Nope, they're a bit more expensive than the 760

Well, if you haven't pulled the trigger yet, NVIDIA just released the 900 series Friday. The 760 should drop in price very soon, and the 960 should be released in a few weeks.

Not sure how long it will take for those prices to shake out over there.

760 and 770 prices are already dropping.

Newegg has MSI GTX 760 OC for about $189 after discounts and mail in rebate. (offer ends 9/24) and the GTX 770 for about $250 after discounts and MIR.

I have one of each in two different system and the 770 is well worth the extra $$$.

This is just one vendor (MSI) as an example.

Absolutely. 1 week ago, the 770 was a $350 "High End" GPU. That should keep you future proof at 1080p for a long time.

Of course, if the trend keeps up, the 960 will be slightly faster than the 770, have more RAM, and use way less energy. Who knows what it'll be priced at. I would wager it would be around the $250 mark, but you'd probably have to wait until late October, last I heard.

But that wouldn't happen till the 900 series come to India. Anyways, I'm planning to build it at the end of this year.

RE: Help for building PC, first timer, approx $900
Understood. Hopefully, the 900 series will be there by the time you build, at the end of the year.

It might be obvious already, but don't order the parts until you're ready to build. New tech will continue to arrive and prices should continue to drop.
