NVIDIA didn’t sample too many GeForce GTX 750 video cards when they released the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and it looks like we found out why really quickly. Companies like EVGA have been able to release overclocked GeForce GTX 750 1GB cards that perform essentially the same as stock GeForce GTX 750 Ti cards and they are doing it at a lower price point! The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti 2GB video card left us with a better overall gaming experience when we really pushed the image quality, but you usually run our of horsepower before frame buffer. For example in Far Cry 3 we were able to get the card to stutter at 8x MSAA, but we wouldn’t game there 24/7 as we were averaging below 20 FPS. If you lower down the MSAA or disable it you are quickly over 30FPS and no longer using over 1GB of memory and that means the stuttering is gone. That makes the GeForce GTX 750 Ti 1GB graphics card very interesting as you can play pretty much any game title out there at 1080P as long as you dial in the image quality settings or give the GeForce Experience software a try. It should be noted that EVGA sells 1GB and 2GB versions of the GeForce GTX 750. Doubling up the memory will run you another $10 on the original MSRP.
EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Video Card Models:
When it comes to pricing the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB Superclocked card that we looked at today is hands down the best overall value. We wouldn’t suggest spending an extra $20 to double up the GDDR5 memory and you are getting a heck of a card for $120. EVGA also has a game bundle promotion going on right now where you get Painkiller Hell & Damnation, Deadfall Adventures and Rise of the Triad for free. Those aren’t huge game titles, but the fact you get any game titles is a nice perk for a $120 video card. The EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB video card is currently $149.99 shipped, so you are getting the same general performance and saving yourself some money if you don’t want to push the bleeding edge.
We are still impressed by what NVIDIA has done with the new Maxwell GPU and the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB Superclocked video card is a card that we feel was done right. We really like the fact that EVGA included a DisplayPort 1.2 connector on the card for G-Sync and the GPU cooler was more than enough to keep this card super cool and pretty damn quiet. We also enjoyed the overclocking headroom that was still left on this card and had a blast getting 1450-1500MHz clock frequencies on the GM107 Maxwell GPU!
Legit Bottom Line: The EVGA GeForce GTX 750 1GB Superclocked card is the card to have if you are looking to spend around $100 to $130 and are planning on gaming at 1080P.
