The GTX 750Ti was release in February 8 2014 just 3 years ago. It was based on the Maxwell Architecture. The aim for the GTX 750Ti was for those who had a OEM machine with a 300 watt power supply who wanted to game for the budget and doesn’t need to change the power supply . No need of 6 pin or 8pin connectors. It just uses a pci express slot by 60 watts. Since then Nvidia has release groovy performing cards for the money around the mid 150-170 dollar range in 2015 and 2016 (GTX 950 & GTX 1050ti) that requires at least 300-400 watts power supply. They continue this trend for efficiency throughout Maxwell/Pascal cards. Both high and low end cards.
The game i play on a regular basis is left for dead 2, Garys mod, and GTA5
GTA 5 low settings weekend drive around Los Santos
CPU loads on a core i5 4690 is very high up 90% loads up 4 cores. Because GTA 5 is CPU heavy game when V-Sync is off. But remember its on low settings.
Garys mod very high settings many zombies on screen and blowing them up
Left For dead 2 very high settings getting out of the hotel
The real reason
“its the best card”
- less power
- Enough horse power to play games.
- Good value
I am not a fanboy for AMD or Nvidia. They both produce the same graphics product. AMD&Nvidia both proved that u don’t need a PS4 or xbox one to play games for 400-500 dollars but on a machine u already have with a 150 dollar graphics card that you can upgrade inside your machine playing PC games ready. However Nvidia has really market themselves very heavily as a company that takes power efficiency quite serious than AMD from the low-high end market.
In conclusion the GTX 750Ti was a interesting card at the time. It can still handle newer titles unless played on low settings 1080p or 720p. I bought mines brand new at Frys Electronics for 169.99 around February 2016. You can by your GTX 750Ti used for about 50-75 bucks on Ebay.
