the HD 7950 is worth the extra 35 - 45 dollars over GTX 760. the rest is your choice. good luck. thumb.gif

But how much more FPS I would get in BF3 and other games with overclocked Sapphire HD 7950 boost with dual x cooler versus overclocked Gigabyte GTX 760? Because I don't know, if I should spend these 40 dollars more for 7950.

let me put it this way. with next gen consoles launching with 8GB RAM , next gen games are definitely going to have higher texture budgets. so even though you pay USD 35 - 45 extra the HD 7950 is better equipped for future games. there is value in the 1GB extra VRAM. moreover the extra memory bandwidth helps. also compute performance is much better on HD 7950 compared to GTX 760.

HD 7950 1792 sp , HD 7970 - 2048 sp . GTX 670 - 1344 cuda cores , GTX 680 / GTX 770 - 1536 cuda cores. GTX 760 - 1152 cuda cores

GTX 760 has 75% of GTX 680 / GTX 770 (1536 cuda cores) of shader and texturing performance while HD 7950 / GTX 670 are 87.5% in terms of shader and texture capability of their fully enabled counterparts HD 7970 / GTX 680.

HD 7950 and HD 7970 at average overclocks of 1150 mhz compete with GTX 670 and GTX 680 / GTX 770 at 1250 mhz.

So I'm planning to pick this model: http://www.kilobaitas.lt/PCI-E_16x/Sapphire/VGA_PCIE16_HD7950_3GB_GDDR5/11/11196-19-20G/CatalogStoreDetail.aspx?CatID=PL_433&ID=496220

And how far I could overclock that model? At what GPU clock, what voltage and what memory clock it wouldn't crash in games?

good choice. normally 1100 mhz on the core clocks is a common overclock at stock voltage. the HD 7950 boost has a stock voltage of 1.25v. max out the power control to +20% because the card throttles clocks at 0% power control. you could go higher than 1100 mhz but it depends on the card you get. some HD 7950 boost cards do 1200 mhz on stock voltage. memory should be able to do 1350 - 1400 mhz. sometimes even 1500 mhz. also focus on core overclocks because they give the most perf improvement (almost linear).

I just can't decide which one to buy... GTX 760 is newer, it has shadowplay, gpu boost 2.0, is cheaper, but only 2 GB. Radeon 7950 should perform better, but it costs more, it has 3 GB VRAM, but a lot of people had issues with drivers. Just don't know what to do... All I want is to play BF3 64 men Multiplayer on high at 70-80 FPS and be able to play BF4 and maybe next BF at least on medium, but above 60 FPS. So which card would you buy right now. I'll count votes and buy that GPU.

run a poll. my vote is for Sapphire HD 7950 boost.

I have a 7950 so ill address your concern regarding driver issues. In the past few months I've had none. Before that I had a few but none serious and I'm still happy with my 7950. If you update to newest you probably will not encounter any. You'll be able to play BF3 and 4 easily with either card. But like previously mentioned, the 3gb on the 7950 will be very beneficial soon. Especially if you plan on keeping this card for a while.

Yeah, I'll keep this PC for about 3-4 years, so I'll probably pick up Saphire 7950 and OC it.
