    Cryptocurrency.
    It's something new. Googling it would be your best option
  3. For gaming the 770 is better because single GPU is usually better.
    For mining the 7850s would be better

    Gaming is my main goal.
    Mining would just be to get a few bucks.
    From my understanding two 7850's are faster. I also play bf4.

    If you play bf4 amd would be your best bet as its heavily amd optimised. Everyone I know with an nvidia card even 780 have bf4 lagging and rubber banding.
  6. Nvidia cards cant cyrpto mine as far as im concerned
  7. 2 7850's will crap all over the 770 for mining. They will probably be a little faster for gaming as well. You pay the price with increased noise and heat.

    i think the problem are more on the game itself rather than what brand gpu you use to play game. nvidia cards are doing quite well actually in BF4 even without mantle:
