After looking at the huge price drop I would also go with the AMD card. You won't get a better resale value or better SLI scaling than an NVIDIA card but it is more or less equal to the performance of the 770.

I read a few other benchmarks and it appears that's really just based on the specific game. In that article, the 770 wins on Battlefield 3 and Unigine Heaven but the 7970 wins on Metro: 2033. This was at 1600p, mind you.

Guys I want a nvidia in hopes skyrim won't stutter anymore... No AMD please. Want to move from my 7950 to a good nvidia card. What's better between 670, 760? How much of a leap is the 770?


Out of those, I'd have to say the HD 7970.

770>670>760

Look at a few benchmarks for the 770. Nvidia won't fix your stutter in skyrim. Its a bad engine.

Well, I went from a 760 to a 770 several weeks ago, and it's a substantial upgrade. I'd say my average performance probably jumped about 30-40% although it depends on the game. If I was on a 1080p monitor, I may have been satisfied with the 760, but I was using it to drive a 1440p monitor, and that really made it struggle. Ended up selling it and getting the 770 4GB, which has enough muscle for me to run most things at a steady 60fps at 1440p. The most challenging game I've run into so far is the Witcher 2, which runs at 25-30fps with ubersampling on, and about 55fps with it off.

I'm guessing that if you bought another 7950 you'd get the same results.

Skyrim isn't even worth buying a new GPU for.

When I bought my 770 I re-downloaded Skyrim and spent about 2 hours downloading and installing over 2GB of mods.

Long story short. It wasn't worth it.

How come? Also I got the cash.

Also @ Snuckie, I know that's why I want an nvidia.
