As far as the AMD motherboards go it's iffy. Some people have reported issues with decreased hashrate compared to running them on the board , the cudaminer dev conjectured that it's because of added resistance of PCI-e risers to the Northbridge

Nvidia has a bad habit of trying to save power (throttle) even when a 100% non-3D load is on it.
ccRicers , it's worth it if you can get the GTX 750 Ti for cheaper than $170 if your power is expensive.
