Hi, i want to know what games can i run on this graphic card and also will it work on this motherboard : ASRock H61M-DGS

Can also use adobe master collection cs6 on this graphic card
And how much better is it than intel hd graphics 4000

More about : msi radeon 7750 2gb ddr3

It will run on that motherboard, it has a pcie 3.0/2.0(depends on the cpu used, sb 2.0, ib 3.0)16x slot, even if it's at 2.0, pcie 3.0 is backwards compatible with previous pcie.
And you can use the card in adobe programs, the cards is much better than the intel hd 4000 in gaming or in compute.
Though, i'd get the 1GB DDR5, if it's possible or if it's cheaper, since it has more memory bandwidth.

Thanks for replying
The cpu is intel i7 3.5ghz quad core processor
and what do you mean by memory bandwidth and can you give me a link to that item please

your i7 will be wasted if you'll only run a 7750 on it. even if your budget is tight at least step up to a 7850/650ti or better card + a decent/good psu. also, about the comparison between the 7750 vs intel hd4000, their performance gap is quite staggering. it will beat it up to a bloody pulp in all games.

Don't confuse DDR5 with GDDR5. There is not yet any such thing as DDR5 and any references to it in graphics cards is a mistake. It's GDDR5.

its only human to make mistakes. don't let it bother you too much. i'm sure he means gddr5 and it didn't hurt anyone, did it? anyways, good day to you sir.

I'm very mistrustful, i meant GDDR5 VS GDDR3, there's no ddr5, not even ddr4, i know that...
Point is the GDDR5 is faster than GDDR3, as a direct comparison in that german site showed a significant loss in performance(gaming) with GDDR3.

And nokiddingboss is right, if it's mainly for gaming, the 7750 might not be suffice for you, since it's a low end card, if it's for casual gaming, it's more than enough, though, a tip, nvidia cards perform better in cs6 with cuda.

Only premiere and after effects use cuda, everything else is opengl/cl. Premiere can use opencl but currently only on mac. It really doesn't matter which one you get if you don't use premiere.

It's not just in premiere, after effects can also use cuda : http://blogs.adobe.com/aftereffects/2012/05/gpu-cuda-op...
GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer (CUDA on specific graphics cards)

http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/AfterEffects...
http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/PremiereCS5....

It will depend on what the programs the op will use, if it's mainly premiere, then a nvidia card might be better for him, for photoshop cs6, either amd or nvidia will do about the same, the 7750 will be more than suffice.
As for the gaming aspect, it's up to the op, to see if a 7750 is suffice for him, one thing that i recommend is getting the 7750 1GDDR5 if it's at the same price as the 7750 2GB GDDR3.

Actually, it really is GDDR5 versus DDR3 ;) 

GDDR3 is not used in modern graphics cards as far as I'm aware. It was discontinued with some of the low end Radeon 5000 cards being the latest to use it and replaced with DDR3 because DDR3 is cheaper and consumes less power for similar performance.

Regardless, you're correct about the performance difference. There is a huge performance difference between the DDR3 version and the GDDR5 version for the Radeon 7750 (the GDDR5 version is very roughly 50% faster than the DDR3 version, on average)

rmbr most games dont use hyperthreading...only productive apps like music programs and photoshop

Not only do games not know the difference between Hyper-Threading threads and physical cores (they're all seen as threads to the game, if anything at all), but most games do in fact benefit from it. Many games don't benefit from it on the quad-core i7s because most games only work well across up to four threads and the i7s already have that many without Hyper-Threading, but Hyper-Threading makes a significant difference for Intel's dual-core CPUs and many of the newer games are able to scale well across eight threads jsut fine and do benefit from it even on the quad-core i7s as a result. For example, BF3 MP, several other very multi-player games, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3, and Metro 2033, granted that last one is usually too graphics-bound to make a big difference. This is a general, ongoing trend as new DX11 games come out and there are already several games that can scale well across eight threads.

Also, there are still a few music applications and many Photoshop applications that do not benefit well from it, granted mostly the older versions, so your other examples are not idea either. Sorry, but what you said was all wrong and very misleading as a result.

There could be a typo, but that's what it says, there could be also different cards with GDDR3 and DDR3.

I'm pretty sure that they're both typos. I don't think that GDDR3 was ever made in high enough chip-density for consumer chips to make 2GB cards on 128 bit buses even if the chips were doubled up. I don't have proof either way, but it'd be the first that I've heard of it, especially since there aren't any GDDR3 Radeon HD 6000 cards at all (that, I can confirm).

Here it says it is : http://www.msi.com/product/vga/R7750-PMD2GD3.html#?div=...

It's confusing, some have DDR3 others GDDR3 in the vendors page, the op might have listed the DDR3 one, since he just put it in the DDR3.
Either way, the point is to get the GDDR5 card if possible, over whatever GDDR3 or DDR3 card.

Great entry level card with MSI AFTERBURNER. Card plays Call of Duty Modern Warfare at medium settings with no problems. This card was designed to do what it is a great budget all around video card.
