How does a EVGA GTX760 SC compare to a EVGA GTX670 FTW?

Amazon has the 760 for $250 after rebate plus the new Batman game. Wondering if I should buy it and sell my 670. From what I see the performance would be basically identical (edge to the 670 for being the FTW edition), but what about power consumption / heat? Any worthwhile difference? And any new features the 700 cards have that the 600 cards don't?

GPU Boost 2.0 support, right off the top of my head.

From what I can see, is it just an overclock utility provided by nVidia? If so, how is it different than any other one out now?

670 should perform better in lower resolutions. 760 will perform better at higher resolutions.

Would you say 1080p is high, or are we talking higher/multi-monitor?

You'd be getting a minor downgrade and a $50 game you could've bought for $200 less.

Doesn't seem to be the case, even at 2560 x 1600 the 670's still winning every fight. By a frame or two at most, sure, but you can hardly call that an upgrade.

They trade blows, but a reference 670 will outpace a reference 760 by a few frames according to most benchmarks I've seen. The same will likely hold true with EVGA's factory overclock on both of them. Where I live, the 760's are much cheaper than their 670 counterparts, so it's generally not worth buying a 670 for a few frames difference, and definitely not worth trading one in for a 760.

Sell the 670 and upgrade to a 770, I figure.

The 670 is just about better in every way.

Stick with your 670.

If you were looking for a new card and were comparing the two the 760 would be a solid contender as it offers similar performance to the 670 but costs around $50 less.

Since you already have a 670, though, I would not advise scrapping your 670 for a 760.
It would be a side step at best and a slight down grade at worst.
