I can get one of these cards at the exact same price, No difference whatsoever in the price, which one should I go with? Assuming I'll be running a 1440X900 resolution monitor for a while and a 1080p monitor later ( What i mean is, I'll be running a 1440 X 900 monitor until I get a 1080p one, and when I do I'll be using it as a second monitor with the 1080p one as my main one.. A dual monitor setup)


Which one should I go with when the prices are identical?

The 760 and the 7950 are really similar. For 1080p on a single monitor setup, it would go back and forth based on what cards the game was optimized for.


Just a heads up, though. The Sapphire 7970 3GB ($299) is neck and neck with the GTX 780 ($650). The fact that the 780 and the 7970 are very similar for gaming, with such a huge price difference, blows my mind. This kind of hints to the fact that Nvidia over charging for the GPUs they put out. AMD is almost matching performance, for 1/2 the price!

Edit - Monitor assumptions incorrect.

^You're totally wrong about the performance with a dual-monitor setup.

Yes, AMD has the advantage with something like a triple monitor setup... where you're gaming on all three screens.
But a second monitor used just for information display or even video playback uses so little of the GPU resources it might as well not be there.

Also, the 7970 is about on par with a 680/770 (just ever so slightly behind a 770). It can't compare to a 780. Come on...

The price of the HD 7950 and the GTX 760 superclocked are the exact same thing with no difference whatsoever where I live, Physx Is not important to me. I'll probably go with that unless someone gives me a reason to go with the GTX 760.

Well, these benchmarks prove that it is very close to the 780.

Minus the games that were optimized for Nvidia, the benchmarks prove that the 780 is not too far ahead.

There is no way I would pay an extra $300+ for 15 more FPS.

Any OpenCL the 7970 actually comes out on top.

I would say that the 7970 is a better card, by far, for price/performance.
