Nvidia Geforce GTX 660, 760 or 770 for gaming?

Hello, I'm planning on building a gaming PC, and for my graphics card, I narrowed down my options to either the Nvidia GTX 760 or the 770. I've heard that the 760 will run next-generation games such as Battlefield 4 quite smoothly, but also at a pretty good price of $250.

I dont know about the 660, and I want to know if the 760 is better.

Now, I know that the 770 is best out of these three, but also at as higher price of $440 (at my location). So I'm wondering if there's that much of a difference between the 760 and 770 in terms of the frame rate, graphics quality, etc. Thanks.

Thanks in advance!

1920x1080. Is there a higher one these days?

There is always 1440p, but they're a lot more expensive. 1080p is run by most people and is the usual resolution used for gaming. The fact that the 760 can run BF4 smoothly is not an accurate statement as the game has not yet been released and therefore the requirements for the game are unknown. I would rule out the 660 straight away as it will struggle with the next gen games. You should be fine with the 760 for the next couple of year, running on medium/high towards the end of that time period. If you have the extra cash, then go for the 770.

Thanks for the reply. Would the 770 have a much greater performance, due to the fact that it nearly doubles the price of the 760?

try the 4670k if you can afford the $250, but I think newegg is bundling them up with motherboards for up to $100 off. I think if you get the 4670k and the asus z87 pro motherboard, you get them for $360, which is almost $90 in saving.

If I'm honest, benchmarks were done on the whole new 700 series from Nvidia, and found that the 760 is a little less fast than the 770. The 770 performs 10-15FPS more in games, of course that counts while gaming; but spending the extra money is no point.

I don't think I would mind 10-15 fps lower :)  Are there any other differences for the 760 when compared to the 770? Thanks.

Oh great! I had the 4670k and the 3570k in mind. However, I was originally planning on getting the parts at my local computer store (CanadaComputers.ca).
