I don't know either, but when I check your PC specs it says your graphics card is 47% lower than mine, which is a 270x. Don't focus so much on comparing percentages, compare the data.

So far so good! This is definitely at a very good price point. I am glad I picked this card. But I did get the vapor-x version, so it runs a lot cooler, about 10 degrees celsius cooler than the stock 270x.
