Building PC For 'rents - Will a GTX 750 Ti Do?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I recently moved out of my parents house but so they can spend more time with my son we've decided that we will be spending the night at their house more often. This has caused me much trouble mostly because the only desktop PC they have is P4 with a Geforce FX 5900 Ultra and that thing is dying. My mom's asked me if there's anything we could do to make it run better but even if I was able to find parts and put an SSD in there it still wouldn't suffice for my needs when I'm there. Hence, I am going to build her a computer for Mother's Day that I will also be able to use when we stay over!

Now, she really only needs this for some basic office work and web browsing so she does not need anything ridiculous. I, however, do some light gaming - Skyrim (lightly modded), CS:GO, D3 RoS, GW2. So I'm going to build something that will last her for awhile and also provide for my gaming needs.

Okay so the only thing I really need to know is will a nice, cheap GTX750 Ti run those games at 1080p? I'm currently running all those games as maxed settings on my GTX 570 and I was looking at the comparison on GPUguru and I was having trouble deciphering if the 750 will be able to run them at the same settings... Any thoughts? I'm trying not to spend top dollar on a GPU because new cards are right around the corner and I'm planning on upgrading my 570 at some point (just not yet).

I'd just build them an I3 4330 setup. HD 4600 should be plenty for them

I don't think the onboard graphics are going to be enough to run any of those games on ultra settings at 1080p...

Why do your parents need ultra settings?

If you read the whole post I will be using this PC when I'm staying there for gaming... CS:GO, Skyrim, D3 RoS... I don't really need ultra settings but I wouldn't mind being able to just run it under the same settings as I'm used to on my own PC.

HD 4600 can easily run CS:GO. Not sure about D3 or Skyrim tho

Well I have a 3570k that I was going to give them so do you think a HD4000 would suffice then? I suppose I could build it and try running them then see if I need to add a video card but I would prefer to just build it all at once.

you need a video card. try a gtx 660 or radeon r9 270 or r7 265

Well I was mostly concerned about being able to run D3 and after reading http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_750_Ti_Gaming/16.html I decided to just go ahead and get a 750 Ti so well see if it performs well... I don't really need everything maxed out and the only two games I'm really playing are CS:GO and D3 RoS so this should suffice for awhile.

If you really want something that can run things at decent settings without breaking the bank, get an i3 setup and go on ebay and find a 7850 or 7870. There are a lot for $120-$150.

EDIT: Oh looks like you got the 750 Ti. Never-mind tongue.gif
