my budget is around 15k in indian Ruppees, and Ati 7870 is about, almost fit in budget, but if spending more 3k for Nvidia Gtx 760, is that worth to buy?
how much difference of Performance,
Ati 7870: 15000 INR
R9 2770x (o.c): 14500 INR
Nvidia Gtx 760: 18000 INR
3000 Difference, i can expand my budget but if just for 2 4 fps, should i buy Nvidia 760 or 7870 Still better?

7870=R9 270x
Gtx760<R9 280.
The 760 is faster than the 7870.
Reasons to consider 760-It is power efficient than the 7870 but the 760 is not that that much powerful than the 7870. But the fps diff. would not be 2-4 fps. See here:http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-280x-r9-2...
I'd suggest getting a 280 if u can afford it.

If u can't expand your budget more than 18k, then get the 760. And if u cannot afford the 760, then get the 270x.

I think you can get a 280 around Rs.18000 from local stores.
Where are u from? Which city?

actually i was saying my budget according to Flipkart, in my area its more expensive about 4k more cost, Gtx 760 i m getting locally 20k but in Flipkart 17k.
i live in Ludhiana,Punjab,India

If u can afford the 760 then get it or if u can spend some more,then get the 280.
If u want to save some money and buy some extra memory,then get the 270x.

The boost edition is 500-1000rs. more than the normal version. It's just the clock speed, performance gain is not so much maybe say a boost of 7-8 fps.

Go for a 270 non X and overclock it, they can easily achieve beyond 270X speeds for cheaper.

The 270 non-x and 270x are very closely priced in india.

I think I would recommend the GTX 760 over the R9-270 or 270X. That card seems to have some problems. There are many posts on this forum about it. I think the problems are mainly due to inexperienced users. But I don't think it is worth the headaches. The GTX 760 seems relatively problem free.

760 is way better and is the best among the three(as is aid earlier) only if u can afford it.

Again, most of the problems were because of the reference cooler. There don't seem to be any reported specifically for the sapphire vapor X. If he can afford a 760, he can a 280.

That isn't what I'm taking about. There are many cases of freezing problems on the R9-270X regardless of manufacturer that are in no way related to temperature .

The 760 would be the best fit. The 280 is rs.2000 more in india.
And yes, spending more 3k for the 760 is worth it.

so you mean its equal to Gtx 760, 7 8 fps difference is huge on OC edition of 270x ? i think normal 270x and Gtx 760 have just difference of 6 7 fps.. ?

280 is expensive in our country about 6 7 k INR, and Gtx 760 is about 17k and 270x oc edition is about 14.5k..
its hard decision.. :p  atleast for me

Do a search for R9-270X problems on Tom's Hardware. Then do the same for the other GPU candidates.
