What will a Geforce 760 do for me that a Geforce 750 Ti won't?

I know the 760 is significantly better by the numbers, but it adds at least $90 to the cost of the computer. At a glance, the 750 Ti seems like the best bang-for-the-buck Geforce card.

Let's say I like to play my games at 1920x1080, or at 1280x720 if the game supports 3D vision (great or better). Maintaining a good frame rate is paramount. Having high settings is important. I don't care too much about AA/AF. Games from the past five years are more on my radar than games from the next five years are. PhysX might be cool, but it can be lowered-disabled if the impact to frame rate is unforgivable.

What games will the 760 play satisfactorily, that the 750 Ti will not?

Also, I am concerned with noise levels and heat levels. Will 760 cards be louder/hotter? For that matter, would a 750 non-ti be quieter/cooler?

Put you out of pocket an extra 100 bucks.

I would say the 760 would do physX at a level the 750 ti does regular levels without it

it's a 30% increase

a 770 might be better a 780 might last you for life
#4RoboXgp89Posted 8/31/2014 10:42:28 PM
so honestly if you have a new i5 get a 780

i3 get a 770

otherwise get a 750 ti or a 760

How is anyone supposed to define a satisfactory level of performance for you, much less know exactly what games from the past 5 years you're most interested in? Just compare some benchmarks between the cards you're considering and judge for yourself if the better performance of the more expensive one is worth the extra money.

Anandtech's benchmark page is a good place to start: http://anandtech.com/bench/GPU14/815

another option would to go with a r9 280. its slightly more powerful than a 760 and cost a bit less.

Pretty much anything 750Ti runs in the 45 range, 760 should do 60+.
Pretty much everything the 750Ti range runs in the 20s, 760 should do ~30 or better.
Performance to noise ratio, a 750Ti with a good cooler should be the value point due to it's 40~75w tdp, as apposed to 760's 150~180w tdp. 750 isn't a significant improvement over Ti.

I'd suggest getting the 760 since you mention playing at 1920x1080 and wanting high framerates and high settings.
You may be more interested in games with in the last five years but there are still plenty of games in the last five years that can push a 760 on high at 1080 to reach 60fps.

They're both the best bang for the buck cards from their respective companies, as far as frames/$ are concerned at least.

If you care about gsync there's more than a handful of 750/750ti models that don't support it by virtue of not having a Displayport. There might be a 760 without it but I haven't come across it yet.
