Watch out folks, things are about to get graphic. Sorry, I am a sucker for puns. But seriously, today we’re going to be checking out the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 TI. Aside from having one of those ever-lengthening industry names, the 750 TI has been called the “Xbox One killer”, as well as having the reputation for producing graphics that rival the PS4 as well as higher end graphics cards.
I find those claims extraordinary myself, especially since I have yet to find any evidence from a reputable source. I have serious doubts that this card is capable of playing many of the newest games on High (and even Ultra, if you believe the hype) settings. So what’s a girl to do? Test that motha and see what’s what.
So what comes in the box? Well, the card, obviously. But that’s not all. There’s also a handy disc preloaded with drivers and software to keep the card running smooth. There’s a metal EVGA emblem to stick on your tower, if bragging is your thing. There’s also a book of information that seems to be in about ten different languages, and a folded poster of a guy holding a head. Not sure why they threw that poster in there, but it looks cool.
I expected the video card to be this goliath of a monstrosity that I had to plug a couple of molex cables into. Something that would take up so much room that I would have to remove components in order for it to fit. But it’s compact, reaching to the end of the PCI-E socket and no further. It is thick enough to cover whatever slot is below it, however.
A rather thick fan sits inside a flat black plastic housing to cool the card’s heatsink. As for connections, we have a trifecta of HD availability. There’s a DVI port, an HDMI port, and a Display Port… er… port. HDMI audio is supplied by connecting the internal audio on the motherboard to a 4-pin connecter on the card itself.
