  1. Gpuboss is a Nvidia fan, Everybody knows that.
    I could have gone there but I want the people's opinion -_-
  2. Best answer
    Whether a card is faster than another is a matter of data, not opinions or personal feelings. Check the benchmarks: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-r9-280x-r9-270x-r7-260x,3635.html

    While similar, the 270X is consistently faster.

    If that site is supposedly a "Nvidia fan" and still says the 270X is faster, what does that tell you? ;)
  3. I have not one, but TWO r9-270x in Crossfire and they are great. I would go with 270x.
  4. The website says it's slightly better, all I really want to know
    Does the r9 270x deserve the 40$ difference?
  5. YES! The 270x has a 256-bit bandwidth vs the 192-bit of the 660. Also, the 660 has 920 CUDA cores vs the 1280 stream processors of the 270x!

    The 270x is a much better card!

    Anandtech found the R9 270X to average 20% faster, which is pretty significant. I'd say it is easily worth $40 more. If you've got it to spend, anyway.

    If you bargain hunt a bit, you can find 270X's that are under $200 after sale/rebate.

  7. You can get a 280 (without the x) for the same price as the 270x and just overclock the 280 to the specs of a 280x! :)

    I wish I had known how to overclock when I bought my cards. The "x" are just factory overclocks of the cards.
