7950, BF4 is already known to be able to use over 2gb vram. 2 months after release will also release the AMD Mantle Patch giving any GCN gpu extra performance. depending on how many developers choose to use mantle(high chance for large devs due to fact that it will also be optimized in the consoles since consoles run GCN as well)

as of the current moment, the 760 and 7950 are about the same in BF4 beta

I have a few questions regarding this area of GPUs. I am an avid DICE fan, however I do enjoy other titles as well. I'm not sure how important vram will be in games to come over the next few years, so I would love some advice regarding the cards mentioned as well as others in the price range.

What if I were to fork the extra bucks for the 4gb of vram on the 760 twin frozr from MSI? Is that worth the money for the performance?

If I grab a 7950, will I miss out on all of the PhysX particle effects found in planetside2, borderlands2, and so on?

If I chose to add another card in the future, will CrossFire be comparable to SLI?

Should we just wait until bf4 comes out and purchase one of these new amd cards that come with a copy of the game?

Sorry I have so many questions, I'd appreciate any advice!

I'm not sure if I should've made a new thread?

Do not buy a 4GB card unless you are at least willing to purchase a GTX770. If you are set on Nvidia (like me :D ) either spend the extra money with the GTX770 4GB or higher, be willing to turn down settings such as AA (if necessary) with any 2GB card, or wait for potential price drops and buy a sweet card in the near future.

My 2 cents.

You have no idea how awesome it would be to just buy a 770... but unfortunately, I cant justify spending more than $300 on a GPU. I'm pushing it already by bringing my budget up that high...

man get a radeon 7950 vapor-x by sapphire, the card's overclocking ability will outperform gtx 760... and people just cant buy a brand nvidia for convenience for just the physx support? how many games are out there sports on a full fledged physx?
now decision is yours, jut don't get driven by a freak fanboy of any brand.
