Pros: - No extra power plugin needed.
- Small form factor length, easily fits in mid-tower HP p6520F.
- Runs New Vegas, Borderlands2 and Skyrim at 1080p with decent frame rate!
With 1080p max settings, i'ts worth replaying slightly older games to get a new experience in sharp clarity.
Cons: Dual Monitor people: Check your power supply, not only for watts, but for amps!
If you have an older power supply (from around 2010ish) and it's 400+ watts, and you require dual monitor, make sure your power supply is at least 20 amps on the 12v plugin to your motherboard. If it's less than 20a, one of your screens may not register. Research your power supply specs.
If you don't require dual monitor with your older 400+w power supply, that is less than 20a, GTX 750 ti may still work with 1 monitor. So technically you can be below the system requirements (400+w, 20a min) and may still get it to work with 1 screen.
My current power supply is Thermatake TR2 RX 450w at 15 amps, which is fine for a 4 year old Geforce 210 card for dual monitor to a 32inch Vizio, and a Cintiq 21ux monitor. The GTX 750 ti seems to run fine on 1 monitor at a time with 15 amps, but does not dual monitor (I tried 4 monitor/tv combinations).
Bottom line, if you have an older power supply with enough watts, make sure your amps are at least 20 on the 12v. Or buy a newer power supply for about $50.
I put this in Cons because that little detail wasn't listed here online, but listed on the side of the box after delivery.
Other Thoughts: A 2010 cheap Geforce 210 can HD dual monitor at 14-15 amps, but the GTX 750 ti cannot. A newer card should at least MATCH an older card under the same requirements.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Pros: My previous computer had pre-installed Windows7, I decided to go with it again. Happy with the decision. Great OS.
Other Thoughts: Cautionary Note: To anyone building a new computer with Windows 7 with a SSD & with an extra mechanical data drive above 2TBs.
Unplug the extra data drive BEFORE you install Windows 7. If you don't, the Windows7 installation process auto-installs system files onto your 2nd drive without asking, making it a "system drive" and lowering the data limit to 2TBs. You may have to re-install Windows 7 again if you have both drives plugged in during installation, unless you want to limit a 3-4TB drive to 2TBs.
Pros: It's a dated card, but it still has plenty of value and worth the purchase.
A few Pros:
1) 3-way output, dual monitor.
2) Basic low-settings gaming and youtubing.
3) Less strain on older computer motherboards with integrated graphics .Computers from about 2009-2010 might benefit from this card if this is the first graphics card in that system.
Cons: No cons, just an older card, but still very relevant for today for casual computer use.READ FULL REVIEW
