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

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

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?

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

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
