Even in 1440P with AA maxed 4 GB is not faster or better

If you're planning on overclocking, and you can get a good non-reference 7950 at the same price as a GTX 760, you'll probably get better performance out of a 7950 as in general the seem to overclock great and scale well.

IMO, Stock/Stock 760 > 7950 OC/OC 7950 > 760

Thanks for including all those old games....Here's the deal: If you plan on going SLI, it will be beneficial in another year or so to have 4gb. 760's in SLI have enough gpu horsepower to utilize over 2gb of vram. The goal is to not be limited by 2gb. I do agree that you'l never use all 4gb though. So 4gb is overkill, and 2gb is a limitation with more than one card. With next gen consoles giving developers access to over 5GB of vram we're likely to see texture resolutions in games go through the roof in the near future. IMO if you're going SLI you be glad you spent the extra $80 on more vram.

They ll have access to 5gb of RAM total split between VRAM and amongst other stuff. The GPUs in the next gen consoles will not be powerful enough to utilize any more then 2gb VRAM IMO.

Actually the ps4 has 8gb of ram with about 3gb of it allocated to operating system services. That still leaves around 5gb left for the apu.

7950 is probably a slightly better choice over a 760 IF you plan on overclocking, i'm pretty sure that the 256 bit bus on the 760 can't utilize the full 4gb of VRAM anyway. On 1080p, you won't use more than 2gb unless you play heavily modded games, and even then, you generally don't. Either a 760 or a 7950 is a good choice, personally i rather Nvidia, but if you can get a 7950 with the games, then you can't go wrong!
