For that price just get a rx 480 new, it will perform the same and have more vram.

Waht I would hope that the RX 480 would blow a 270X out of the water, not "perform the same"

Even if it's an 4GB version, I won't pay more than $140 for a R9 270x.

 

$210, you can get a RX480 4GB.

A 480 will demolish a 270X.

$140? A 270X barely outperforms the likes of the GTX 950 and GTX 750 Ti. If I were going to sell mine, I'd only ask $75 or so.

OP edited the title said 290x before. 

 

Definitely not worth it.
