Best value low profile graphics card for under

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've just purchased a Micro ATX computer and am looking to put a different graphics card into it. I'm mostly going to be using this for Netflix streaming etc as it's going to sit under the TV, but I'd also like to have the option of playing games in the living room too.

Can anyone please recommend the best value low profile card that will fit? I've been looking at the 750 (

that 750ti by KFA is really the best you're gonna get (I have the Galaxy US version in my low profile tower and it's rather good)

 

as far as others/amd there's not too much else available. i had a thread here a couple months ago https://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/1207391-looking-for-worthwile-low-profile-graphics-card/ check it out it could help

for the quality & performance of the card I'd say yes. heck save up for another month or 2 if you really feel you can't quite afford it yet. better wait a little longer and spend more then be disappointed with a lower model IMHO

Thank you :)

 

Possibly a silly question, but since this is smaller, half the price, and uses less power, is the 740 worth considering too? http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-zotac-gt-740-28nm-1782mhz-gddr3-gpu-993mhz-384-cores-d-sub-dvi-d-hdmi-low-profile-compatible

 

Thanks again

depends on what you're going to do with it. the 740 listed is a lot less powerful than 750ti so if you're doing anything like gaming you'd definitely notice the difference between the two
