In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 260X v3 PowerColor OC v3 2GB Edition.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 16 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 260X. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 76.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 770 has a 16 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the R7 260X. This results in the GeForce GTX 770 providing 17 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 260X was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 770, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 260X v3 PowerColor OC v3 2GB Edition and the GeForce GTX 770 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 770 has 144.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 260X, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is massively better than the R7 260X.

The Radeon R7 260X v3 PowerColor OC v3 2GB Edition has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 784 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770 is 1667. The GeForce GTX 770 having 883 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 770 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 260X.

The Radeon R7 260X v3 PowerColor OC v3 2GB Edition requires 85 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 requires 230 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 260X and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 requires 145 Watts more than the R7 260X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 770 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 260X.
