Video memory vs. core clock

So I do not know which is more important the core clock or the amount of memory for a video card. More specifically I can get the gtx 760 with 2gb of gddr5 memory at 1.08ghz or I could get a 7950 with 3gb of gddr5 memory but only 800mhz. Which one is better for gaming? Thanks in advance

    read some gtx 760 review because you can't compare apple with orange.

  2. If u are asking in general,i would go for the one with high core speed.u need extra vram if u are running multiple monitor or gaming at a very high res.2gb of ddr5 should be adequate.comparing these 2 cards are like the guy above me said,apple and orange.they both performs well beating each other in some aspect(vram,speed,bandwith).if u plan to oc go for 7950 as its oc quiet well.if not go for the 760.its like 5-8% faster.but driver wise,i would lean more towards nvidia.amd are good card(owner of 6770,7970) but their drivers update is what holding the card true performance.
