Which card is better for gaming performance a PowerColor PCS+ AX7950 Radeon HD 7950 3GB or a Powercolor AMD Radeon R9 PCS+ AXR9 270X 2GB?
Xbox360/One + PS3/4 + Wii U + PC = Awesomeness!!!

7950, it's the same thing as a 280
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

If you're going AMD, I'd recommend Sapphire or MSI. MSI has a nice twin frozer system that keeps the card fairly cool while OC'ing with MSI afterburner.

You usually want to stay away from power color, the brand has a bad rep as the 'cheap' (not in a good way) brand for a reason.

Sapphire is the brand to go with for amd. I wish they did some stuff for the green sometimes.
