Hello :) ,i was looking at evga's 760 which i found for 209 euros which is an excellent price. I wanted to get an 7950 but couldn't find anything cheap from my country. Cheapest ones i could find was at 300 euros. Is there any shop that ships to Greece and has cheap prices such as 250-270 euros for 7950 sapphire dual-x or any other brand? If there is nothing i will be going for 760. I will be also overclocking.

More about : 760 7950

At that price get the GTX 760. It really can't be beat.

A 7950 would have to cheaper than 200 euros to make it worthwhile.

Is there a chart like this that shows a 7950 moderatly overclocked?

I know heat/power consumption aren't the foremost thoughts on most minds, but keep in mind that while an OC'ed 7950 will approach the power of a 760 (maybe even surpass on some dual monitor or higher resolution setups... it will never hold a candle on efficiency. 760 all the way

How big of a difference is the non TF version of MSI 760 vs TF 760? Because I need a new card like right now and the only one in stock is the non-tf 760.

The TF is short for Twin Frozr II, which refers to the aftermarket MSI cooler they've added on the card. The reference cooler will be slightly louder and run hotter, but not by much. The Twin Frozr model also comes factory overclocked which makes it a slightly better performing option. That said, you can just overclock a reference card yourself to meet the that performance or push it even further if you're so inclined.

The MSI N760-2GD5 is equivalent to the NVIDIA reference design model shown as the blue bar.

The MSI N760-2GD5/OC uses the NVIDIA reference design cooler and has the same GPU core clocks and memory clock as the ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU II OC 2GB shown by the green bar. When compared to the MSI GTX 760 TwinFrozr Gaming 2 GB running at factory clocks there isn't any performance difference.
