Unhappy What should I buy AMD or Nvidia

So due to the new releases of graphic cards, I believe its time to upgrade. I was going to buy Nvidia's GTX 970 however I waited to see how the AMD cards fare against Nvidia's line up. And i gotta say i'm impressed. I currently own a R9 270x and play on a 1080p screen. Any suggestions on which card and why thanks.

I suppose that would depend on your budget what are your pc's specs atm?

Hard to answer that without a budget!

How much are you looking to spend?

Hmmm you could actually buy another 270x or a 370 (they are the same card) and Crossfire them. You'll totally see a boost in most games!

Well with your budget you could always grab a 290x for cheap or settle for a GTX 970.
