    I plan to purchase a graphic card to play latest games including COD AW. I've selected R9 270X cards (available in India and within my budget) and 4 GB to make it future proof at least for some time and also to keep the option of adding another card in a crossfire setup later. Help me make the right choice.

    1. MSI R9 270X GAMING 4G 4 GB at Rs.17250
    2. Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon R9 270X with Boost OC 4 GB DDR5 at Rs.16898
    3. Sapphire AMD/ATI Dual-X R9 270X 4GB at Rs.15794

    My system specs:
    CPU: i3 3225
    Motherboard: Biostar TZ77XE3
    PSU: Seasonic Bronze 850W
    Memory: GSKILL 12 GB 1600 MHZ hyperthreaded
    HDD: Two 1TB and one 500GB
    Monitor: Acer 23" LED
    Cabinet: Lancool PC-K57

    Thanks in advance.

    They're all good cards, the MSI is overclocked the most so it would be a bit faster then the Sapphire cards.

    Thanks for your response.

    My main worry is whether the i3 will be a bottleneck.

    It shouldn't be too bad for gaming, the higher clocked i3's are pretty decent.
