Pros: Very easy to install into my HTPC build (SIlverstone ML03) and onto my Gigabyte mobo F2A85xm-d3h (see below for BIOS settings config notes). CPU = AMD a8-6600k. PSU = 460w (but you only need 250w from what I've read online). RAM = Corsair XMS3 4gb gddr3.
Right now i'm playing NBA2K14 religiously and the 7750 brought me into the highest 1080p with max everything and now running at 53fps.
Makes my 1080p movies look a tad bit nicer. It's noticeable to the naked eye on my 1080p 46" tv.
My Windows rating went from a 5.8 to a 7.9 with my current setup.
Cons: I had to call AMD support to figure out why my Windows wasn't working after installing this. More on what I figured out below, but this was just a PERSONAL con really. If you have the exact same setup as me I guess you'll have the same problem, but there are different speed bumps for everyone.
Other Thoughts: The problem I had was that when I booted into Windows 8 the first time after installing the 7750, all I got was an empty desktop and the windows bar at the bottom of the screen that only showed the date stamp and the lan connection. There were no desktop icons or even the quick select icons on the bottom left on the windows bar.
The problem I had was that I had to go into my BIOS and configure the GFX (graphics) to Primary = NB PCIe and to disable the Integrated Graphics completely (because the a8-6600k cpu is a gpu as well).
I had hoped to setup my system into DUAL GRAPHICS, but I'll save that journey for another day I have a couple of hours to kill to figure it out.
