GTX 760 192-bit (OEM)
I am wondering what you guys think of this GPU.

GPU Engine Specs:

1152 CUDA Cores
823 Base Clock (MHz)
888 Boost Clock (MHz)
79 Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)


Memory Specs:

5.8 Gbps Memory Clock
3 GB Standard Memory Config
GDDR5 Memory Interface
192-bit Memory Interface Width
134 Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)


Feature Support:

GPU Boost, PhysX, TXAA, SHIELD-readyImportant Technologies
3D Vision, CUDA, DirectX 11, SLI, Adaptive VSync, FXAAOther Supported Technologies1
4.3 OpenGL
PCI Express 3.0*Bus Support


More info. here: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-760-oem/specifications

I am buying a pre-built pc, and this is the card it comes with. I know it's not the standard gtx 760, so I am wondering what kind of performance I can expect from it. Is it good enough for gaming with max. settings or should I look for a pc with a better GPU?


Thanks!

good mid-upper tier gpu
gtx670 is slightly stronger, but 760 is newer

will the smaller bus width (192 rather than 256) and slightly lower clock speed than the standard gtx 760 be a problem? Also, will the extra Gb of vram (compared to the 2 Gb vram in the standard 760) make up for it?

I'm just afraid that the differences in the standard GTX 760 and the GTX 760 192-bit (OEM) are giving me slightly skewed expectations. It's virtually impossible to find a practical review online for the GTX 760 192-bit (OEM).

Newer GPUs that are 192bit are still fairly decent. Unlike in the old days where low end was 64bit, mid range was 128bit and higher end was 256bit.

What other GPUs are options from the pre-built OEM maker u are ordering from?
If they don't have good GPU options, might want to order the system without a dedicated GPU, then just add one of your choice.

OEM GTX 760 has 3GB VRAM, but the overall specs and performance of the OEM version of this GPU is lower compared to the retail version; which has 2GB VRAM, but higher performance specs. For a single 1080p screen, 2GB should be plenty, so I would opt for a higher performance GPU.

ram speed/bandwidth makes a big difference on gpu performance

ram ammount will allow for higher setings, but with the lower speed gpu/ram it can make it nearly useless
as raising the settigns will lower the framerate

I'm trying to get a good gaming pc from best buy or something like that, the one I have picked out is an Asus. It lists the gpu as Geforce GTX 760, and the video memory as 3Gb. From what I can tell, it has to be the GTX 760 192-bit (OEM) becuase that's the only gtx 760 with 3 Gb vram. Though the store page doesn't actually list it as such.

whats your budget for a gaming pc?

are you near a microcenter?

I'm trying to keep it under $1,200, but I could get closer to $1,500. I am unfortunately not very close to a microcenter.

you want 3GB VRAM at least. i disagree about 2GB vram being plenty. w/ the new generation of consoles we are going to see a lot of the major titles playing to their strength which is pretty much only in their amount of vram. this was all i ever saw various devs talk up, how more RAM will be great to play with. i actually feel some gypped by nvidia for their releasing the 780 w/ 3GB isntead of 4 & am considering upgrading to the 6GB Ti when its released. you can already see titles like watch dogs & dying light, hi-fi games released w/ the new gen in mind, recommending greater than 2GB VRAM. this will become fairly common.

i also don't think 1080p will continue to be the PC standard & 1440p will become quite common over the next couple years. that of course = more vram as well.

i personally would recommend splurging on a 780 if you must buy now (its the only truly 'new' gpu in the 7xx series other than the Ti, which will tack on another $200), if you can wait maxwell & the 8xx series will arrive at some point this year (i would guess fall).

NVIDIA Reference Specs are:

GTX 760 GPU Engine Specs:
1152 - CUDA Cores
980 - Base Clock (MHz)
1033 - Boost Clock (MHz)
94.1 - Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)

GTX 760 Memory Specs:
6.0 Gbps - Memory Speed
2048 MB - Standard Memory Config (also available in 4096 MB versions)
GDDR5 - Memory Interface
256-bit - Memory Interface Width
192.2 - Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)


Comparing specs, I would NOT get the OEM version for newer games, as it would be more comparable to a GTX 660 w/ 3GB, just going by the specs for the GTX 760 OEM version u listed above.

http://www.hwcompare.com/14801/geforce-gtx-660-vs-geforce-gtx-760/

If you want a better GPU for newer games, or AAA games made in a last couple years, I would suggest retail versions of GTX 670 or 760. Should be able to find 670 for much lower prices now, but alot of places are out of stock already. Venturing towards a 770 is a bit pricey. But might also be worth it to you if u plan on buying a new screen within next year or so, as we will see many more featuring NVIDIA G-Sync and 2560x1440

I would prefer the 780 (or 780 ti) but I'm having trouble finding a pc with one in it. I really can't build one, and I can't upgrade my current pc (because it's a ♥♥♥♥ing toshiba laptop). I live in a fairly small city, so the internet seems like my best bet, but the only "high end" systems I can find (without spending $2500+) are from ibuypower and cyberpower pc, neither of which strike me as well made or dependable (from what I've read online). It also seems like if I find a pc with a decent amount of RAM, Hdd space, and an i7 (really need it for photo/video work) then it comes with a 600 series GPU.

Is there a particular brand of pc you would recommend, I've ruled out dell and HP because of past experiences but I'm willing to rethink that.

Nothing really wrong with iBuyPower. But alot of people don't pick better options, especially for power supply.

Try looking on iBuyPower.com
Select their system confiurator, then start with the Intel Z87 build.

Select a decent case, like NZXT Phantom 410
and PSU such as 700W OCZ ModXStream Pro -or- Corsair RM750 Modular PSU.
