In a nutshell, Far Cry 3 is everything gamers missed in Far Cry 2 (after Crytek was tossed out of the franchise by Ubisoft) and even Crysis 2 (in which Crytek swaps the tropical paradise setting for grim, apocalyptic New York).

Not in every experience I've had with both, and I've had quite a lot...Maxwell might change that, though.
Calm down nvidia fanboys. I have own nvidia card but dont be stupid, with 280$ witch have the gtx 760 you can buy the r9 280x witch is a lot better than gtx760. In my opinion the 760 is WAY overpriced. Your smartest choise is to get the 280x for your money.
i dont know about you guys but in my country r9 270x is the best gpu to buy for its money(180Euros). i have tried to find another one more good in the same price but i didnt.
hey, i want the cheaper one :)
Man it's a fact that Nvidia is better than AMD like it's a fact that the sun is Hot...
LOL you remind of Apple fanboys, buying expensive products because its made by Apple. In this case, its Nvidia fanboys buying expensive products because its made by Nvidia.
Don't do what you don't understand - buy from Dell or HP or whoever you like...and don't try to hide behind the fake broken English
would recommend the r9 280 its a bit better then the gtx 760 and a considerably lower price atm
No bugs here. Been using ocd for 4 solid months with no issues. Can't say the same about my nVidia cards
Well, according to this site's "experts" I wouldn't wonder if they would say that the pentium is superior to the 9370, lol
Thank you Captain!!
Yeah, install the driver 337.88, n' enjoy :D
Your card bring you to the matrix. ASUS GTX690 + 337.88 drivers = no problems
Gonna call BS since a 7790 OC can play Bioshock Infinite at ultra at around near 60fps, probably would come out a tiny bit better with a R7 260x and for sure more with a R9 270. I smell some heavy BS in these numbers.
he said in arma iii tech noob
texture fillrate is not 23 in gtx 760 gayboss its 31.4
115 fps ?:D May made ​​me laugh :))
haha u ar ok i buy 280x from amd (asus) and i have matherbord from asus Maximus V Formula and not work( is work but i have 20 fps in world of warcraft) :))I had more fps without video card ... and now i have 2 x GTX760 from gigabite is so f.. op :D
I already bought it. And it's good. I can overclock to 1260 MHz and that's the max for GPUTweak.
Get the gigabite or evga ar better ten asus...
I replaced a 7970 with a 770 because the drivers were conflicting with my audio drivers
45 is very good in Arma, i dont know where you have been since arma II came out... Arma runs very bad, but 30fps feel very smooth
You have never used AMD, have you? You wont see any more problems with amd drivers than nvidia, and if they work on them a bit more, nvidia will be on the loosing side...
GG. 270x tested with... Opteron 6262 with 15 cores disabled and 760 with an i5?
