Rest of the specs:

M5a97 Evo R2.0
G.Skill RipJawsX 4GB*2 1600
HAF 912 (with Window but not advanced)
WD 1TB blue
Seasonic S12ii 620W

I am from india so the pricing here is different!
7870 - 242$
Gtx 760 - 320$

I will be using this same rig for around 4 years before i make a new one.
I want to be able to play games at high-very high settings@1080p [Not ultra/Max] for the next 2 years then i can downgrade to mid settings or reduce the resolution or get a new gpu. [Depends on my financial situation during that time - i.e if my dad allows :p  ]

NOTE:Retailers in mumbai [ my city] dont provide any FREE GAMES

Extra Info: I'll be playing almost all the current gen. previous gen, pre-previous gen, next gen, next-nextgen games! [Pretty much every game - but my alltime favourites are The Elder Scroll series, GTA series , Counter strike series , Splinter Cell series , Tomb raider series , Dota1/Dota2 , Looking forward to play watch dogs and also want to play sleeping dogs,Far cry3, hitman absolution and crysis3!

What about FX6300 + 7950 vs FX 6300 + 760?

six of one, half a dozen the other. The GPUs are about equal. The 760 edges the 7950 out in some places, but in the real world you probably will not notice a difference between them.

I am thinking of going with the FX 6300 + 7870 because we are on the edge of New Console cycle and a change in node architecture. I dont want to spend much now.
I think the 7870 will manage to play the games at high [not very high or ultra or maxed out] for another 1 year and then on mid for the next 6-7months after which i'll upgrade my gpu .. How is the plan? The max i could do is try and find a 7870XT [ But it's not available with the retailers atm :(  ]

Definitely FX-6300+GTX 760, it is my current specs and i have nothing to complain about, most games will run smooth @1080p. Furthermore, GPU is more significant than CPU in gaming and GTX 760 is the best one in your list.

The gtx760 IS new. You won't have to worry about it getting old for a long time. There is no 'change in architecture' right around the corner.

The obvious choice is the gtx760. Otherwise you are just spending money, in order to have to spend more money.

On an average only 10 AAA TITLES are released every year. So for the next 1.5 years I only wont be able to play 15games at very high settings right?
If I take the 760 I probably wont.be able to play 7games at very high settings?
Also not necessary I will buy all those games? (they should interest me.,also I wait for sales) so I can play those games after 2years when I upgrade and buy them in sales..
is this logic sensible? or is it flawed?

IT would make sense if you wait to buy some games, more so, to get the gtx760. It will NOT struggle with nay games for a long time.

Here's a good comparison: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-HD-7870-vs-GeForce-GTX-7...

Here's another good one: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_7...

There are a lot of threads on here discussing the difference, but it to sum them all up, the 760 is more powerful but costs more. You can see the different specs from the above links and just decide for yourself if it's worth it. My experience tells me that if you're getting a newer premium card (like either of those), you'll be fine so long as you're not a graphics enthusiast. If you just want to enjoy your games with good graphics, then the newer cards will all give you that experience for a few years.

I've had my 6850 for 3 years now and I don't really feel the need to upgrade (I upgraded it from a 4850, keeping my PC the same for 5 years now, 1st gen i5 processor). If Dota2 will be your primary game in the long run, you won't find any reason to upgrade your card even 3 years from now.

Try to get an XT/LE model 7870. Makes a BIG difference. The card is basically a 7930.
