Gigabyte Radeon 7950 VS GTX 760 HELP!

Hello! So in about a week or so im buying a graphics card to finish out my new build. I am torn between the GTX 760 and the HD 7950. I really like the 760 a lot and really enjoy the new software and such brought by NVidia. And for the longest time ever since its release i had that the 760 was the perfect card for me BUT there is one thing. The 7950 has 3 gb vram vs 2gb in the 760. i WILL be running dual monitors, one being 1080p. Also a 384bit memory bus vs 256 with the 760. It however also is $20 more. So i am wondering WILL THE 760 HAVE A PROBLEM RUNNING MY MAIN MONITOR AT MAX SETTINGS AS WELL AS THE 7950? as you can see i am flustered. Thank you for your input everyone.

    Are you stupid? That's like saying an i5 750 is the same as a 2500k. The 760 is a very different card based off a completely different architecture that performs on par with the 7950, not the 7970, as you thought it was.

    To the OP: It depends. Do you want to OC the GPU? How much are both options where you live?
  2. If you are going to overclock: 7950
    If you are not going to overclock: Whichever cost less/has a better game package

    I have a 7950 and it runs every game I have at max settings on one 1080p screen, plus that 3GB of VRAM and memory bandwidth might come in handy with all those newer games. The only argument for the 760 is that it is the latest card (rebranded 600 series with additional memory bandwidth), uses less power, costs less (but you do get 3 free games with the 7950) and performance in some benchmarks is on par with the 7950. The extra overclocking ability on the 7950 does make it a bit more future proof.
  4. what i meant was 660 ti GeForce GTX 760 vs 660 Ti as everybody can see here http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-760-vs-GeForce-GTX-660-Ti the 760 is not using the GK110 GPU that the 780 and the titan use it uses the GK104-425 GPU which is the same as the 660 ti the link from gpu boss proves that the 760 is a remake of the 660 ti with small changes

    In no way was this related to my question. And yes the 660ti and 760 are very similar because the 760 actualy was meant to replace the 660ti. Along with the new software like GPU Boost 2.0, the 760 performs slightly better than the 660ti and for less money. Its not meant to be an upgrade for the 660ti, because the price is first of all lower, but its means to be a noticeable upgrade from anything else like the 660 and lower.
