I would get a new single card....

Depends on your budget, if you can only afford the R9 270X then go for it, if you can afford something more powerful then do that. Problem is the R9 270X only has 2GB of VRAM so I'd go for a more powerful card if your budget can handle it.

I'd also go the single route if possible. Xfire us too much hassle, and I run games in a window, which neither Sli or crossfire support.
