  1. not worth for the 770 at that price increase
  2. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_760/27.html

    No 760 has the best price to performance. 770 is around 20% better and cost u 60% more.
  3. in price wise im not sure..but in performance wise..the 770 will smoke any game at 1080p easily. plus with sli..u can get the performance better than a gtx titan or 780
  4. guys i have the money to buy the 770 but i feel guilty wasting my money on the 770 is there any other card i can get that is like between the 770 and 760 and has a great performance?
  5. And if i will get the 770 ill get the Gigabyte brand that has 3 big fans on plus OC and guys what is SLI performance?
  6. are your options open to amd or is only limited to nvidia?

    for sli click the below link

  7. and do u only able to buy that card locally?
  8. 7970 is a viable option
  9. how great will the 7970 perform against the 770 and 760? and if the 770 cost here R6100 and the 760 R3800 how much will the 7970 be here?
  10. 7970 is tad lil faster by 5% or on par with the 770. see the link i specified above to know the performance of 7970. dunno about the cost there but the 7970 is def cheaper than the 770 and faster than the 760
  11. @VeTeRen ThoR: Check out the chart at the end, the GTX760 is missing but it falls very slightly above the GTX670/HD7950:

    The HD 79xx cards need decent coolers to keep their noise and temperatures under control BTW.
    As for prices I'm in the UK-you'll have to do your own shopping ;) .
    Read the SLI sticky here:

  12. by the way...what the hell is crossfire? i am not experts in pc's....:|
  13. cf is amd term that allows the power of multiple Graphics Processing Units to be combined in a single system.
    sli for nvidia.
    in short its like combing ex 2 770(sli ) or 2 7970(CF) in one computer for additional performance but at a price

    so it is only when you have an amd cpu working with a nvidia gpu?
  15. crossfire or sli can work on both amd & intel cpu....bt keep in mind, you need to have a motherboard that supports this option or has 2 pcie slots that allows 2 gpu to be either sli or cf
  16. Best answer
    Get a sli capable motherboard and 760. When u start feeling that 760 is not performing at a desired level then add another 760. sli 760 performs similar or better than GTX titan at half of its price
