So I'm putting together my second build and I'm not sure what graphics card to go with. I really want the MSI Gaming N760 but it's out of stock on newegg so I was looking for more and I found the Asus 760 or the Radeon HD 7950 Boost for the same price and now im not so sure which one to buy.... which one will give me my moneys worth?

SPEC:
Motherboard: Maximus V Formula
CPU: Intel i7-3770k
RAM: G.Skill Triton 8gig 2400mhz
HDD: Samsung 840 120 gig
PSU: X3 1000w

Either were good. But I'd give the slight edge to 7950 because of higher mem bus width and vram. But if you plan to go dual-setup (Crossfire/SLI) in the future, go with GTX 760 as NVIDIA tends to have better drivers when using Dual-setup.
So to sum it up.

Single Card - 7950

Dual (Right now or in the future) - GTX 760 :)

Well I was also looking at what kind of software they come with and the MSI comes with the boost 2.0 among other things would the 7950 will be better?
PS Ive never had cards other then Nvidia

The GPU Boost 2.0 is only exclusive to NVIDIA as it's their new technology so you can't use it in AMD.


I know the GPU Boost 2.0 is only for Nvidia what I was asking is if that makes a big difference when putting the 760 and 7950 head to head

You know what, I think you should just go to GTX 760, i just remember that vram isn't that much of a thing to worry about anyway as most games have their own memory management and adjust the vram usage according to what the GPU have. Plus, if you plan to Dual-setup in the future, NVIDIA is more stable and also, you've been using nvidia for a long time. And in some games, 760 do edge the 7950. :)

Yeah I think I'm just going to get the GTX 760 from MSI I just hate the fact that its out of stock everywhere and if I buy it from TigerDirect its +$40 :/  I just hope Newegg get some more in stock soon

I'd go with ASUS, awesome customer support, and that Direct CU II cooler they have is totally a massive beast from what I've heard from my friends.

I just picked up the MSI 760 TF when it came in stock yesterday, but they did run out pretty quickly. I would recommend the auto-notify option on newegg and pick it up right when you get the email. They've been coming in and out of stock, but I'm assuming they get at least one shipment per week based on the popularity.
