Lightbulb 770 vs 760 (GPU)

im building a new gaming pc. i want to get a 4gb gpu. Im looking at the Evga gtx 760
Newegg.com - EVGA 04G-P4-3768-KR GeForce GTX 760 FTW 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card w/ EVGA ACX Cooler

and the Evga gtx 770
Newegg.com - EVGA GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card 04G-P4-3774-KR

i want to save money, so is the difference between the 760 and 770 minimal?

What are you going to be playing?
is it just for gaming or are you going to be doing other things with it?
What resolution are you going to be gaming at? i assume 1080p?
Have you already gotten the rest of the parts for your computer?
If not maybe you an tell us your max budget and we might be able to put together a build list that might be better than what you were originally going to get.

I always suggest getting the highest end GPU you can, so i would suggest getting the 770, if you can sell an arm and a leg, it would be even more worth it to get a 780, its a totally different GPU architecture based on the GK110 processor, which is a monster.
But here are some graphs you can look at that might help you decide.

benchmarks are from guru3d.com

look for the 760 and 770 in each graph and compare them against each other. These benchmarks are in 1920x1200, so thats a slightly higher resolution than 1920x1080 which i assume you are going to be gaming at, so figure in each game you'll get maybe 5fps better performance with each card because of the lower resolution. Remember, if you are using a 60hz monitor, you want the fps to be as close to 60fps as possible.

The 760 is comparable to a 670, or sometimes slightly lower depending on the game. A 770 is literally a 680 with a new name. That should clear it up a bit further.

Is it a huge difference? Yes and worth it.

To add to what Mquire said, a 770 is a 680, with a few improvements. A better fan curve so the fan doesn't ramp up and down constantly annoyingly, it has GPU boost 3.0, which basically lets you tell the graphics card, " as long as you stay under this temperature, overclock your self as high as you can ". There are a few other improvements also.

Yea Nvidia hasn't had boost as long as AMD.

The 770 also provides better all around overclocking due to a 6+8 configuration and beefier VRM section. Most likely will be my next card depending on how the 9790 fairs.
