Gtx 670 vs 760 +2 factors

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi. So I finished my pc about a month ago and am using a gtx 460 right now. I'm looking to upgrade ans was gonna go with the 670 then the new series came out.nim wondering what should I get? The 760 is more affordable.im looking for something that can run any game on ultra above 30 fps. I was thinking a 760 because of the new architecture. Also I can overclock it. I do plan on sli'ing in the future to and the 760 price would make that easier. I'm just trying to get ready for all these great games coming *cough cough* battlefield 4.
I'd also like to play metro last light and crysis 3 on ultra above 30 fps. Even with sli I might overclock. So if it is 760 should I get the blower style so the air goes out the back?

First of all, the 760 is not a new architecture. It's the exact same GPU (GK104) as the 680, 670, and 770. It's a trimmed down version with less texture units and Cuda cores, but running at higher clocks.

For SLI I'd recommend blower style as it expels the hot air from the case rather than circulating it back in.

That being said, which card you get should depend on pricing. The 760 of course is $250 for a reference card, but if you could pick up a used 670 with some warranty left for around the same price or a little more it would be totally worth it IMO. The 670 is faster enough to justify a price up to $300 as far as I'm concerned, although at this price point I would go with a 7950 anyway...

Newegg has an MSI 670 for $289 after rebate right now. You can get a 7950 for under $250, sometimes as low as $200 on special. Definitely worth it as the 7950 is about on par with a 670 performance, but for significantly less money thumb.gif
