If you have the extra money then go with the 770. It's worth it
a c 212 U Graphics card

Does this help ?



OK that was a trick question

Comparing component costs is a fools errant as your whole system goes faster not just ya GFX card. The 770 ($339) is 18% faster than the 760 ($269) or 26% more costly.... but of the rest of ya components were $1200.... then it's $1539 versus $1469 which is only 4,8% more expensive .... 18% more frames for < 5% more money.... to me that outs it the "no brainer" category , provided it's affordable of course.

A good 770 is running around $330, a good 760 is running around $260 (on Newegg). If you plan on playing the latest AAA titles at 1080p or higher on Ultra settings, the 770 is going to be worth the extra money. If graphics are stretching your budget a bit, and you plan on playing current AAA titles on at 1080p on Ultra, but possibly playing future AAA titles on slightly lowered settings, than get the 760.

The 760 is supposed to perform a little below my 670, which has been great. I play at 1080p and I play everything on the highest graphics settings. However, the 770 performs about 10% better than the 670, or 15% better than the 760. My personal advice, if you have the money, get the 770 (either ASUS or EVGA)

I have a GTX660 which is less powerful than a GTX760 and I have a GTX780 which is more powerful than the GTX770. I play BF4 exclusively. I am just as happy gaming on the 660 as the 780. You will be happy with either one especially if you plan on gaming with a single monitor at 1080p for the next 3 to 4 years.
If money is of no real concern go for the 770. If money is tight go for the 760 and enjoy it.
