    The 260X and 360 are CI family, 265 is SI family, so all the chips have been out long enough to have full support (ie not waiting for DPM like 285/380 and Fiji).

    The 265 is roughly an updated 7850, and has both wider VRAM and more ROPs than 260/360/260X so should be noticeably faster on most games.

    Would an AMD R7 265 be better? Is it like the AMD R9 285 where it performs terrible because of drivers

    I am deciding whether I should buy an AMD Radeon R7 260X or an AMD Radeon R7 360. I plan on using the Open Source Mesa3D Drivers w/ Gallium-Nine.
    I am on a ~$450 budget, and here is the computer I plan on building along with a monitor because the one I have has design issues.

    Also which distrubution should I use?
    Manjaro Linux? I used it before and it was alright.
    Or should I use Linux Opensuse? I never used opensuse but it looks decent to me.
    I am currently on Ubuntu, it is alright I'd like to try something different however.

    Same xml editing for Catalyst too, only after edit one need to convert it to hashed file and replace system one

    If you want a simple example look in /etc/drirc - that's the default set of profiles for the mesa driver. Basically a list of programs with a set of options to use for each program, eg "allow this program to use that extension without enabling it first like it was supposed to".

    You can have a .drirc in your home directory as well, which IIRC over-rides the default file, and the driconfig utility allows you to create/modify the local copy.

    Profile is driver customization (can be simple, but also complex) for particular app, it is just sort of overriding what driver do by default.

    Don't think I understand the question - are you asking "what are people talking about when they say that there's a profile for game XYZ" or are you asking how the card compares to other cards in the range ?

    thank you bridgman. also quick question; what are performance profiles?

    I would go with the 260X if you can live with ~15W extra power draw. Looks like your PSU should handle it but I'm a bit out of touch re: which PSUs meet their specs these days. The EVGA seems to be pretty well regarded though.

    The 260X is a fully populated Bonaire while IIRC the 260 and 360 are slightly reduced, 12 CUs instead of 14 and slightly slower clocks.
