Gigabyte GTX 760 Windforce 4GB vs Gainward GTX 680 2GB

I currently have an ATI Radeon HD 7870 installed in my computer. Because I wanted to see how well an AMD card performed as a bit of an experiment. I feel as though this was a bit of a mistake though, because stupid me has just realised that 99.9% of the games I run are all Nvidia optimised. So I looked at GeForce card equivalents of the 7870

I've narrowed it down to getting either a Gainward GTX 680 2GB, or a Gigabyte GTX 760 Windforce 4GB

I know there's no way I'll be utilising 4GB of video memory with one monitor, but where prices are concerned it'll only cost me another £10 for double the memory, memory bandwidth and pixel rate

Could someone shed some light on the performance of the Gigabyte card? Or should I settle for Gainward?

  1. The GTX 680 is the faster gpu. Also doubling the ram doesn't double the memory bandwidth or pixel rate.

    Gainward makes decent hardware, I've had one in the past. I'd get the GTX 680 because it's faster and you don't need the additional 2GB of vram.
