Hi there,
Currently I have 300$ for the graphics card and I cannot pay one more dollar in it's budget,
I have two choices for the GPU, I also don't have a powersupply,
Should I get the Gigabyte R9 270x (243$) + the needed powersupply or the Gigabyte GTX 760 2GB and wait for 3 months to actually use it and have the psu & does the gtx 760 deserve waiting? (I mean the performance)

i would go for Radeon 270, definitely cheaper
you can adjust the clock speed to match 270x

Though the gtx 760 has the edge theirs not a large difference between them

Suztera's combo looks good. The R9 280 is on par or maybe even slightly better than the 760 and overclocks really well

R9 280 overclocked will be much better than R9 270 OC.

The R9 280 costs 311$ in my country & the xfx 550 costs 84$
So I can't go for it

I can afford the Gigabyte edition,
But there's no much difference between the 760 and 270x right?

At most like 9 to 10 percent

I don't think you should torture yourself for 3 months just to get it

You can game pretty much every modern game even now on high+ settings with a stable 50-80 framerate at 1080p with a 270X, in terms of longevity however, that depends on what you're looking to get out of the card. The next gen stuff is very very VRAM whoring (Even on 1080p) and dependent if you take a look at the horribly ported Watch Dogs, and if that's the staple of next-gen console ports, you never know.

Maybe the patient game and holding off for the much better 280 with a psu would suffice. I mean, if you have a rig that's good enough for now, to run anything even less than decently, I'd wait. If this is a new gaming rig altogether grabbing it right now would not be such a bad idea (:

Good luck & Have fun with your purchases, anything 270X and up will be very enjoyable for you
