Setup and Errata
I am comparing this card to the MSI GTX 760, Asus R9 280X, and the MSI R9 270X. All of these cards are more expensive than the GTX 750 Ti, but not by a whole lot. This area is very tightly constrained when it comes to money. An extra $20 can provide a very significant boost in overall performance at higher resolutions.
A decent look at the heatsink. Two heatpipes are more than adequate for this particular GPU.
The Asus STRIX GTX 750 Ti worked exactly as expected. It provided no issues and I experienced no complications with installation and the running of benchmarks. Testing was also comprised of some regular multi-hour gaming scenarios.
The NVIDIA 347.09 WHQL drivers were used for the NVIDIA cards, while the AMD cards had been previously tested with the Catalyst 14.7 RC1 drivers.
The back is pretty bare, but not uncommon for a budget graphics card. It is not nearly heavy enough to require a backplate.
