Hello everyone,

So, I'm getting a new GPU with a pretty low budget (Thanks to sis for stealing my money -_-) So, should I buy the GTX 750Ti or the R9 270? I currently have an ASUS GTX 650Ti 1GB overclocked @ 1100Mhz, should I even upgrade? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you! -Gameduck

The performance difference is not worth another $150+ , so I recommend trying to sell your current GPU. Find a buyer, then buy the new GPU.

I disagree the r9 270 with 2 gb of vram will be a significant upgrade. I had a Radeon hd 6870 1 gb (better than a 650 ti) and I noticed a huge performance boost from one to the other. I have two r9 270s and the only game I play where I actually need the second card is Crysis 3. I game at 1080p so for 1080p I think the r9270 is a great option. Sure the best thing to do would be get a r9 280 but if you don't have the cash and you want the card now the 270 is a great option IMO.

It's really a waste to buy a R9 270. There's nothing wrong about the R9 270 , but the price difference doesn't match the performance difference. If you can't sell it, then you'll just have to get whatever card you can afford. And yeah, the R9 270 beats the GTX 660

The 270 outperforms all the others listed and is cheaper than the 660 and SOME 750ti's.
