In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 260X Asus DirectCU II 2GB Edition are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition.

The R7 260X has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 750. This results in the R7 260X providing 26.9 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 R7 260X has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 750 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 260X providing 0.2 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 GTX 750 was released less than a year after the R7 260X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R7 260X has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 750, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R7 260X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R7 260X has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 750, which means that the memory performance of the R7 260X is slightly better than the GTX 750.

The Radeon R7 260X Asus DirectCU II 2GB Edition has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 260X is 838 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 750 is 804. The R7 260X having 34 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R7 260X delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 750.

The Radeon R7 260X Asus DirectCU II 2GB Edition requires 115 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition requires 55 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 260X and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 750. The R7 260X requires 60 Watts more than the GTX 750 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R7 260X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 750.

Cooling Solution
DirectCU II achieves 20% lower temps with twice the dissipation area and 6X greater airflow then reference design.

Benchmarks Indicate no Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R7 260X.
GeForce GTX 750 Palit StormX OC 1GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 750.
This edition comes with a custom cooling cooling solution which by itself will allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 750 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Furthermore, it comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was raised from 1020MHz to 1085MHz, while the Turbo Boost is now of 1163MHz, instead of 1085MHz. The operating memory clock was increased to 1275MHz.
Further overclocking can be achieved easily, as the GPU has great OC potential.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is around 6% better than the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 and thus this card is slightly faster than Radeon R7 260X.
