Was just looking for best priced GTX760's for a friend and came across this. Seems like a good deal, significantly cheaper than anywhere else. Palit are a great brand, my 660ti Jetstream is still serving me well, stays quiet and cool under load. This card looks to have pretty great aesthetics too if that's your thing.

4.04% cashback with TCB too.

I have this card its a monster, at stock it boosts well above advertised speeds into the mid 1200's and with decent cooling should overclock way more than that and it runs cool, i got mine around 4-5 months ago for £169.99 and at that time it was over £200 so a bargain.

Have some head as its a great card.

I'm building a new PC for a friend and was thinking of a gtx760 however is it worth having it for inbuilt Physx or should I consider AMD cards.

Seems like its not really worth it after doing a quick google, not yet at least. Can get away using an AMD card and in cases physx can cause drop in frame rate. Pretty much down to delevopers too and how they use it within the game. You could just disable on a game and an AMD card would run fine without it.

R9 280 for cheaper: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/msi-radeon-r9-280-gaming-3072mb-gddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-159-59-inc-del-amd-1945490
I maybe slightly wrong here as I just quickly searched it but yeah, seems like its nothing special or worth the extra cash.

Was only this morning I was reading about a guy who was discussing spotty performance on a 290. I've steered clear of AMD/ATI cards for quite a few years now just because of the amount of times I read people having issues with new games with them. Fine when it comes to benchmarks but new releases never seem to optimise for them as well as Nvidia cards (probably a money thing). Totally anecdotal so everyone's mileage may vary, but no denying the 280 is a better card in specs.

http://www.kitguru.net/components/graphic-cards/zardon/msi-r9-280-gaming-v-pny-gtx760-xlr8-185-shootout/ There is a decent comparison between the 760 and 280 non-x here.

The best deal was probably the novatech £169 Sapphire 280x the other day

This is a good read to outline why AMD have problems: http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2014/05/26/why-watch-dogs-is-bad-news-for-amd-users-and-potentially-the-entire-pc-gaming-ecosystem/2/

To cut it short its down to how Nivida is developing games with companies and programmers and not allowing AMD to have input thus they are more favoured to Nivida such as watchdogs. It's not AMDs fault as they want a open apporach to benifit everyone while Nivida is doing it for themseleves. Well that's their defence but even then games like Metro last light which is made for Nivida doesn't outdo AMD cards, I've played it with mine with PhysicsX off and worked just fine.

Obviously will depend how AMD now react however it will go Nivida's way if they aren't more proactive with developers and get they input to optimize settings for their cards. Mantle is also something to look forward to if they pull it off so I don't think it's still worth the extra money in this case. Only a few games are really set to work better with Nivida for now and AMD look to be making their move too.
