I gave GeForce Experience a quick try for Battlefield 3 and it picked a higher AA mode that was still playable in BF3, so it does value image-quality.

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?
The 760 is a slightly faster card than the 270/270X. But not as much as the reviews say. And the 270/270X is much more affordable. Also the R7 260X reviews always show the 750Ti beating it. (this is false) They were using older benchmarks from when the 260X first was out. Now that drivers matured for the 260X it actually outperforms the 750Ti in almost all games now. And the R7 265 is the actual competitor of the 750Ti and is the same price. And the R7 265 is way above the 750Ti in performance and the R7 265 actually beats the older GTX 660. In all honesty the old GTX 650Ti is a much better choice over the 750Ti ,Both perform about the same, But the 650Ti is actually priced fair unlike the 750Ti. The GPU boss compare is close but they labeled the wrong texture rate on the 750Ti, The 650Ti actually has a higher textal rate of 59392 Mtexels/sec, And the 750Ti has a lower textal rate of 40800 Mtexels/sec, The only difference you will see in the two cards at the most is a few FPS. I know I tested both on a FX-8320 Rig and a i5 3470 Rig and a i5 750 Rig.
I love things about Nvidia and things about AMD but this comparison is bullshit. These cards are so comparable the only thing that sets them apart is a little heat and marginal power consumption. Performance wise you can flip a coin and pick one, they are that close. The Sapphire will do better in certain games and the MSi will do better in others.
