You won't get a bottleneck in most games, you may get a bottleneck in CPU intensive games though.

No it won't.
But it isn't worth it to upgrade from a R9 270 to a R9 270X.
Wait for them new GPUs , or consider a higher upgrade :)

May we have a minute of silence , for that gpu we tought "beastly" , "massively overpowered" and "impossibly low priced" , MSI Gaming R9 270X 2GB.
Your 10/10 was good. Until 4K.
Rest in Peace.
