Nvidia or AMD? GTX 760 or HD 7950?

I have been thinking its about time for a upgrade, but I cant choose between the 2 cards, they costs the same but the 760 is better than the 7950, many people recommend me getting a AMD.

I just had a chat with another Member the 7950 and 7970 will mop the floor with the 760 Overclock it or even flash the 7950 to 7970 ghz bios and you will be full on tearing it up

AMD Radeon HD 7950 w/ Boost Versus NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 - Page 13 of 13 - Legit Reviews Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Better idea of what to choose they are about the same but 3gb will be more effective

That in the end makes a big difference you won't be limited by resolution with 3gb as opposed to 2 gb Vram

You can also flash a 7950 to a 7970

I use NVflash, but that is for Nvidia gpu's. I will try and find something for AMD. Found this

Download ATIFlash 3.99 | techPowerUp

This will show you how to flash and where to get Bios'

it basically allows you to run the card at a higher clock speeds without the use of a overclock program that has to startup with windows. the risk there is you could break the card perminitly. usually the warranty dosent cover that either.

if you are not bias with the manufacturer, i would just get the cheapest one. either way, with the CPU you have and the resolution you are running at, both cards will be bottlenecked. however if you upgrade your CPU, you will be able to play EVERY game on the market at max settings in the next 5 years at that resolution.

I am using a AMD FX 8350, srry for the old specs. But would it bottleneck? I also looked around on Newegg and found a list of cards:
