Galaxy NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti 2GB OC 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card – Priced @ Rs. 10,900 – The Nvidia GT 750Ti matches R7-260X in most gaming titles or exceed performance in some games. They are both evenly priced, the only major difference is the power supply required to run a R7-260X is 500 watts minimum, while you can run a Nvidia 750 ti with a 400 watt SMPS. This can be a major factor for some of the buyers who don’t want to invest in a new power supply which may cost additional 2k-3k for running the AMD R7-260X.

Concluding Thoughts – You can choose any of the above graphics cards based on your budget. These are some of the brands which are offering graphics cards at slight discount compared to ASUS or EVGA if you want to spend a little more on build quality you can look for Asus. I have personally used MSI, Sapphire and Asus and there is hardly a performance difference in mid range cards. Cooling is more a necessity in the very high end gaming cards where choosing a brand over other can sometimes make a difference.
If you are adding a new card to your old PC rig for playing the new gaming titles like Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Rogue or Unity, Fifa 15, GTA 5, Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty Advance warfare must check the game requirements before buying the graphics card. Also do check the SMPS requirement before purchasing a graphics card and your also monitor resolution to determine how much VRAM you need in a graphics card.
