Going by the base model of each in this comparison, they appear to be pretty evenly matched or trade blows depending on the game. 3 monitor gaming on either card will be a struggle, however. With 3 x 1080p displays, the card will have to render at 5760 x 1080 resolution.

Considering the similar performance of the two, the tie-breaker is the price. The 7950 I listed earlier is $170, whereas the cheapest 760 that I'd recommend is $250 (http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MSI-760TFC&c=C... MSI Twin Frozr). For a difference of $80 you could get an extra 8GB of RAM, buy a game or two, save the money for a CPU upgrade, SSD upgrade, or other viable options.

If you can afford the GTX 760, I would just step up to another level and get the PowerColor Radeon HD 7970 for the same price as a 760 after rebate.


That's actually very smart. The 7970 is oodles better than the 760 so for the same price it's a much better option.
