I just read this:

"Honestly at 1080p the 760 with 2gb of VRAM is more than enough. 760 is faster than 7950 as well. You can even go for the 760 Superclocked edition if you wanted. If you plan at running at a higher resolution 1440 or dual monitors then I'd consider the 4gb versions"

So if I bought the 4gb edition I'd be fine at 1080p on 1 screen? Or is this guy wrong.


You mean 2GB?
Yeah, it'll be fine.


Why'd the other people say it was a downgrade? Also no, I'd want the 4gb edition cause I like to mod.


Because AMD has a poor marketshare, and nVidia needs competition.

Crossfire that 7950, and buy a 120mm fan and put on the side to give air to your GPUs.

Personally I would wait another generation before upgrading. The 7950 and 760 trade blows. Also, are you sure that the GPU is causing problems in Skyrim? That game is notoriously buggy.

Just go with SLI 780's and you will be happy. Trust me.

I hope we see that price drop on the 780 soon. I really don't want to have to go with the R9-290x.

a $550 780 would be the sweet spot for me.

It's a sidegrade at best.

Lol what does that mean? Is it equal to an Un-overclocked 7950?

I say just ignore the 760. It's too weak to really be paired with 4 GB effectively, yet the 2 GB version is also not enough in some situations. I've played a few 7th-gen games that go well beyond 2 GB VRAM usage at 1080p (modded Skyrim went up to 2.7 GB VRAM for me). 8th-gen games will be even more demanding. Also, resolutions above 1080p are starting to become common, so there's that.

Also, the 760 isn't (much) better than the 7950. Aside from games that work better with Nvidia cards, the 7950 is actually better a lot of the time.

IIRC, you're the one who complained about the coil whine in your 7950. Overclocking it won't really help with that and it probably won't help with the microstutter you're experiencing.

I suggest getting a 670 4 GB or tolerating the problems you have with your 7950.
