Radeon HD 7950 3Gb vs GeForce GTX 760 2gb

The 760 has a voltage cap of 1.212V just like every other Boost 2.0 card, until the MSI AB voltage hack came out (which doesn't work on 760's). 7950's also gain more performance from overclocking on average and it's about even with the 760 at stock, so if you're overclocking the choice should be simple. 7950's are also cheaper; for $300, you should be looking at 7970's.

If you don't plan on overclocking, then it's all preferance in brand

Okay sweet thanks. And what's the difference between 2gb and 3gb? Like is there a point of having memory on your video cArds?

As someone who plans on buying a 760, this topic was not very reassuring >_> Sites seem to report that it gets better FPS on games, which is what I'll be using the card for, as opposed to benchmarks.

Even if you aren't overclocking, the 7970 is still a better card at the $300 price point. More VRAM can be useful in certain situations. More is always better however.

Yeah if you aren't going to overclock the 7970 is still better than a gtx 760. If you can find a GTX 670 for $300 then that would also be a great deal.
