The R9 270X is a rebranded HD 7870 with higher clocks, delivers the same experience, anyway this GPU is as powerful as the GTX 1050 2GB and it's highly recomended for budget 1080p60 gaming. This card can be Crossfired with another 270X, HD 7850 or HD 7870 and delivers a great perfomance in some games. DirectX 12 and Vulkan are supported. Most games can be run at High settings with MSAA.

Beast card. There are deffinitely better choices as of 2018, but even now, it delivers a good experience on moderate graphic settings.
