Gaming PC Graphics Card on a Budget

After almost 8 years I have decided I needed a new graphics card for my gaming rig. I was rocking a GeForce 8800 GS (overclocked of course) which I purchased on a budget also, which was starting to show its age with more modern games and with the imminent release of GTA V for the PC I don’t think the 8800 would cut it.

So after careful consideration and shopping around I managed to stumble over a GeForce GTX 750 Ti in PC World for a smidge under £120 which I quickly snapped up and chucked in my PC. Now I am getting reasonably high frame rates on current games on max settings, like Bioshock Infinite, I run through the entire game (which is a really good game btw) in ultra settings with an average of 60fps.

Here is a graph from NVidia’s website showing FPS results for some games on this card.

Final Thought

For those of you wanting to get your fingers on a decent graphics card for some of the more demanding games on a budget, go grab yourself a GTX 750 Ti as they preform really well for the amount of cash you have to throw at it.
