SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 OC WITH BOOST Vs Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Tri-X Toxic Video Card

Hi all!

I'm stuck choosing between the Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Tri-X Toxic Video Card and the SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 OC WITH BOOST

They are both currently available for near as makes no difference the same money so which one do i go for? the Toxic seems to have a slightly higher OC but does that make it the one to go for? I'm looking to buy a discrete GPU to completely take over graphics duties from my current AMD A10-6800K APU (OC to 4.6GHz) to allow me to play games at high frame rates on high settings. I'm thinking of battlefield, far cry 4 and other similar types of games. thoughts?

other system details:
AMD A10 6800K APU O.C. @ 4.6GHz
8GB Kingston Hyper x 2400MHz RAM
Asus A88xm plus Mobo

  1. Best answer
    get the toxic version, it is better, cooler, overclocks better, and looks better IMO
  2. The tri x cooler is well known and is quite good. I would go for the tri x as the cooler it is the higher the overclock. The overclock on the other card is probably a meagre amount that they do just so they can call it "over clocked"
  3. Also - one other related question - any recommendations on a PSU? my measly Corsair VS 350W is not going to be enough power for the new card - How much will i need? 500w?
  4. grab a seasonic 550W 80+ gold one
