7970 is better than the 760 by far, however there is no point getting either card as the 6100 will bottleneck them.

If you are tight with your budget, I suggest the 7970. The new line of AMD video cards is due out in a few days, however, expect to pay more for them.

In regards to calmuconroy's bottleneck argument, when you upgrade your computer, you will already have the 7970 video card, so, it is a form of future-proofing.

Check the power requirements of the 7970 and your current video card. The 7970 will draw more power when under heavy load, so, you might need to get a better power supply. If you do need a new power supply get at least a good 650 watt that is 80 PLUS certified

After installing your 7970 check to see if your computer can run games here:

Install the software and run the program

Please remember to save in your favorites folder for later use.
