I'm in the market for a new GPU, currently I have a Radeon HD 6850. I'm in the price range of a GTX 760 2GB, but I also see that a R9 270X 4GB is in the same price range. I know that head-to-head the 2GB counterparts of both GPUs the GTX 760 2GB will win, but I'm not sure how much of a part VRAM plays into performance? Would it be wise to get the 4GB R9 270X? I mainly started considering the 4GB model because Titanfall suggests to have a 4GB VRAM card to max it's graphics.

Also what special features should I also take into account when I'm considering these two different models of GPUs? I know AMD has Mantle which has pretty nice effects on BF4 gameplay, anything from Nvidia, don't they have that Shadowplay recording feature? Anything else I should know of when making my decision?

P.S. I'm going by Amazon pricing because I will be ordering from there as I have a gift card. :3

I'm only going to be playing my games on 1080p for the time being anyways, so is the extra VRAM pointless in that regard?

In a word: yes.

The GTX 760 is the superior card in this case... and virtually every case compared to an R9 270X.

270x = 7870 which is slower than a 760 which is on par with a 7950/280

Great choice! Nvidia GTX 760 has really good results for Crysis: Warhead and Battlefield 3 compared to other GPUs in the same price range. I am also considering it in order to replace my Nvidia GeForce GTX 555.

I would pick a R280 or 7950 over a 760 but the 760 over the R270x

The GTX760 is the better choice.

But... I would have gotten a R9 280 (7950). It has really low stock clocks so performance is around the same as the gtx760 stock, but just kills the gtx760 in the OC game. 1100mhz is easy for a 280

I would only have gotten the GTX760 if you couldn't bump your budget upto the r9 280.
