his iceQ x2 270x vs his iceQ x2 7950 boost

Hi!

im going to buy a new graphics card tomorrow
because my 560ti died recently
i was thinking of the 270x and the 7950?
which is the better? (1080p gaming)
i found a his 270x for about $167(7300 philippine peso)
and a his 7950 boost for just $160(7000 philippine peso)
both are second hand cards the 270x still has 1 year 6 months warranty while the 7950 has 6 months left..
what do you think would be a better buy?
games : battlefield 4, crysis 3, watchdogs, skyrim.
thanks!

  1. the r9 270x is a much better buy. You'll get much more performance from it. The extra 7 bucks will get you far in performance.
  2. Best answer
    The R9 270x is based on the Pitcairn architecture which is what 7850 and the 7870 were based on. The 7950 should perform slightly better than the 270x.
    I own the 7950, and i can't complain at all. It's a sweeet card! :)
  3. 7950 of course. it's simply stronger. 270x is a rebranded 7870. even with 6 months warranty, unless you are particularly unlucky, 7950 would be a considerable better choice with good OC capabilities.
  4. HD7950 is better than R9 270x but difficult to find these days.
    Get HD7950 if you can find it.
  5. i still cant decide. the cards warranty confuses me :l
  6. I'd get the 7950 :)
    But the choice is yours of course.
  7. Hmmm.the warranty...well that is indeed strange.
    If the GPU is new, the warranty should be normal at least 1or 2 year/s.
    The 6 months warranty gives me the impression that the HD7950 is a second handed item with original 1 year warranty.
    The 1 year and 6 months warranty is also strange, I have never seen such warranty time. This looks also like a second handed item with original 2 years warranty.
    Usually I see only either 1 full year or 2 full years.
