Specs: Win7, E6550, 4GB DDR2
Hi,
I presently have a Zotac GTX 550 Ti.
I am thinking of upgrading this to a GTX 750 Ti.

I am not sure if the performance is worth it and if I will see major performance improvement.
One website actually stated that the 550 would perform better than the 750 with high AA.

Any inputs on this matter will be very helpful.
Regards,
Sarosh.

✔ Best Answer
The GTX 750 Ti is much more energy efficient so there will be a huge power savings. And it's definitely a better gaming card so if you can get it at a decent price & you have a buyer lined up for the 550 Ti, it would be a worthwhile upgrade.

Hi,
Would it be safe to say that the gtx 750 ti would give me about 30% to 40% improvement in almost all games then?
I actually have 3 cards with me now:
xfx 8500 (fanless)
zotac 9600 gt
zotac gtx 550 ti
Additionally, my current motherboard has an inbuilt graphics chip too.
I am not finding any sellers for any of these cards, but I am very tempted to buy the 750 Ti anyway.

Another friend said that my current 550 card will actually perform the 750 card with AA on, which I found a bit hard to believe, but he may be right.

If you don't mind, could you please explain how the GTX 660 gets +12fps over the GTX 750TI?
The 7xx card is a higher series as well as a Ti card, but yet the GTX 660 gets more fps than it?

You can't necessarily go by the model numbers. You might think that since 750 is numerically greater than 660 that it's the better card, but that is not the case. The GTX 660 is much better. You need to compare the specs, not the model numbers.

Look at the differences in Render Config & Memory Bus/Bandwidth:

EDIT: but also look at the huge difference in power consumption.

Hello again,
I have just ordered myself an Asus 2GB GTX 960 card and hope this will be much better than the gtx 750 TI.
I have two monitors both connected by vga cables. I have the required dvi - vga adapters.

But the gtx 960 only has 1 dvi port. I has an additional hdmi port and 3 display ports.
So I will be using the dvi adapter to connect 1 monitor, like I am doing now.

For the second monitor, should I buy a hdmi to vga adapter, or should I buy a display port to vga adaptor? What would be the pros and cons of each?
Regards,
Sarosh.
