I've overclocked my GPU 150MHz over stock. You should be able to get at least 75MHz out of it on a safe overclock.

I'm assuming, you should be able to run BF4 on high without any problems but MP settings are different. You'll just have to find out for yourself.

Ok thanks for info :)

The R9 270 is the same exact card as both the 7870ghz and the 270X (the 270x is an overclocked 270 non x).

Since the 270x (which is the same as your card) runs at 1050mhz stock, you should be able to get at least 1050mhz on stock volts alone.

Just so your not confused, AMD release the 7870ghz almost two years ago and it was clocked round 1000-1050mhz on most models. The released the 7870ghz and gave it the new name of R9 270x. They simply took the 7870ghz/270x and down clocked it to around 900-950mhz and called is the r9 270 (its the same exact card as the 7870ghz/270x, its just clocked lower).

Not to sound noisy but with a i5 at 4.2ghz (2x the CPU power as the next gen consoles) and 8 gigs of ram, I would assume that you would aim a little higher in terms of graphics cards (at least a GTX 760).

Your CPU/ram will easily last you the entire generation so im surprised you didn't spend a little more for a better GPU (I'm guessing your waiting for the 20nm GPU's that are due Q3 2014 ?).

Yeah I was just looking for a decent midrange card, I'll be saving up for something better next year or possibly crossfire two r9 270s? lol

You should have added $20 and got this 270X. These specs are quiet nicer for only $20 more.

Yeah only prob is it doesn't come with BF4, and I like XFXs warranty

That's true. As long as you got what you wanted and you're happy with it is all that matters, right?
