7970, GTX 760, 770 which should I choose?

Should I get the Sapphire 7970 for $320 USD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202008

Or the MSI Gaming GTX 760 4GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127748

Or would the GTX 770 4gb really be worth the extra $170 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127747


Mostly gaming at 1080p , games like BF4, Watchdogs, next TES, AC4. I realize these games aren't out and no one can say for sure how well these cards will play them.

as these games won't come out for a couple months, should I just wait and pass up the deal on the 7970 to see if something better comes up on the 770?

More about 7970 gtx 760 770 choose
  1. If you are just playing at 1080p get a 2gb 770 and you will be sitting good.
  2. I would personally go with the 770 you have given as the MSI cooler cards are amazing and will outperform that 7970 on I think everything. But if your not in a rush and can deal with your current specs, whatever they are, then maybe wait for some deals, new cards etc.

    *edit what ajl2011shooter said above is also very true and will save you money, unless you have 2-3 monitors or are at 2560x1600 or something then 2gb is more than enough
  3. I am currently running a single Sapphire 7870GHz.
    I was looking at more VRAM since I play modded Skyrim and hopefully the next TES. would the 3GB 7970GHz be good for that with the 384bit memory bus @ 5.7Ghz memory? or do you think the GTX 760 4GB with 256 bit bus @ 6GHz would be a better decision if the 770 never comes to a price I feel like paying.

    I was looking at the MSI Gaming cards since they hookup and OC higher with the my MOBO since its MSI Gaming as well.

    I would wait for the 9970, it's supposed to be a rampaging beast. But you never know XD
  5. If you are worried about the vram then go with a 4gb 770 if you can. If not the 4gb 760 would be the next best. IMO.
  6. i say saty with what you have or just get the gtx 760 ti as i can tell you like to buy many gpus alot
  7. I say a 4GB GTX 760 ^.^ Amazing for the price and also if you SLI them you can get GTX Titan performance for only $500 :D
  8. the 4gb gtx 760 is a gimmick, the graphics card can't use all that VRAM, so it's a waste of money, 2gb is more than enough, but if you do want lots of vram, get the 7950, comes with 384bit and 3gb VRAM, which it can actually use.
