a HD 7950 at 1100 - 1125 mhz matches HD 7970 Ghz(1050 mhz) which is on par with GTX 770 boosting upto 1150 mhz. the GTX 670 and HD 7950 at average overclocks of 1250 and 1150 mhz trade blows and on average are par perf wise .when considering average OCs 760 is a slower card. also once you hit 1200 mhz on HD 7950 you start competing with 1300 Mhz GTX 670s which is not possible on GTX 760. here is the Sapphire HD 7950 boost for USD 288.

another good option is the SAPPHIRE HD 7970 OC(1 Ghz) for USD 330. HD 7970 on average overclocks to 1150 mhz and will beat a GTX 670 at 1300 mhz. GTX 760 has no chance

if you are buying a GTX 760 go with gigabyte . custom PCB and excellent cooler.

for the 7950, you wouldn't recommend the vapor-x variant cooler over the dual-x? if not, can you explain why?

I´m a big fan of 7950s but if you are not into overclocking/tweaking and want to get something good out of the box then GTX760 (those factory overclocked ones like Gigabyte look pretty nice) is a good choice.

If you overclock and want to get most out of your components then definitely get the 7950.

the HD 7950 Vapor-x at USD 305 is ok.

i have heard better feedback on the dual x than vapor-x in general. you can ask in the forums. also the sapphire hd 7970 oc(1 ghz) at USD 330 makes the HD 7950 vapor-x a not so good deal.

Also what is the cooler on gtx760 you want buy? VaporX on 7950 is quite decent (its not dcu2 though).
The consoles will not be driving up VRAM usage. The PS4 has an equivalent of a HD 7850 which will run out of GPU power much sooner than it will use more than 2 GB of VRAM.
Better than AMD

That is a lot of non-sense. wth.gif

Especially when the PS3 is still very good 7 years after its release with a modified Geforce 7800 GTX

What does this have to do with VRAM usage? The PS3 has 256 MB of VRAM.
