GTX660 or R9 270X

Hi,
I am building a budget gaming rig at the moment and need some advice on which gpu to purchase. I have an AMD A10 5800K processor that I want to use to save money. After some research I have found that the evga gtx660 and the msi r9 270x should be run fine with my cpu with no bottlenecking. I would like some advice on which gpu to choose. Also if I am wrong about anything could you let me know, and even if you think there would be a better gpu for me to choose which would be under the £150 mark I would happily take the advice.

    your CPU will be bottlenecking your GPU in CPU intensive games though
  2. yup, 270x is better but if you're an nvidia fan then that one is fine too.

    Thanks for that, helped with the decision. Just been reading other reviews and I think I will go for the Sapphire Vapor-X version of the 270x.
