NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Mainstream GPU Review NVIDIA is launching yet another new member of the GeForce GTX 700 series today, the freshly minted GeForce GTX 760. Like the GeForce GTX 770 which arrived just a few weeks ago, the new GeForce GTX 760 is built around the company’s GK104 GPU—the very same chip used last year’s GeForce GTX 680 and a few other GTX 600 series cards. The GeForce GTX 760, however, targets a different market segment and is debuting at a much more palatable price point than its predecessors.

We’ve got a couple of GeForce GTX 760 cards on hand to show you here, a reference model that came straight from NVIDIA and a fully custom, factory overclocked version from EVGA, the GeForce GTX 760 Super Clocked with ACX cooling...

I have a 660 Ti. I think I'll wait for a new architecture in the 800 series before I upgrade.

Nice review Marco, that's a good pair of cards for a good price.

If I hadn't just bought two EVGA GTX-680s recently, I would be interested in them.

These 700 series are nice for those who still have a 500 or lesser series cards, but anyone with a 600 series ought wait for the 800's. I have a 660 ti and i know for sure that I'll be waiting for the 860 ti before I upgrade.

I really want to get a new graphics card but at the same time, if I do I might need to change my motherboard and processor and everything else too. I really want to get this one though the specs are looking amazing.

Interesting, but I'm more interested in a 660TI seems to work in similar maner, and can run most games on high or ultra.

Thanks for the review. I'm looking to upgrade soon and this could be the card considering the cost.

Man I really wish I'd waited to buy my gtx 670 I didn't think nvidia would come out back to back like that. I could have got 680 for what I paid for my 670

I like company's that make products that are great and at a lower cost and this graphics card just shows how great the company is and that company is called Nivida

This card has good specs and doesn't have a terrible price. It's a good buy.

I want this card but I can't, because I don't have the money for an ultimate pc to put this card in. :(

I run the 660 and almost every game I have can be run on ultra. However, if I can see needing the faster speeds if you're doing video rendering. Very nice card

AKnudson:

EVGA is a company that uses NVIDIA's chips in the video cards that they make. They have been a NVIDIA Partner for a long time. They have a reputation for quality and excellent customer service.

They are a good choice for PC Users.

I personally think the GTX 760 is the best bang for your buck out there right now, and has the better power to price ratio then any other gpu in the past 3 years

AKnudson - Nvidia designs the GPU's and EVGA, Palit, Galaxy etc. make the cards as well. It is similar to Intel or AMD processors found in HP, Gateway, Dell, etc. computers. Same product just different tweaks by different manufacturer's. Most gaming GPU's are either Nvidia (big Green) or AMD (big Red). It is like Ford or Chevy basically. Hope my layman analogies help you out.
