Great card for the price.

If I didn't hat using more power than necessary whilst not actually gaming I'd want this card & I'd probably pay £120 for it.

Don't these cards have a 'zero core' feature to reduce power substantially?

Such a good card for the money.

These use hardly any power under little/no load. In fact if you have an older generation card you'll probably use less power upgrading to this.

Better in terms of power consumption, absolutely worse for gaming, depends what your priority is.

An example ( a lazy one) >

Completely wrong... You would be a fool to get that over this if performance was what you were after.

R9 270X is much faster than a 750Ti but does consume a lot more power. Depends on your priorities.

Edit: Also a great price. Our suppliers at work have this listed at £112 exVAT.

So overall, how does this compare with the GeForce 660 that was on sale recently for about the same price?

This is a quick comparison for you http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-270X-vs-GeForce-GTX-660 I think this is worth the extra.

Power consumption can be misleading. If you have a 60hz monitor you want it to run at 60fps. My R9 290 in some games will use less power then a R9 280 as its not having to work very hard to achieve 60fps. Sometimes having the cheaper more energy efficient card costs you more because of this. Not PC related but some what relevant was top gear doing a test of A M3 vs Prius where the M3 was getting better fuel economy from just having to keep up with the Prius.

If power is not a issue for you don't overlook a GTX 480 its getting on a bit but still a good card.

FPS/watt the 750ti is unbeatable. I have a low profile version in my media center. If I didn't have such a small power ceiling to play with and limited by the low profile case I'd still be buying AMD. As it is, the 750 is the first nvidia card I've bought since a temporary 5200.

No free games with this one? :( Hot4Price! :)
#18
Dang, the price on these things keep dropping. I got the 4Gb version for £150 at the start of the year. Might need to crossfire later.
#19
Great price for a mid range card, keep looking to upgrade my 3gb 7950 but nothing really worth it yet, bang for buck wise.

No free games with this one but for £11 more you can buy it from Overclockers and get two free games. Just depends on whether any two of these download games seem like they're worth £11 to you. I think I would rather just pay the £119 but it's another option.

On a sidenote: Just had a gander on flubit.com and was offered the item with delivery for £111.78
