Hi, i'm planning on building a pc in a month.

The CPU I have chosen is the AMD FX-8320. Which of the the two cards will perform best?

These are the cards:

HD 7950

OR

GTX 760

Thank you for your help.

Best solution

760 is ideal for 1080p 7950 boost is ideal for 1440p+ because the games are going to use more than 2gb so 7950 takes advantage over the 760 when playing on high resolution but 760 supports physx and cuda and its cheaper so definitely go for 760 unless youre going to use more than 1080p at highest settings

Go for the HD7950 with the game bundle
(unless you have all the games)

The 670 performs a little faster but runs hotter.

The 670 is better than the other two. Temperatures should be the least of your concern because these things are quite solid and mine is always at 80+ with the outside temps during day being 35C on average and I have mine running for like almost 4 years, infact when I dont clean my case the temps go of to 99C and the game begins stuttering and I just minimise it for some time and resume playing :D  Oh yeah, if you get a 670 for the price of a 760 just get it!!

here in the uk the two cards are the same price, 200 GBP, so i'll go with the asus gtx 670, thanks for the help guys.
Will the gtx 670 be able to play games on high settings for a couple of years?

Sure, No sweat :bounce:

But if you want to record gameplays, only gtx 700 cards will support Nvidia ShadowPlay which causes negligible hit in performance..So you may well even go with that 3-fan Gigabyte 760 which even I have planned to buy!

Just a heads-up that some of the gigabyte GPU's these days come voltage locked, so watch out for that if you plan to overclock at all.
