Conclusion why you should buy an  R9 270 X 2GB Graphics Card – AMD R9 270X offers very good value for money for Rs. 15,000. If you plan to play games on 1600*900 or 1920*1080 resolution it is a great card which will get you 40+ frames per second on almost all the latest gaming titles like Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, GTA 4, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4, Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 4.

If you are looking to purchase a card for 11000 to 13000 we would recommend Nvidia GTX 660 at this time as it offers very good performance to price ratio in the current scenario when Nvidia has launched GTX 760 and is offering a good discount on GTX 660.

Also, there is not too much advantage of buying the toxic edition of the R9 270X or 4GB version of the graphics card, performance gain Vs additional price is too high.

Personally, I would buy any of the two whichever is cheaper at the time of writing the Sapphire AMD R9- 270X  is cheaper and fundamentally no performance difference compared to others.

You can Buy the Nvidia GTX 660 Synergy Edition with Excellent Cooler at Rs. 12,590  from Flipkart as well if Your budget is below Rs. 13,000 it is a great graphics card.
