Reviews Word on the street

Radeon R9 270X  vs GeForce GTX 780 

The EVGA ACX cooler does look nice, but I still don't think it can compete with the NVIDIA reference design cooler and its large shiny metal surfaces.

i know for a fact that far cry 3 frame rate is bs. my computer has an fx-8320, a sapphire r9 270x 2gb,8gb ram. i ran farcry 3 on max settings with an average of 45-50fps.
