Gigabyte is launching the new GTX 760 with their WindForce 3X triple-fan cooler. The card is also overclocked out of the box, which provides a nice performance boost over the reference design.

Thank you for the review, W1zzard~!

So, Gigabytes has a good OC Model, while not running to hot compare to the rest.

It's worth going for OC, if anyone plan to go for a 1080 display.

I wonder how much GTX 760 Ti will go for, if it turn out to be $299 than you might want spend that extra $50 and buy that. Though, it will be a long wait...

I wonder if modifying the BIOS and increase the power target and voltage, would allow for a much higher OC, since it uses what appears to be a reference GTX 680 board. My GTX 670 has the exact same board as the GTX 680, but is configured to use 25W less for power target.

Great review. Looks like the gtx760 may hit the sweet spot for many people at approx. $250.

Lack of a 3GB frame buffer and the fact that flashing the 7950 bios to 1050MHz core/1400MHz memory took about 5 minutes and produces a noticeably faster card, plus free games with the 7950 makes this card look much less appealing.

No gtx 760 ti, gtx 760 replaces the gtx 660 ti do you want something cheaper it's gtx 650 ti or gtx 660
