Paul, could you please point me to a non overclocked 1050ti? I think to replace mine too

Paul's advice is very good, in my opinion.

Some 750s have a 6 pin power connector to supply more power to the gpu. We don't know if your power supply has one of those connectors. Some GTX 750s don't have one and get all their electricity from the PCI-E slot. 1050s are the same way.

I might be willing to ship you a better cpu. I have few that fit your type of motherboard that are better than what you're using. You'd have to be willing to get some new thermal paste to install a different cpu. Tell me in what country you reside and I'll check shipping costs.

That's a very generous offer, I live in the UK so maybe it will be too expensive - thanks all the same, your efforts to help are really appreciated  :thankyou:

After all the talk of extra connections and overclocked 750s I decided it really was time I opened up the PC to look at the PSU. I think my PSU does have the extra 6 pin connector required but as I have not seen how the pins look on a graphics card I can't be sure. I have taken a photograph showing the PSU label and the 6 pin connector (below). I have also taken a photograph of my expansion slots.

If anyone can confirm that this 6 pin connector is indeed the correct configuration then I will be OK to continue to pursue the cards I was originally chasing. Thanks.

NO! this is not a GPU power connector!

Look here: http://graphicscardh...wer-connectors/

I would replace the PSU - just make a google search for the PSU...

Do your self a favor, avoid it like it has the Black plague of Death.
Basically there :crap:, 50% load they are fine, once you get to 75% load they just shut down. The specs are a complete Lie....

Look for one with an 80+ sticker of a reliable make ~ 450Watt

:thankyou:

Thanks for saving me! That website link is also very useful.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the 80+ sticker?

Edit:

OK - I found the 80+ thing - thought I would put up a link to a wiki article in case anyone else is following this thread in a similar situation to me...

@EzaBlade

I had not realised so many of 750ti cards have extra power connectors. But you can still find some that don't.
Even more confusing is that some overclocked versions do not need extra power.
When you see a used card check the model number at the manufacturers web site for specifications. Or do what you are doing and ask ;)

These cards are suitable

Palit

eVGA

Good luck


Paul

If you want to see what improvement you get with a graphics card but without spending too much cash, buy a used GTX750ti for around £30-£40 and add to you PCIe slot. You will get a massive improvement over your onboard graphics.

With your PC spec I would not fit anything more expensive than a GTX1050ti.

Paul

I watched the auctions for weeks. All the 750Ti cards were going for £65 - £75. I eventually got one for £57.

It is always the way when you want something.
Now you have it I expect you will see cheaper ones.

mine sold on flea bay for £40 a few months back.


Anyway, is it installed and working?

You should have no issues running GPL with the wick turned up with a 750ti.

My i5-3570 and GTX660 run GPL a max settings from the back of the SPA '67 grid with max FPS.
