So the new AMD R9 270X is better than a GTX 760?

over this one:

So I should go with the 270X instead?

The 270X is a 7870. . .no it's not better.

760 wins in most games if you take it that the 270X is equivalent to the 7870.

I can't see those prices (Newegg redirects me to the .ca site) but I'm going to take a wild guess and assume the 270x is around 200 while the 760 is around 260-275. The 760 may beat the 270x but is it enough of difference for you to be willing to spend the extra 60-75 bucks?

Yes it's worth it

Ya I agree. For me it would be worth it with those prices for sure. Even just beyond the performance numbers I much prefer how nvidia's control center/experience work Vs. catalyst. That's a personal thing though.

This is the exact same conversation when it comes to cost vs performance as
7870 vs 7950 and 7870 vs 760

In those cases, consensus was that given the requirements of current games, the 7950 and 760 are currently better value. AMD renaming their card does not change that.

If you want to save money and get the most out of your buck you should probably actually go for the 7870 instead of the 270x, since that is only around $150 currently while having very similar performance to the 270x.

i.e. 270x kind of obsolete the day it came out.
