The GTX760 is fractionally faster but the HD7950 can be had for less than $200 after MIR so better performance for the price. I would get the 7950.

There are some great PhysX games coming out in the next few months, including Call of Duty: Ghosts, Batman: Arkham Origins, and the Witcher 3. Best to stick with the GTX 760 so you can enable the full maximum settings in those games. The GTX 760 is a faster card anyway, by a good 10%.

For stock performance, gtx 760 is better than the hd 7950. If you intend to overclock, then hd 7950 would be perfect with a performance near the hd 7970 when overclocked. Nvidia are known for their better drivers than AMD's, but you can buy the hd 7950 with its more vram if you intend to play Bf4 maybe or other games at max setting of AA and higher resolutions although the gtx 760 will still be fine for 1920x1080.

I would suggest Evga or msi gtx 760. Evga for its customer service and msi for its technology(Dust removal technology, More cooler and quieter than other cards,twin frozr iv thermal design, millitary class iii components, etc). As far as hd 7950 concern's i saw ur future build that u'll going to use a 500watt psu then u should remove 7950 from ur list. Gtx 760 will always outperform a 7950 at its stock speed. Since a 500watt power supply is not good enough to oc 7950 then i suggest go for gtx 760 for sure. I'll recommend Msi gtx 760 Twin frozr. As it can be easliy oc'ed to 1163 mhz which is pretty high enough for ur gaming needs. Thanks to nvidia's new technology GPU BOOST 2.0. And if u r worry about 3GB and 2GB comparisons then let me help u with this. If u r gaming @ more than 1920 x 1080 then a 3GB 7950 version u shud get otherwise i'll prefer 2GB 760 for sure..

Nice pointing out to the psu, but the point is, if that he got the hd 7950 for say 30$ or 40 less http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-... (if he is buying from amazon, it will happen, if buying from local shops, maybe they have their pricing scheme), he can invest this 30 bucks in a lot better psu that will be enough for overclocking the hd 7950 easily, or he can even buy this 600W for same price as the 500W and oc with it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx? Item=N82E16817139028&Tpk=CX600 . I think the power supply isnt the problem, but the op should decide if he needs to overclock or not, if he needs phsyx or not.

First of all the card u r suggesting to OP is a reference cooler design which gets heat up easily even @ mild overclocking. I would rather suggest a sapphire vapor-x 7950 if OP really into overclocking. And also Cx(Builder series) is not meant for good overclocking, get at least GS 600 for oc'ing a 7950 to have the full juice out of the card. But it is only applicable when u r gaming @ more than 1920 x 1080 resolution. At full HD resolution both cards have the same performance.
Extra vram will not be necessary if gaming @ full hd.
Gigabyte 7950 is better in cooling than a sapphire one and they comes @ same cost
