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
You are incorrect/Misinformed and you are spreading false information. Quit it.

79xx cards have 384 bit bus width (And more RAM 3GB instead of a lousy 2GB), their bandwidths will walk over a 670-680-770. It wont choke at high resolutions and/or high res textures (FPS Doesnt drop to 3-5 FPS due to data swapping) like the GK104s would. They have higher IPC than any of Nvidias GK104 cards thus more gain from overclocking. My 7950 VaporX for example ran circles around a 680 easily in 3dmark.

PhysX? Lol, only a few games use it. Your CPU can do it anyways. On a budget? AMD is better, eyefinity? AGAIN; AMD IS BETTER.

You gotta start looking at specs and benchmarks that are not done on cherrypicked games. Also most benchmarks ive seen will run satock 79xx cards while any GK104 overclocks it self to 1200+ on core easily due to boost. And STILL BARELY beat 79xx cards.

Nvidia has better drivers imo i was on nothing but ATi/AMD cards since i started pc building over a decade ago. I switched to SLi because it works better then xfire and overall i find it to be a smoother experience.

each to their own of course.

Oooh the good old "Nvidia has better drivers" arguement. Well none of my 79xx cards have fried because of faulty drivers, my BF3 hasnt looked like Minecraft either.

AMD Scales better with Multi GPU setups too, smoother? AMD Fixed framepacing issues in the last drivers.

Use a valid argument at least.

7950 is the best card to get. Here's is why...

1. overclock it, it will beat gtx 670 for sure.
2. 3 gb vram past 1080p it will shine over gtx 670.
3. cheaper than gtx 670 by a mile.
4. free 3 popular games.
5. driver for crossfire is fix in case you want to crossfire later. (future proof).

It is truly the best card to get. Just bought my third card to tri-fire :p

Think you guys might have missed a important part of the OP

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

I'm planning on overclocking my CPU or just buying a new one from Intel, if the results come short from this GPU.
Feel free to suggest any CPU that potentionally has the best performance per dollar. Thank you for your time and effort.

Lol what a crappy purchase. Im out.

I wouldn't agree with you. According to TPU's reviews, which I trust a lot more than just about any other source of information on GPU performance, at 1080p, the GTX760 outperforms the 7950. Is the extra cost of the GTX760 worth the extra performance? Only the person spending the money can answer that.

also shows a 670 and 7970 doing better....

an overclocked 7950 is on par/better than a stock 7970

Yea you're right 760 is basically a 7970 in terms of performance :roll:

You also deliberately ignore the fact that it has boost 2.0 giving it an advantage of 150-250 MHz on core.

Not BIASED OPINIONS ( or "IMHOs" )
So my opinions are biased despite me only having 3 Nvidia cards in my life time? (1x8800GTS(G92) & 2xGTX 680s) :laugh::laugh::laugh:

Ive had nothing but AMD cards since they were making ATi Rage cards and all of a sudden my opinions are biased because I decided to switch up after issues with crossfire and ive had 3 sets of crossfired cards

But I guess Its ok to dismiss another person's personal experience - its the internet after all.

and you don't think the GTX760 can be OC'ed as well? I mean that graph is for a "regular" GTX760, the OP picked a factory OC'ed GTX760.

mostly all NVidia cards oc themselves these days, so basically picking reviews that stock vs stock isn't quiet accurate when one boosts to higher clocks..

and AMD scale in performance quite well with overclocking tbh.

They scale BETTER with OC due to higher IPC.

You should be open to the best option.

Amd driver is no more valid arguments because amd address their driver issue with single card and crossfire. If you still bring your bad experience with amd driver in the past it is of course irrelevant as of now.

For now, the best buy/perf is the hd 7950. Nothing will beat it in the medium range gpu department. It will kick butt once overclock as well.

Oh, I realize the OC'ing ability of the HD7000 is great, I have three HD7000 cards myself. But it is kinda hit or miss. Best I've gotten out of my 7970 is 1175core/1450mem, while Erocker can get 1300core/1600mem.

Lets stop fighting shall we?

I honestly cannot tell the difference between my friend's 7950 or my 660Ti, and currently the 660Ti is selling for under £140 while the 7950 is selling for about the £170. Hands down the 660Ti wins the price/perf race in this side of the pond.

id go as far to say its been the best price/performance card this era - 7950

and has outlasted nvidias 500-700 series in the midrange competition.

but as with any card, its luck.

mine can do 1250/1750 on air, but 1100/1400-1500 is a massive boost in performance for gaming!

Oh, I can't/won't deny the 7950 is the best price/performance option out in the discussed price range. That is 100% true IMO. And with a little luck and some OC'ing, it can match or beat almost any single GPU card out today, save the GTX780 and Titan. But also I can't deny that fact that at it's factory stock settings, the GTX760 is very close to 7970 GHZ edition performance. Remember, the OP hasn't said anything about wanting to OC and nothing in their system specs is OC'ed.

Lets stop fighting shall we?

I honestly cannot tell the difference between my friend's 7950 or my 660Ti, and currently the 660Ti is selling for under £140 while the 7950 is selling for about the £170. Hands down the 660Ti wins the price/perf race in this side of the pond.
Don't forget the 3 gb vram that 7950 has. $189.00 after MIR + 3 games that you can sell for even for lower price is unbeatable. Lastly, eventually most will upgrade to the next res which is the 1440p, guess what 7950 with 3 gb vram is ready for it.
