    Gsync only works on monitors designed with hardware to support it, so if you plan to buy a gsync monitor, then yes. AMD has Freesync that is supposed to do the same thing and work without special hardware. Physx is used only in a few games, so if you play a game that offers it and you want to use it, then yes. TXAA...there are so many types of AA out now, I lost track. Both offer some level of AA, so if you want that specific type, then nVidia is it.

    When it comes to features like these it's personal preference as to what you plan to use and not use. AMD has a few exclusives on their side as well, Freesync, Mantle, Trueaudio, etc. You have to decide if you will actually even use those features and if they are worth getting one over the other.
  2. well both cards are same but 270x have a little edge over 660. Amd dont worry that physx and all stuff dont add up anything in gaming performance.... game on!!!
  3. Thanx martell and alphawhisky:-)
    I m having a doubt that. Whether my r9270x will b able to belt out d future games at ultra settings for the next 3yrs at least....plz mind that i dont mind playing in 1600*900 or even 1366*768 bit i would like the rest of the settings cranked up to highest....so should i wait for nvidia s 800series or go with 270x....i m saying this since this 270x is going to need a lot of convincing for me to buy....and i wont b getting any more card frget pricy within a couple of years

    There is no sure way to answer that, but the 270x should serve you well for a while. With computer hardware there is always a new lineup coming, but without an actual release date, there's no how long from now it will be and no tell how the performance will be. For instance, there were people waiting for Haswell, thinking it would be a big performance increase over Ivy. Didn't turn out as they hoped.

    The 270x is a strong card and should serve you well, especially at the resolutions you mentioned.
