Should I get the GTX 760 or 7970 non-GHz edition?

7970. The only real difference between GHz and non is that the GHz is a binned product. You can overclock a standard 7970 to the same levels in most cases.

It's not even close and any issues the 7970's had at launch have long since been ironed out.

That question rules out NVidia entirely.

Haha, I know that AMD makes quality products and cheap. But NVidia makes quality products as well, just costs a little more than AMD.

If they're the same price, I don't know why the 760 would even be a consideration.

760 has a better price/performance than 7970.

Something is wrong with that chart. You can get a 7970 for about $40 more than a 760 now, and its performance is significantly better.

just get an R9 280x. Avoid the power cooler and XFX ones tho. As AWESOME the xfx one looks, 850mhz is just too low of a core clock, you can only overclock it by a little. I will also say sat away from the MSI simply becuase my developed a coil whine 4 days into using it :(

3GB 7970 is the more bang for buck option. Especially considering that you get three free games if you get one.
