Comps

That depends on the game. On average the GTX 760 is a bit slower the the 7950 while the GTX 670 is a bit faster. In some some games that favor one arc over the other the differences can be substantial but overall the three cards are pretty close to one another.

No it's not, considering that the 670 is £210 and the 7950 is £170.

I don't know what you are trying to say here? Thous benchmarks say the same thing I said.

Are you trying to make an argument that the 7950 is better bang for buck? If so then yes I would agree if you assume that the GTX 670 is indeed is significantly more expensive.

That is no longer always the case as the prices have been heavily cut and you can find them for around the same price as an 7950. Hell I'v seen shops sell GTX 670's for less then their cheapest 7950.

Edit: for clarity
