GTX 760 4 GB or GTX 670 2 GB?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, so I am building a new PC and I see that the price of the GTX 760 4 GB model, and the GTX 670 2 GB model are pretty similar, and I am wondering, which would be better to buy? If it matters I am running 2 1080p monitors

I would go for 760 because its newer and it will probably have better driver support


PC Specs:  2x GTX 550 ti in SLI - Intel i7 2600k @ 3.4Ghz - Thermaltake Overseer Case - 8 GB Corsair Vengeance Ram - 1TB Harddrive - 500 Watt PSU that came with my old prebuilt pc lawl -  ASUS P8P67 EVO

Peripherals:  Razer Deathadder Black Edition - Razer Arctosa Keyboard - Logitech G53 Headset

Where i live the 670 2gb is becoming much cheaper than the 4gb 760, i'd get the 670. Both will be too weak by the time you need 4gb of vram @ 1080p

Indeed 760.

I thought you will get higher fps with the gtx 670.

Go 760 if you plan to SLI it later, if not then take 670

ofcourse GTX 760 4GB is better than gtx670 

Go for the 760 if you have 2 monitors.

I would go for 760 because its newer and it will probably have better driver support

760

Indeed 760.

4 gb or amd 3gb

Go 760 if you plan to SLI it later, if not then take 670



 

Guys, the 760 has a 256 bit Memory bus. It cannot use the full 4GB of VRAM. Fail. :|

 

I thought you will get higher fps with the gtx 670. 

The 760 is newer and is basically a rebranded, slightly overclocked version of the 670. They are basically the same GPU with a different name and slightly different settings.

I would get the 2GB 760. Because it cannot utilize the 4GB on that version of the card, so it is a waste of money.

 

7950/7970 if you can find one in your budget, but I would wait for 9XXX series.

This. Prices will drop and AMD usually has more VRAM anyway with the memory bus width to back it up.

^_^ Glad to see people mentioning the memory bus size

I literally read your thread about the memory bus just before coming here. :) My life. It always works out this way.

Actually I read a similar post to this before I created my thread then another similar one after I created my thread XD I know what you mean

I would go with an AMD GPU, but I forgot to mention that I'm going to use this PC for gaming, and video rendering with Premier Pro, so CUDA Acceleration would help a bunch

I have no idea how VRAM plays into video rendering. 

If I were you, I would go with a GTX 780 after the 9970 hits. Preferably the 4GB version. Only if VRAM matters for Video Rendering. I have no idea, but it makes sense to me that it would.

Premiere supports OpenCL so AMD is a great idea: http://blogs.adobe.com/premierepro/2013/05/improved-gpu-support-in-adobe-premiere-pro-cc.html

I remember the 760 being a rebranded 660ti. I had no idea it could stand up to a 670

This. Wait for the 9970 to drop.

Well, originally they were saying that it would be the 760Ti. However, it was not. So I do not know how much those GTX 7XX launch rumors are true or not. Regardless, it is a more powerful GTX 660Ti which means it is equivalent to a GTX 670 basically as it goes GTX 660 -> GTX 660Ti -> GTX 670.

Most of this is correct except it being a rebranded GTX 670.  From my understanding the GTX 760 is a rebranded GTX 660 TI, it uses the same GK 104.225 as the GTX 660 TI, but a wider bus slightly improved ROP's and clocks but less cuda cores.  The GTX 760 TI should be a rebranded GTX 670 if they ever decide to make one.  The GTX 760 should be close to a 670 but I don't believe it's more powerful.  the GTX 760 can utilize about 2.5GB of Vram so to say 4GB is a waste is true, but not a complete waste.  I'd still get an HD 7950 as they are 220 now.

Remove my quote son I recommended the 670.

 

It can use the full 4Gb technically, it's just that performance is gimped compared to a wider bus like the 384bit on a 7950 making it pretty underwhelming.

 

Agree in prinicple though, 90% of this forum wil lsee 'vram' mentioned, froths at the mouth and shouts: MOARRRRRRRR VRAMMMMMMMM

I won't call it rebrand/rebadge because the amount of shader processor is not the same. +1 for the 7950.
