Stretch your budget some and get a 7970 on sale for $300, or grab a cheaper 7950. It's easy to find them for $200 on sale these days.

There's also the 760.

I should add that the 7950 would be a better deal most likely.

Nah. 7950 and 760 are about even at stock, and the 7950 pulls ahead when you start overclocking.

How is the 760 better at stock? It's pretty deadlocked in frames, and the 7950 has superior compute power and more VRAM. I'd say they're even.

Don't look even at stock......(as far as gaming goes)

If OP needs compute power, then that is a consideration.

So it's (combining the two reviews) 5 FPS slower in one game when running at stock clocks? I can run my 7950 at 1050 Mhz (Boost runs at 925) without even adjusting voltage. I don't see your point.
