Question about gtx 750 Ti 4Gb

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have decided to upgrade to a gtx 750 Ti. I have heard that the 4Gb version doesn't actually have 4Gb of ram, but rather 2Gb, and can borrow up to an additional 2Gb of system ram.

 

Does anybody know if this is true?

It is 4GBs but the card really is not fast enough to even use 2GBs. If you can you may want to try to get a 960 as it will perform MUCH better.

The card indeed has 4gb of gddr5 on it , but it really isn't fast enough to effectively use all of it.

For the price , you are better off buying a 950.

So I bought a prebuilt PC from a store. It currently has an r7 240 in it. Would 960 be compatible? I was looking into the 750 ti because it was know for being a good 'plug and play' card.

It comes with 4GB onboard VRAM

What is the power supply? The 960 is generally a horrible value card - it's far too weak and crippled for the price tag of 200$

It depends on the power supply. Also I  found this on r/hardwareswap if your interested. https://www.reddit.com/r/hardwareswap/comments/4duy60/usatn_h_powercolor_turboduo_r9_280_3gb_gigabyte/
