not worth? It says here it's 44 percent better. For example i can't meet minimum req for newer games like batlefront because hd 7850 is minimum and my 7790 is a bit worse than that,on the other hand with 270x it would make differenc i think

I don't fully understand your question. If you're asking if it supports HDMI, then yes it does :). Also if your VGA monitor is flickering, it's most likely the VGA cable that causes the problem. Try swapping another cable.


Good luck! :D

Will my cpu bottleneck this? I dont think so, because i think my cpu is rather good. before you answer, please look into my cpu to see the stats.

Your CPU will not cause significant bottleneck, so you are ready to fire up the r9 270x, but for now your 260x is good for running games and the difference between these two is not radical so my suggestion is to wait a bit more for the new and more efficient 300 series GPUs.
