Looking to upgrade my video card. I will be primarily gaming on a 1920x1080 display.

It's a pretty nice upgrade

Irrelevant. That page doesn't have the 760 in its drop-down list.

I am going to be selling my 760 in a couple of days when my new card shows up.

It's not that it isn't a good value for the money, it totally is. The problem is that I game at 1440p and Skyrim with the textures and mods I use hits that 2gb VRAM wall (and I'm afraid that future games will as well.) I could always turn down the resolution or use cruddier textures, true, but I didn't buy this monitor to do those things. I bought it to make games (and photos) look great.

For a 1080p monitor, I bet the 760 would be fine. You have to realize when you go from 1080p to 1440p that you're adding close to 80% more pixels...it's almost like asking your video card to run a whole extra 1080p monitor. I should have gotten a beefier GPU from the start, but I underestimated what I'd need.

i've got one. i generally stay at 60 fps in battlefield 3 at 1080p and max settings, but it dips sometimes. like, caspian border always seems to drop my fps into the 50s. i was surprised to see my fps dipping into the 40s in strike at karkand

might be something else causing the issue though, because turning MSAA down from 4x to 2x didn't do crap

Could be CPU related as opposed to GPU.

I'm looking to upgrade as well TC, but from a 6850. Everything I've read about the 760 puts in in a good spot for price/performance ratio, just check some benchmarks and compare your card as well if you can.

Yeah, BF3 multiplayer can be really CPU demanding
