Which card should I get a hd 7950 (3gb) or a gtx760 (2gb) they work out to be about the same price on pc part picker (I'm in Australia)? Which one would be better or can you recommend a better card for a little over au$300?

7950 if you OC, 760 if you don't.

The 2 GB of vram on the 760 may hold you back as the next generation hits.

The 7950 has better specs, and it's faster when overclocked.

At stock clocks, they are very comparable. The 7950 will pull ahead a bit if you overclock.

yer that is what I was thinking the extra vram pulls the 7950 ahead slightly even if the rest of the specs end up pretty similar

I went for the GTX 760 but mostly because I got a good deal on it.

However, there are also other things to consider. If I am not mistaken, AMD currently has that "pick 3 games" or whatever promotion going, while Nvidia has a similar kind of promotion that (I think) includes Batman Origins.

If there are any games included in the promotion that you would otherwise buy at retail price, then I imagine that might influence your decision.
