GTX 760/ r9 270x/ r9 270?

I want to get the gtx760 for my build but I am considering buying an r9 270 instead and overclocking it to save money since it has essentially the same specs as the 270x except with lower clock speeds. Opinions?

The 270 would save you money, but the 760 is the higher performing card. Depends what kind of gaming experience you want, and we cannot decide that for you.
