Radeon R9 270X  vs GeForce GTX 750 Ti 

GPU overclocking potential is quite good even though the ASUS card is overclocked out of the box.

I'm going with the 750 TI because it does have good reviews and it uses less power. Im building a micro itx rig for my truck. The most aggressive game I play is American Truck Simulator and Car Mechanic Simulator 2015. I heard its a loud card because the cooling fans don't go below %42. I can live with the noise and I don't think it will be anymore annoying than my refrigerated trailer.
I have the Nvidia GTX750TI card and was worried I might not be able to play games like GTA:V and Fallout4 so I borrowed my friends extra Diamond R9 270X and ran both games great for a couple months til he needed it back. The GTX 750TI is now back in and I can honestly say I see 0 difference in graphics during game play with the same settings. The AMD card is enormous and needed an extra 8pin power adapter. It was also far more intensive on my PSU than the Nvidia card. The nearly $100 difference in price even today in Jan. 2016 along with the extra power consumption for nearly no noticeable difference makes this a no brainer in my opinion. Sure the specs are better on paper but its what we the gamer's see that matters most. Just thought Id share.
down below reminds me that Fanboys will always exist no matter which platform. Only this time there GPU Fanboys. not necessarily "PC Fanboys" as PC stands for "Personal Computer" and can't be a fanboy of PC since its your own work you built. However if you go around praising Nvidia or bashing AMD or Praising Steam and bashing GOG. then yeah now you are a fanboy. While i tend to side that AMD drivers suck. Nvidia and there anti-consumeristic practices bother me,
i run it at 1920x1080, with a 750 ti on everything on high settings (lighting is on ultra), wetness, and few others check marked.
I have a GTX 750(non-Ti) 2GB and runs Fallout 4 on high 30-40 fps in 1440x900. Buy it rather than these two. :-p
you're a funny one
I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to say here . Could you plz elaborate?
People like you make me think that Nvidia Fans are just told to like it based on a piece of paper..... I want ot move over, but YOU are the reason I have second thoughts. You are not helping your cause, you do not know how to live in this world.
whooops 750Ti got #Rekt
i want one for free cuz i dont have money .. pls someone buy this for me pls pls pls
I just switched from Nvidia GTX 750ti to R9 270X in my new build, and I'm getting 60FPS on ultra in Shadows of Mordor. Something the 750ti couldn't do at 1080p. Extra for the people that like to read: The 750ti was decent enough when I upgraded it, but soon enough as I tried to play Witcher 3—I barely got 45FPS with it, even with a new CPU in this build, and 20GB ram instead of 12. I went through a couple Nvidia GPUs spanning 3 years, and through every upgrade got barely 25% more performance in every upgrade(usually 10% on average). I paid $240 for the 750ti, and only had it about 3-4 months. I paid $120 for the R9 270X for an over 50% performance increase, with 256bit memory instead of 128. The only good Nvidia does is in Physx games, but if they can't handle anything else, it doesn't matter. I moved to Nvidia after the HD Radeon 7770, and I'm back again, kicking myself in the arse for the wasted money. I could have just gotten this GPU earlier, and went crossfire in my new build, which I'll be doing in a week or so likely, and it'll stomp the 750ti into the ground for the same cost. I weighed my options back then, and I wasn't sure if I'd be okay with the change, and I was, for a time, until I went ATi again and realized that Physx is phasing out in next-gen games for the most part, especially due to the consoles having AMD hardware. I'm happier going all AMD again, and going with my better judgement. I'm giving the 750ti to my friend for $50, because that's really all it's worth in terms of performance, and he'll see more benefit from it, seeing as he's still running the old 5570 I had given him. As for the people with driver issues.. I have no idea why you're having issues. I go to AMD's website, install the proper drivers and never have a problem, and never did in the past either.
I have an R9 270X, and I was thinking about buying this card when I was deciding. The reason I bought the R9 270X is because it's better. No dur. Yes, linux AMD drivers do suck it my experiences, and there's not really any way you can do much gaming on Linux because of it. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut in Windows I can play most games on ultra @ 1080p, Witcher 3: Wild hunt can play perfectly on Medium settings, not sure about high or ultra.
nobody cares.
Woah man... relax. They kind of suck (for Linux I guess), but no need to rage

NVIDIA Fanboy Spotted.
Both good graphic card. My brother have 750 ti and I have R9 270x OC. Both run find in full ultra setting so like if there is anything wrong with it.
because fanboyism.........
Amd Is great For Money
I owned both AMD and Nvidia, currently own AMD but i got way more experience with assembling PCs for family and friends. I really never had any problems except when i went from Nvidia to AMD without reinstalling OS. I had to sweep drivers just like you mentioned with Guru3D's uninstaller. I changed from AMD to Nvidia tons of times because i was messing aroung with crypto coin mining. I can tell you that from my experience i had tons of problems as well when i switched back to Nvidia without clean OS but this time i had to delete drivers manually. Few times i had problems with OLD NVIDIA DRIVERS making problems with newer card. Nuts.
Speaking as a current Radeon owner who just resolved some serious stupidity with AMD drivers? Yeah, AMD drivers really do suck, but I don't think it's the drivers themselves but rather the shoddy uninstall process that causes bits & pieces of old drivers to screw with the new drivers. Having to use 3rd Party software (Driver Sweeper or Guru3D's DIsplay Driver Uninstaller) to properly uninstall is honestly truly idiotic and something of which both AMD & Nvidia should be ashamed. From my (recent) experience, it seems that the bits & pieces of old drivers affect AMD cards far more negatively than Nvidia.
They dont suck for 3 years already.
