The difference never really breaks margin of error territory. I can't find the specific benchmark but the results were identical (aside from just having higher numbers in general) in SLI as well.

You guy's arguing isn't really helping me..

I feel I should reiterate that I'm getting the card for $225 if I go for the 760 4gb, which I believe is still less than the regular model on retail. Plus it was helping out a buddy.

I was mostly wondering if this card would sustain me (will it play anything a ps4 can play?) and if I should get the R9 instead. But it seems that the general opinion is Nvidia supports cards longer.

"Playing anything a console can play" really isn't a good question (imho). Games for consoles will be optimized for the systems (even if the console version has worse graphics, etc etc), so having a more powerful hardware in your rig than a console (which 760 or 280 is) won't guarantee that PC versions of games released in the future for consoles will be playable.

To directly answer your question, TC, $225 might be a good deal, but you have to consider how long he's had it, and if he's stressed it too much. It's only saving you $75 off a brand-new retail model, so, if he's a trustworthy friend whom you feel a need to help, go with that route.

As with the other posters, the 760 will, in the long-term, be better simply due to increased support from nvidia. It will sustain you for a reasonable amount of time (several years) before it becomes unusable. Hell, with an old GeForce 8800GT that I used up until March of this year, I was still able to run many newer titles on medium-low to medium-high.

That card is archaic. Go for helping your buddy.

Your friend is ripping you off. $225 for a used 760 is a joke.

Don't waste your money on a 4GB 760 or 4GB 770. I myself would have the 280. I have a 280X and I love it.
