I'm building a new PC soon and I've been looking into many GPUs, I finally settled on the GTX 760 but I watch MMOxReview on YouTube and he has a GTX 670 and an Intel Core i5-3570K (same one I want) and he runs Skyrim very good, I decided to look up some benchmarks and saw in the three or so I looked at that the GTX 670 outperformed all 3 of the GTX 760s in the benchmark, why is that? Or did all three make a error?

More about : gtx 760 gtx 670

Just looked up the GTX 670, found out it was $200 more >_> I should really do more research before I ask these questions.

If you want to run Skyrim, you need a good amount of VRAM. I'd go with 770 more than likely. I have the EVGA GTX760 4GB version.

The 760 is slightly slower than the 670, but it has much better bang for buck, which is what really matters. The 5 extra FPS you would get in most games using the 670 isn't worth the extra $100-$150.

That isn't true. You really wouldn't ever need more than 2GB unless you were playing at a resolution higher than 1080p or *going insane* with mods. The 760 would be more than powerful enough to max it out, even with a lot of mods.

I can't really comment on the GTx 760 but I can tell you that the GTX 670 is a great GPU. I have a SLI setup with the GTX 670's. I have not sidegraded to the GTX 7xx cards simple because the only real difference is Boost 2.0 and a higher VRam speed. There is just not enough difference in the cards to even really be a sidegrade. The GTX 7xx cards are built off of the same silicon as the GTX 6xx giving no reason what so ever to get them.

Aside from the fact that they are a heck of a lot cheaper while offering similar or better performance.

Yeah I was the thinking about dropped the extra $60 and buying the GTX 760 FTW except it ships in 1-3 months on Amazon.com and the GTX 770 is like $170 more, should I just get everything else from Amazon and buy the GTX 760 Windforce 4GB GDDR5 from Newegg.com?

Best solution

You don't need 4GB for 1080p. It is a waste of money. I recommend a 2GB windforce, unless you plan on higher resolutions in the future.

After I build my PC I was going to save up for a 2560x1440/2560x1600 monitor also, I will probably go mod crazy in Skyrim :p

Gtx 760 is slightly behind GTX 670 stock vs stock. However, if you purchased a factory OCed 760 with a good OC on it, it will be almost exact performance out of the box as a reference clocked 670, it just ever won't reach the same level of performance a good 670 can reach with a max OC on it. (although there still will be additional OC headroom)

I actually decided last night to RMA my EVGA 760 for the MSI 760 TF OC. Specs vs Specs it's worth the 10 bucks more even though i have to pay for shipping back. Pretty annoying but will match my MSI board now as well.

Buy the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition (Twin Frozr IV) and overclock the shit out of it, it'll smoke the GTX 760.
