Would it be a sensible decision to buy a gtx 760 or would it be ok to go for a 7950 based on a price to performance ratio.

If you are on a tight budget than go for the cheaper one, it won't hurt you much.

My budget's around $300-350. I have read a couple of reviews regarding the new nvidia cards and the AMD 7950 boost edition as well.

Both a great cards, the performance difference is minimal, go for whoever fits your budget, either way is a great buy.

Thanx, however if you can also suggest a gaming pc configuration. My budget is around a $1000 .
My current pc configuration's quite out-dated. I have a core 2 duo 2.4ghz an intel motherboard an nvidia gt630 and 4gigs of ddr2 ram. Should i go for the new haswell processor or should I wait for the amd piledriver processors. I do like gaming a bit and I use the internet quite a lot for work... Thanx in advance...
