Hello all! First post here, so please understand I'm still a bit of a noob techie.

Anyways, a bit about my system and the games I play; as of this day, I have an AMD FX-6300 with a Hyper 212EVO, a Gigabyte Radeon 6670 DDR3, 8gb of Crucial RAM, an Asus M5A97 2.0 and a Corsair CX600M, all in a Corsair C70. My games aren't too graphics intense compared to Crysis or BF4, I play World of Tanks and War Thunder with a bit of TF2 and Minecraft mixed aside.

So that's some information for you, I've had my eye on either the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Superclocked (02G-P4-2662-KR) OR the Asus R9 270X OC(R9270X-DC2T-2GD5) for the same price? Or is there something equally better at the same price or lower? Sorry I couldn't provide links, on the mobile site currently.

Thanks in advance!!!

Best solution

I'd probably go with the Asus R9 270X OC, will provide more performance in a wider variety of games:)

The Sapphire Radeon R9 270x is perfect for the FX-6300.

Go for a R9 270x. If you want a lower price, go for the HD 7870. I use a R9 270x and a FX 6300, it's a great combo.
