More about which card work comp
  1. Defiantly this one
    http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5598652&CatId=7387

    it cost less and has more VRAM than the other card
    Also MSI is a good brand, so is sapphire so you cant really go wrong
  2. Best answer
    Of the 2 cards, I would say the Sapphire one as the other one(MSI) has GDDR3 vs GDDR5(Faster!) Unless it is a typo, that is why it cost less.

    True!
  7. no I agree it puts you near a 7770 but neither of those cards are 2 gigabyte cards.
  8. How often does a mid end card have the power to use 2gigabytes of memory? Skyrim high rez pack would be about it.
    I remember seeing geforce FX 5200's with 256megabytes of ram. Not that they could ever use it.
  9. bf3 uses around 1.5 for me. there are games that are ram intensive.
  10. gta4 as well.
  11. At those settings how would a 7750 cope?

    I mean a 7770 will fall well under 30 fps at full settings at 1920 x 1080 so you will need to turn down the settings quite a bit and then video ram does not help.

    If you start to push over that screen resolution then yes.

    System ram is another beast all together.

    Since i do not know of any reviews of the 2gb gddr5 7750's here is something with a bit more power.

    I am not trying be an ass or anything, I just do not think mid level cards with lots of vram are at all worth the cost.

  13. Truly depends. I mean if you don't have the funds to buy your 7850.7950 or 7970 with more then 1 gig of ram surely when you run into a game with more then 1 gig of ram usage you will hit a brick wall. However at the same time you won't be getting higher then high in some areas and medium in most with a 7750.
