Gaming noise is much improved too, which should result in a really quiet gaming experience.

It does though not by much. When the 650 ti boost was first out it was 150 which is cheaper than the r9. for whatever reason now I can't find it very cheap at all so the R9 makes more sense.
radeon will win
