Better off with the MSI 4gb 760, the eVGA ACX fans have a pretty decent failure rate.

Zotac has a 770 on sale for $300 on NE currently.
I'd get that. Much better than a 670 and cheaper to boot.

This was $200 a little ago, but is still a much better deal. Top of the line 670 model, under $250 AR.

Edit: Whoops, not available.

Okay guys, real quick, just give me a quick response, a 670 (which apparently is a half step behind a 7970) or a 770.

I have this card in mind:

I want to know which card is honestly the better choice. You could go off the board even, i'm spending 300+ regardless, give me the best card you can think of in that price range so I can make my order today.

I always wondered why there is a 4gb 760 and 770, but there is only a 3gb 780...


it's easy..so people buy the previous models or spend more and purchase the 6gb titan

770 is better. R9 280x would be good at $300 but with prices jumping it's more expensive than a 770, is generally sold out from miners, and performs about the same. If you were willing to jump to $400 you could wait for R9 290 non-reference cards to come out from Sapphire, XFX etc, the 290 is insanely fast for its price, but reference cards run very loud and hot.

So basically, if you are buying a card today, 770 is a great choice.

^With that said, the card in the link I posted is perfectly fine to purchase? If so, thank you, you made a PC noob happy.

4GB is not going to benefit you when your bus width is stuck at 256-bit. If you really want something that can put that much VRAM to use then get an R9 290.
