Need help picking a gpu under 200 dollars to run with a fx 6300 on a asus m5a97 mobo, 8gbs of gskill rip jaws ram,a 1Tb wd HDD, and a 500w corsair psu. i was thinking about the r7 260x but i want best bang for buck. i will mostly be buying parts from my local retail canada computers, so something from there would be good.

Depends on how you want to go, for new, a 270x would probably be your best bet, of if you are willing to go used, I snagged a 280x on ebay for $175 recently. It was used but honestly who cares unless the person like overlocked the hell out of it maybe.

It means double dissipation, basically it means it has 2 fans and that is all.

I cant find a R9 270x for a good price for sale in Canada, do you think the R9 270 will do just as good? i have this one in mind. http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...]

Between the 270 and 270x it's not a huge difference, if it were like $20 i would go with a 270x but any more than that and I wouldn't pay the difference.
