Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/qGdbD3 (yes i am aware this was a cheap build, I didnt have a very high budget :C)

I was looking into upgrading my pc's gpu, I have had this build for about a year and a half now and i feel as if it is time to upgrade it a bit! The games I play are minecraft and a game called OSU, I am looking to run shaders in minecraft with over 60 fps on at least 12 render distance and OSU doesn't really take anything to powerful to run (my current build runs the game at over 240 fps normally). I have heard a few times that minecraft runs smooth depending on memory or cpu but I don't know a whole lot about that. MY budget for a new gpu is $200 ($230 at the very most). I have heard that the rx 470 and the rx480 are pretty good but idk if there is something better for my price range or not. It would be great if you could let me know, Thanks!

I would get a RX 480. Forgot Minecraft favors Nvidia cards so I would go with a 3GB GTX 1060

Do you think It will meet my requirements? if so or if not, what would be the frame rate? and would I have to upgrade other parts of the pc as well?

It will easily meet your needs. Not sure what Shader you will be using but it is insanely more powerful than a R9 270, easily twice as powerful. No your PSU will support it and your case will fit it.

This also an option for you i am not saying a new GPU is not the way forward i am just giving you another view . I have also heard its CPU dependant.
