If you are getting 39fps on Extreme HD then you shouldn't have any issues with a 270x for sure.
I wouldn't suggest getting one of the club cards. That Sapphire 270x I showed you for 199 is no longer in stock, now though.
I would suggest finding a decent card to match it like an MSI, Asus, or Sapphire.

Even two Hd7870s in Crossfire would barely equal a GTX TITAN...

Never go by brand, go by SKU


Also MSI has some issues with fans going bad, but their cards are more than fine. Their cards have decent noise and temps and the R9 270X Gaming uses the same PCB as the R9 270X HAWK. The problem with the R9 270X HAWK is the Elpida VRAM and VRM heatsinks aren't as substantial as the Sapphire TOXIC's.

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/R9_270X_HAWK/3.html

With the Sapphire TOXIC R9 270X you have to worry about voltage lock , although it's the best R9 270X (HYNIX AFR VRAM!) it has a very aggressive fan profile. Some VBE7 BIOS editing is in order if you want to play around with clocks more.

via http://www.overclockers.ru/lab/57833_2/Obzor_i_testirovanie_videokart_Sapphire_Toxic_R9_270X_i_Vapor-X_R9_270X.html

The Powercolor Devil R9 270X has the same issue, there's voltage lock. It also uses Elpidas.
see: http://www.custompcreview.com/reviews/powercolor-devil-r9-270x-2gb-review/19285/3/

The Powercolor PCS+ r9 270X and HIS IceQ Turbo X2 appear to use PQFN mosfets which are superior to Low RDS(on) but not at the level of DirectFETs. I wouldn't recommend either of these due to the louder fans.

HIS:

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2013/12/16/his-r9-270x-turbo-review/1

ASUS uses Low RDS(on) mosfets instead of the expensive DirectFETS (integrated shiny heatsinks and higher current potential) & Elpida VRAM. Every review I've seen puts it louder and hotter than the MSI Gaming (which is a cut down HAWK).

http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/zardon/asus-r9-270x-direct-cu-ii-top-review/2/

Gigabyte has the same problem:
http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/gigabyte_r9_270x_windforce_3x_review,6.html

Sapphire/Powercolor have the impression as "value brands" because they carry shorter 2 year non-transferrable warranties and are AMD-only brands. XFX is a value brand trying to lose that image. Club3D is a newly imported from Europe brand that's made by TUL Corp (owns Powercolor and VTx3D also). Gigabyte/ASUS/MSI carry 3 year warranties.

Sapphire is severely underrated, they make all the reference PCBs for AMD and are the exclusive board partner for the AMD Firepro professional graphics line now.

Did it again at 1150/1400 and took an SS

Just got my 270x Hawk :/ but was still cheaper than the gaming

Guess I kinda forgot that heaven valley uses CPU and GPU. >.>
I'm trying to find Heaven Benchmark, uses much less of your CPU power for the comparison.

So if im not over clocking it, just gonna leave it stock for crossfire with 7870 to match clocks, then the powercolor and sapphire are the best?

A Sapphire 270x would be a good match for your card, yes.
