Hello all,

I've been running a single Gtx 460 1gb for the past three years and have been dying to upgrade. I found a great deal on a sapphire dual x HD 7950 boost OC for $260, but i'm also hearing rumors of the GTX 760ti being released soon and at a 670's performance level for $300ish.

I play games at 1080p with a single monitor (Skyrim, witcher 2, Bioshock Infinite, etc).

With a budget at just around $300 is this a deal thats too good to pass up or would I be shooting myself in the foot not waiting for the 760ti?

We will not know untill the card is out. If you overclock, just get the AMD, if not, wait.

According to GPU boss, the 7950 will be slightly better. It was pretty dead on with the stuff before the 770 was out so...

STOP USING GPUBoss! For heavens sake IT DOES NOT HAVE BENCHMARKS, it give you NO idea of what real world performance the card delievers, hell according to GPUBoss AMD wins EVERY time.

Please refrain from using that(and HWCompare for that matter) on Toms.

It took us FOREVER to get HWCompare out of this forum and now GPUBoss is doing the same thing.

Has there been any strong rumors on when the 760ti might be released? I've heard August and I've heard Computex.. If it isn't until August i'm just going to grab the 7950.

Latest I heard was August. Which fits previous release Cycles. Not that this cycle is normal, but yeah.

Keep in mind most HD7950 can OC to the point of a GTX670 anyway. So yeah, its really easy decision IF you are an OCer.

Ugh..no. I checked out the GTX 770 vs Radeon 7970 BEFORE there were benchmarks. It had the 770 ahead slightly. And what do you know. IT IS!!

Thats not the point. GPUBoss means nothing. Try AnandTech bench. Its not perfect, but MUCH better.

7950 all the WAY :)  can be clocked easily to 1100/1500 and gives 20% performance boost in FPS in all games compared to stock performance or a GT 660 TI

GTX 760 gets released next week. It will beat the HD 7950 @ 1080p. You don't want to go Radeon after owning a great GeForce like that, IMO.

I've got a couple 7950's and they overclock nicely. I'd grab one of these http://amzn.to/12K7UAZ


Though that's tempting with the amazing cooler and if it comes with the 4 free games...
