Recent price cuts have made the 7950 the best card under 300 if you can buy from newegg:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202026
It is slightly faster than the 760, and can be overclocked to 7970 levels.
Yes it's true that with recent price drops the 7950 becomes a very interesting contender too. I guess both the 760 or the 7950 are solid picks. You probably won't regret neither of them.
