http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/vk4N99 - This is my build. I have ordered everything apart from the GPU and PSU. I will be running the system on a 1080p monitor and will be playing games such as BF4 and Shadow of Mordor. I was wondering which one of these GPU's will be better - 1)http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-270X-1020MHz-Express-Graphics/dp/B00FOR0086 or 2)http://www.ebuyer.com/661869-gigabyte-r9-280-windforce-3x-3gb-3gb-gddr5-dvi-hdmi-dual-mini-gv-r928wf3oc-3gd Which one will be cooler, quieter and perform better with the CPU overclocked?

280 is more powerful than 270.

270<270x<280<280x<290<290x

yes but the 270x has more vram and is clocked higher.

More ram does not matter unless u r planning to use multiple monitor setup.

290 is much more powerful even at 4k.
