How is this GPU? Nvidia

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.


Wait a 670 is stronger than a 760? What would be a good 670 to buy? top tier brand
