    Hello Friends, I'm currently trying to buy a new GPU, to upgrade from HIS Radeon HD 6750.

    I'm looking to spend around 150 - 250 bucks for a GPU that will last me about 2-3 years that will have no issue running the latest video games that will be considered GPU intensive.

    These are what I found to be best in the market so far. (9/4/2013)
    I can't decide which is better for Gaming and for the long run.:confused:

    Asus GTX660 TI-DC2OC-3GD5 GeForce GTX 660 Ti Graph...

    MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256...

    SAPPHIRE 100352-3L Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR...


    --Edit
    Thanks everyone for the quick and very useful information I have come to a decision after reading your opinions, various reviews on tech power up benchmarks on my 3 GPU listed above.

    My Goal: I plan on using a Single 25" Monitor at 1920x1080 at Max to Very High Settings on all types of games and have my GPU last more then 2-3 Years of everyday use.

    Conclusion:
    MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256...

    Thank you guys, I've learned a lot, I appreciate it. (A lot of useful information here)

    The 7950 is the highest-end card out of those, and it has the most VRAM. SO that would get my vote.

    No way, go the GTX670 is the fastest there by a mile. I have had EVERY single graphics card produced (build high end gaming systems) and overclocked them all, the 670 is where its at. TRUST ME,

    KsJin fill out your system specs in the User CP............. Your other system specs are important

    da20valve if you have every GPU why you run a 6950?

    You get what you pay for with components, But the "middle child" is always the best Value.

    The GTX670 is $275 after rebate (And that's for the overclocked Asus one, with a free game). Trust me this thing will KILL the 7950.
    OR get the 760 both are better value then the old 7950

    7970s are going pretty cheap now, especially with the new game bundle.

    sell the games and knock some cash off the card!

    ive just seen the cpu youre running, with a 4core youll see the fps dip a lot due to bottlenecks in cpu intensive games. not sure what res youre running tho. either of them cards would be good tbh, but 670/79** are good choices

    if you want to get a sense on how cards overclock, check out 3dmark site and browse at scores etc on X cpu.

    oh and this site has a good comparison table http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/508?vs=598


    and if 670s are killing cards why aren't they in jail?!

    The 7950 will be best value for money besides being the best of the lot you listed.

    760 if you want it to last for 2-3 years. 7950 is beginning to struggle in 1080 with everything maxed out.

    I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my OP go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
