I won't claim to be an expert, but I believe that those cards require a 500w minimum power supply. So in theory you could use them but it'd probably be putting a lot of stress on the power supply. And the 270x is the better one, it has a higher GPU clock speed and more memory.

If its a quality power supply, it should run without issues.
