    gtx 660 or r9 270x?

    what do you reckon?

    r9 is slightly faster and cheaper but then it doesnt have physx and stuff, will that even matter?

    thanks

    when I replaced my old amd 6870 with a gtx 680 I though I would get a big boost for PhysX,but no-I saw no real difference.the new card was an allround improvement but that was to be expected from a card that was 2 years newer.

      Isnt the R9 270x newer? I think the comparable card is like a 770GTX isnt it?

      I just did a check and here I can get the 660GTX OC $30 cheaper than similar brand R9 270x

            The GTX770 is similar to the R9 280x.

            The R9 cards have a bit more potential with the mantle API.

              Only if people use Mantle in their projects. Consoles don't support it and the PC market is heavily nVidia orientated, so I suspect games that support it may be few in number.

                It depends on if you actually need those specific features

                    I have a gtx 660 ti and both programs (UDK and UE4) runs very smoothly, even with pretty much vegetation I think the gtx 660 isnt so different from the gtx 660 ti
