Hey there ladies and gentlemen,

Well I have thought long and hard on what GPU to put into my next build and it all boils down to the Vapor X-7950 over the GTX 760, and I would very much appreciate your thoughts.

They are pretty similar prices; I can pick up the 7950 for £215 and the asus 760 for £214, of course you can get +/- on the prices but only by a little so cant be bothered to screw around with that nonsense.

It may help to note that I am planning on running with the AMD FX-8300, over the new intel I5-4670k simply because its a nice price (~£20 less) and its better with streaming games, editing videos etc with all those lovely 8 cores.

So, what are your thoughts? Anyone who has the 760 or the 7950 who can get me out of this rut?

Thanks in advance ! :)

I would go with the 7950, 1 more GB of Vram.

If you look at benchmarks, 760 is a better performing card, so that's what I would go for. And 2GB is all you need, unless you're running surround monitor gaming on high resolution or something...

Good luck!

+1 for 760 because it is newer series. It means 760 will get more driver updates which will increase FPS. 7950 will get old in about month.
+1 for 760 because advanced psyhx. AMD also has psyhx but it is done by cpu and it isn't advanced (looks worse).

go for 760 if u have 1080p monitor .......it you have anything high 1440p> then 7950 comes in handy over the 760 but 760 is rock solid over 7950 in 1080 performance.......

those two are nearly performing on the same level. the 7950 edges it out more often than not

see the benchmarks for yourself.
i like the 7950's cheaper price and the free game bundled with it is enough to earn my vote.

Thanks guys for all your help, really appreciate it and especially the like to the 7970! All the 7970s that I have seen were around the £280+ mark, and for £240, it seems like a steal.

Do you all think that the 7970 beats the 760? And I would assume its better to stay with the AMD-AMD cpu to gpu rather than AMD-Nvidia (intel)...

Much appreciated!

I think you for sure should go with the 7970 at that prices it's a steal and in almost every test it is 10 to 20% faster than the 760.

The Real deal is when the Radeon card is overclocked ;)
