EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Video Card Review

Getting Graphic

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.

    This card is good for a user who does not want to have to buy a new power supply and continue to use the OEM 300 watt type PSU. This card is definitely good for that and it does run older games at top end settings. But let’s not get carried away and realize this card is bare minimum for gaming with todays games. Its not going to give you high settings and high frame rates and your dreaming if you think a $120 can do this. I have played COD Black Ops 2 and COD Modern Warfare and both play good but stumble occasionally. These are older games and do fine. But I doubt COD Black Ops 3 would run as smooth? Not without turning down effects and playing with lower resolutions. If your a casual gamer this is probably a good investment. But if your looking at buying a card to play todays games and beyond. I think you need to look further.
