How come the 760 does so bad in the 3D rendering stage!?!?!?!?
would anyone tell me which one is better for gaming?
The other benchmarks says GTX 760 is stronger and can boost it self to high clocks in games.
the place im getting my pc from is dino pc but on that website the 760 is cheaper and bye the looks of it it is better at gaming on the tests becuase thats what im using my pc for if you want to know the specs just ask me :)
I like a bigger bandwich, beats the hell out of a sandwich any day!
now the price of 7950 has gone down. so its even better then before
Price should be adjusted. It's cheaper now to buy a HD 7950. Also the clock should be adjusted too. The 800 Mhz is no longer avaible. I think only the 925 Mhz is avaible.
reasons to consider the 760 because of higher far cry 3 fps? or 780 because of higher bf3 fps? wat are you guys doing thats just lame
Ok thanks i was looking at the gigabyte card on amazon
Buy the radeon from Gigabyte the clock is 1000 Mhz and the bit is 356 so a bigger bandwich. the gigabyte is all in all cooler and more Quiet then the nvidia
The 7950 is only £10 more than the 760 which one should i get?
Thanks for reaching out to us Daniel! We wanted to highlight the price of different GPUs to help supplement people's research, but we didn't want to factor pricing specifically in our scoring algorithm because it's important to people in different ways.
Does the price difference between the gpus not factor in here
