GTX 760 or 770?

Is it really worth the extra $100 770? Will spending the extra cash mean that the card will be a little more future proof?

Yeah a 770 is pretty powerful compared to a 760. I'd say its worth it. Sucks upgrading all the time.

"Future proof" is so dumb. Nothing is future proof; it just depends on your tolerance for performance vs graphics.

There is a 20%-25% difference depending on the game. A GTX 760 can probably be overclocked to stock GTX 770 levels, but a GTX 770 can be overclocked even further. It really depends on you. Do you think the performance increase is worth the $80-$90 difference? I have a MSI GTX 770 and love it btw. Of course I wish I had a little more power, but the gtx 780 ti is a little too expensive for me.

Yes its a stupid term, but its what people recognize right? Much quicker than me typing "Will this prolong the life of my card a little bit in terms of me not having to purchase a new one as quickly if I had gone with the 760"? What a messy sentence. I knew someone was gonna get upset about this term.

Might want to look at AMD. There are some very enticing non-reference cards
