When dx 12 will be availible on slowest cpu r7 265 will have 300% highter performance. One medium-cost cpu's it will be like 500-900%, if amd do not lie.....
The R9 270 is Definitely A Better Option :)
These two cards are the best choices on the market right now! They have more than enough power to play any game with details turned up. And they are priced very very well!
