There pretty much neck and neck the gtx 760 is a better choice imo. Quote: Today, NVIDIA releases their GeForce GTX 760. It uses the same GK104 graphics processor as the GTX 660 Ti, GTX 670, GTX 680, and GTX 770. MSI has overclocked their GTX 760 out of the box, but with only a relatively small overclock that provides a 3% performance improvement over the reference design. The new card delivers an impressive 22% performance improvement over the GTX 660 but is also priced $60 higher. In the product stack, the GTX 760 will replace the GTX 660 Ti, with the GTX 760 GAMING providing a performance that is 8% higher at $20 less. Compared to AMD's lineup, we see the card 11% faster than the Radeon HD 7950; the HD 7950 Boost variants should roughly match its performance but is more expensive.
While all other companies cheapen out by using more affordable coolers, MSI goes all-in, using the same TwinFrozr cooler as on the GTX 770 GAMING. This more powerful cooler provides fantastic cooling performance, resulting in low temperatures and low noise levels. Other cards are quiet in idle too, but MSI's card is by far the quietest during gaming. With just 27 dBA, it is quieter than most other cards on the market in idle while still packing a serious gaming punch. Any gamer who's looking for the lowest possible noise at 1080p full HD will certainly enjoy the GTX 760 GAMING.
While AMD's HD 7950 comes with 3 GB of VRAM, the GTX 760 "only" uses 2 GB, which is plenty considering both cards are just too slow to play any game at resolutions that require more than 2 GB of VRAM. Overclocking works well and provides an easily accessible performance boost of around 18%, making the card faster than the GTX 680 and HD 7970 GHz Edition. Pretty nice for a $260 card.
MSI's card also reduces power consumption slightly over the NVIDIA reference design, which helps with its Performance per watt score. Other GTX 760 cards we tested are at the end of the GK104 spectrum. MSI's card sits right in the middle, which certainly benefits temperatures and noise levels as there is less heat that needs to be cooled.
According to MSI, they expect their card to retail at $260, which is a very reasonable price premium of $10 over the reference design. When looking at cards for serious gaming, this is the card offering the most bang for the buck. The cheapest AMD HD 7950 retails at $10 more, is 11% slower, but comes with three games. So if you absolutely must keep cost down, the HD 7950 would be a cheaper option after selling off the game coupons. Source: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GeForce_GTX_760_...

Hands 760! It's cheaper and it performs better or on par with the 7950 bro. Go with the 760.

GTX 760 has hands-down the best value for money in that category. Plus if you ever want to upgrade to SLI, it gives you better-than-Titan class performance at a very reasonable cost, and without all the Crossfire issues that AMD has. (Yes, AMD has promised to fix them, but I believe it when I see it. Meanwhile nVidia has no such issues.)

Asus and MSI have the best coolers for the 760, making the card nearly inaudible even at load, or so I hear.

Why would you want to upgrade to a HD 9950? Just get a second GTX 760 and rock any game now or in the future with the awesome SLI performance it gives you. There's no way the 9950 will come anywhere near that.

Seriously, the SLI 760 is better than a $1000 GTX Titan and much better than a GTX 780. The HD 9950 doesn't in all likelihood even enter the comparison. There's absolutely no reason to swap the GTX 760 for any card in the HD 9000 family, none. If you get one 760 now, then going SLI with that beats them all not just in performance but in value-for-money as well.

If you get two 760s, you wont have to even think about upgrading for at least three years. Certainly not within the year, let alone in three months. Mind you, a single 760 is no slouch either, so you could easily wait for Maxwell launch next spring to get the second 760 cheaper.
