right choice.

Should i just take the 270 x right?


270X itself plays well. I'm a proud owner of R9 270X and it handles almost all the games in ultra settings. Go ahead and have fun.

Yes, then you should take the 270x. It's also a strong performer(i can only dream of it).
It can run the modern games on high settings and with the 8320 would just fine.

Well the 7970 is twice or more than twice as fast as the 270x. So,the price is justifiable and very much worth it.
Well if u want towait,then you can wait for the power efficient Tonga GPU from AMD but it's performance would be lower than the 270/270x as it is to counter the 750Ti.
I'd say rather invest some more and get the 280 which is a lot faster than any of these.

Yes, Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Dual-X is better than 270X. It is worth.

The only negative side of this card is its price. You can buy this card when you are in top 20 richest people of the world, Haha :p 

The price is almost 2.5 times higher.
Also, you can wait as long as you can but the price is not going to fall down.

I can conclude this post by giving you out two valuable points:

> You can buy R9 270X and the price is affordable.
> If you can afford 2.5 times higher than the budget, then go with HD 7970 Dual X.

The r9 270x is for 161 euro

And the dual 7970 just for 180 euro

How is it possible,becouse you said there is a big difference on prices.


Lol Terky. You made me laugh. Look into the hd 7970 page carefully. It is a refurbished lol.

I don't recommend the used ones. Always buy a new graphic card.

I Have talked with support site and they said that:
A refurbished product, all those products are returned by customers without being used, or items that have been on display.

These products undergo a thorough inspection before returning to be placed on the market. Once they passed all quality tests, are brought back to the sales with all accessories and the same features as new items.


PD: Should i trust that answer? :(

Terky, I advise you not to take a big leap in buying a graphics card. Though it's refurbished, a quality of newer one cannot be met at all.

Go buy a new R9 270X which can seriously handle all sorts of high end games with ultra settings.
If you feel unsatisfied, save money and buy a new hd 7970 dual-x.

Our gaming desires are infinite so better be smart in shopping a right one for you.

Sapphire or MSI brand of R9 270X would be good as they have perfectly overclocked the card.

Don't get a VTX3D brand graphic card, The quality used wasn't great and they cheap out on some of the materials used. I had a VT3D HD 7770 and it had a lower clock speed than the reference and it was difficult to overclock on it..

The 7970 may be cheaper depending where you are, but in other places the R9 280X is. Get either of cheaper.
