Is 7750 better than 9800gt

Initially, the plan was to get 6850 and a new PSU, but it turned out I want Diablo3 as well and im on a budget. I currently have the 9800gt 1gb green edition, but it is getting old and not enough for my gaming needs. So my question is, does the Radeon HD 7750 surpass the 9800gt, and how far, am i going to notice a big difference. Can it run Crysis Wars at max settings and Battlefield 3 at reasonable FPS.
My other specs are pretty standard:
Asus h61 mobo
core i3 2100
2x4gb corsair ram
1 sata HDD
400w 80+ FSP PSU
All answers are important to me.
Thank you~

More about 7750 9800gt
  1. although it is a better card I do not see it as to much better, not really a worthwhile upgrade but if all you are worried about is diablo 3 88GT will play it just fine
  2. getting the 7750 is better idea, cuase of new technology, run faster,quieter and cooler also comsume less power than 9800gt BTW,7750 is better than 9800gt, you can play all the latest games some of them are in high or some in medium with acceptable frame rates.
  3. Thank you for your answers. I think it will be better than you think because this is a green edition card, and the clock speeds are 550mhz, insted the 650mhz on the reference 9800gt (correct me if i'm wrong).
  4. all in all a 7750 is far weaker than a 6850 and isn't really a worthwhile upgrade over your current card
  5. Yes but i don't find the eye candy obligatory + i could save a lot of money from not buying a new PSU. And whaddya know, it might overclock as well. I hope I don't sound like a cheap bastard though

    Agreed - it's less of an upgrade and more of a modern replacement. For a noticeable upgrade, you'll want at least an HD 6850 or HD 7770. Those are both about $140 right now.
  7. Hmm guess you are right. I have 2 more questions: How does 7750 compare to 550ti
    and will 27amps on the +12v rail be enough for 7770? (me being cheap again :D )
  8. P.S.
    does it make difference if the psu says +12v1 -14amps and +12v2 says 13 amps
  9. 550ti is faster by a noticeable amount than a 7750. A 6850 is way more powerful than a 550ti
  10. One last question: Is there any chance to stay with my current PSU and run a 7770 on my system. Then later in the near future I will get a new one, but I don't have the money to buy one now.
  11. if your psu has 1x6pin pcie connector then fine no worries but no overclock with that psu.

    hd 7750 vs gt 9800

    the hd 7750 is better then that card in many ways cooling,consumption,noise,etc
  12. most of the 7750 cards don't even require a PCI-E pin except for a few. the 7750 also supports DirectX 11.1 where as the GTX 9800 doesn't even support directx 11...however the upgrade will be very marginal, you should really just wait and save up and buy the 6850 when you have the dough.
  13. 7770 and 6850 will both run well on that PSU if you have the pcie connector, I hate adapters as the only external power source.
  14. Well... the psu does not have the pci-e power cable. Will it be alright if i use the 2molex to pci-e adapter that comes with the package?
  15. In simple words 7750 is better than 9800 gt. BUT for a noticeable difference go for 6850 or 7770.
  16. The adapter should be fine.
  17. The 7750 isn't too much of an upgrade, It is an upgrade, better fps, but not that much from the 9800gt. Even the green 9800gt can perform pretty well, put a fan on it, and clock it higher than the non green 9800gt.

    But if you look into it, get the 6770, its faster and is at the same price of a 7750. http://www.hwcompare.com/11774/radeon-hd-6770-1gb-vs-radeon-hd-7750/

    Also if you can find a 5770 cheaper then a 100$, its still faster than the 7750. It uses more power, but I can see why your PSU wouldn't run it.

    Edit: here is a hd6770 119.99 http://www.frys.com/product/6894556?source=googleps

    You can look else where, but I trust that site, I vary careful of what website I order from.

    Edit again: 114.99 at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/XFX-Radeon-HD6770-PCI-Express-HD677XZNLC/dp/B004Z5GRVW

    While I agree the 5770 is better and I did thumbs up your comment, I have them both and I am frankly not amazed with the difference between them.

    Yeah, I hear ya, the 5770, 6770, and 7770 are vary close, even the 7750 if vary close, but the 7750 wont be able to handle overclocks for more demanding games down the road. But either way, you can still get a 6770 for the same price of a 7750, might get lucky and find a 5770 for that or cheaper as well. But it does use a bit more power than the 7750.
  20. I clocked the 9800 to 640mhz core clock and 1000mhz memory. I was expecting big differences in performance but only got like 15% increase in fps. I still can't run Crysis wars on max with more than 25 fps. So my final decision will be the 7770. Although I doubt my PSU will be insufficient, if it turns out to be, will it cause damage to the other components. Or could I somehow decrease consumption until I can afford a new one.
  21. What brand is the PSU ?
  22. FSP group
  23. wait, it is Fortron, sorry
  24. I just remembered an important factor to take into cosideration. It needs to be portable (no auxillary power) , so i can plug it into my grandparent's PC so I can do some gaming while on long vacations. I wonder if Nvidia can come up with a sub 75w TDP graphic solution beter than 7750. Should I wait to see what would it be?
  25. nvidia will not likely put out a card that competes with the 7750
  26. Nvidia simply does not care about budget gaming. Not nearly as much as AMD. That's why AMD has the best performance/buck ratio. If only we could say that about their CPUs... Even Nvidia's mid-range cards are power-hungry bloodsuckers with 2 six pin PCI connectors. If you're looking for a portable little gaming device then the 7750 is the way to go.
