GIGABYTE GeForce® GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 WindForce 3X in SLI or Sapphire

Radeon™ HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 Boost Edition in CorssFireX? 3GB GDDR5

384-bit should be better than 2GB GDDR5 256-bit. This shoud be the full

system build:

ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz

Corsair Vengeance Black 2×4GB DDR3 1600MHz

Zalman Z12 Plus

Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

XFX Core Edition PRO 750W

Battlefield 4 is going to be an AMD optimized game, so Sapphire Radeon™

HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 Boost Edition in CrossFireX should be better?

i'd get the 760 for SLi, if price isn't going to be an issue.

I'd be taking the Nvidia set up. SLI actually works whereas there is an issue with AMD cards in CF with frame pacing, which hasn't been sorted out just yet.

What about when playing on a 2560×1440 resolution? Is it better off going with 3GB 384-bit?

Hey man, i am not an expert but i have done a lot of research and i know for sure that mid-October AMD will release Hawaii.
Hawaii will be next gen. high end graphic card for AMD 9970 comparisson 7970

My solution A: Wait for a bit.
My solution B: Dont go nor SLI nor CROSSFIREX(one Gpu is always smoother than 2 trying to work together), go get one better like gtx780 or 7970 ghz edition and BTW 790 is coming out in 2 months.

*if u can't wait,i think Sli works better than CrossfireX at scaling,but New Catalyst will eliminate that (maybe yes maybe not)
BUT here is another helpful link for 760 vs 7950

I will go for SLI, because I want to play games at really high frame rates, so I can cap the frame rate to 60 frames per second with V-Sync (I HATE SCREEN TEARING) and when I have a constant 60 frame rate with V-Sync, no game has mouse lag!
