I understand there are multiple types with different clocks, I'm wondering which is the best for the most stable performance and best FPS?

Here's a few examples:

Here's some 4GB ones, Does the 4GB make a difference compared to the 2GB?

Which one do you think is best for me to buy and why? (and I want to know difference between the 2GB and 4GB one!)

Thank you!


EDIT: Also is it worth saving up for a gtx 770 instead? I'm just wondering (still answer my other question though!)

not worth getting 770 the different is small. you have to search google for 760's benchmark for the best one.

If you are gaming at 1080p, you only need to buy the 2gb version. If you are gaming across 3 monitors then I'd get the 4gb(and 2 of them at that), but that's about it. The Asus and Msi boards you listed are solid buys, but that version of the eVga isn't. eVga has a good board, but you'll need to look for the Acx version. Gigabyte also has a good board too, it's Windforce board.

You'll have to decide if saving up for the 770 is worth it for yourself. Look at some of the benchmarks and decide if the extra FPS are worth 140 dollars more.

Also consider the 670, I believe it is $300 and a touch faster.

You can also keep an eye out for the Radeon 7950 that I've seen on sale for under 200 dollars recently. It's just a bit slower than the 760 but costs 65 dollars less, and you also get 3 free games. The performance difference isn't worth the extra 65 dollars honestly.

+1 for the HD 7950 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0093I3V88/ref=as_li_q... if you want to save some money and lose only a very small amount of performance. Otherwise, I'd go with the Gigabyte GTX 760 WF Rev 2 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DGM8B6O/ref=as_li_q... It's the highest clocked and coolest running 760. I also have the card and love it, overclocks very nicely also.


How's this one look? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Its $200 after $30 rebate! Plus its clocked to 925MHz

I've heard only bad things about the XFX cards so I would avoid them. I've owned 3 Sapphires and they have all been great cards and overclock very very well.


Alright, so out of these 3 types, Which would you suggest and why? Which has best performance (based on their clock) and best cooling?

Sapphire:

Gigabyte:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HIS IceQ:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Also why does the HIS IceQ have a 'Effective Memory Clock' of "1250MHz (5.0Gbps)" while the other two have one of "5000MHz "


ALSO: Is it worth selling my current Radeon HD 6750 or can I crossfire it with this if i get it? (I've never used crossfire and I'm not 100% sure how it works exactly, I'm pretty sure mine is crossfire capable but I don't know if it can work with THIS graphics card or if it wont increase anything)

(Or crossfire with my other HD 5770 which I wont sell but can use)

I wouldn't buy a 7950 if it's the same price as a 760 though. The best reason to buy a 7950 is to save 50 dollars or so. I've heard nothing but good things about Xfx cards, so I'd go ahead and buy the one you linked earlier. 200 after MiR is really good.
