I think you've ballsed up the calculations.
With equivalent edge length, the volume of a sphere is about 52.4% of a cube.
4pi/3 x r^3 for spheres so for a sphere of radius 1, V = 4.19
Equivalent cube(edge length 2 x sphere radius), V = 8
Sphere volume is ~52.3% of the equivalent cube.
Well, it looks like I'm building a new PC for a friend, too.
I've made the first purchase toward that: a GTX 760. Still need to wait on other financial things to sort themselves out before I go buying the other parts.
So far, it's working well in my own PC. Already blows away that old GTX 480, and MUCH cooler-running to the point where I don't feel the need to waterblock it if it were my own. No wonder people like Gigabyte's Windforce non-reference cards so much.
I'm even thinking of getting one for myself at this rate. I said I'd wait 'til Maxwell/GTX 800, but I'm seeing "good enough" performance here already from my first impressions. Besides, whenever I do replace the graphics card, I'd just offer the GTX 760 to my friend for a SLI upgrade.
