GTX 770 4 gb vs GTX 960 2 gb

I was just given a gtx 960 2 gb as from a friend. I already have a gtx 770 4 gb. Is the 960 better? I ran both through Cinebench, and the 960 has a higher score, but I ran Catzilla, and the 770 came out on top. I know Catzilla is probably not the best base, so I want more opinions.

Cinebench is a horrible gpu benchmark if you want to know about gaming performance.

 

Why not just test a game you play?

I've been meaning to do that, but I'm not sure what program I should use to see how it goes. Any recommendations?

What games do you play? Why not test those games you play? It doesn't need to be a benchmark, any game will work fine.

Ok. Ill play some Skyrim SE and see how it goes. I just prefer numbers since the 960 would be the bigger one, but due to the less ram, I wanted to get specific. Thanks for your help.

960 is no better and not worth buying (under common second hand prices for one) when you have the 770.

I know. It was given to me luckily, so I'm looking to see if there is even a slight difference before I decide which one to use and which one to sell. My friend's first thought was "SLI them!" but I definitely know that won't work.

you have both on hand.. there is no reason not to compare them in the tasks you actually do, in the environment you actually are.

 

for all we know, one card may be better, but it may end up unbearably loud or something in your specific use case. (for example.)

I just ran the beginning of Skyrim SE on the 960. ran between 40 and 60 fps. Now to test the 770 again and see how it goes. Thanks for your input.
