The GTX 750 Ti is the entry level of the nVidia's Maxwell chipset graphics cards. Given your applications, I'd look at the GTX 950 (which is replacing the GTX 750 Ti) and, according to several reviews, comes close in performance to the low end GTX 960s. However, none of the GTX 950's come with 4GB memory, yet. I don't know if that will be a limitation or not.@Stork, Thanks for keeping this thread always up to date.
I am looking to pull the trigger to purchase these items today to build my first Hackintosh. Looking for you opinion since I will be running 6 monitors (1920x1080)
System: El Capitan
Monitors: 6 Samsung 24" 1920x1080
Motherboard: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z97X-Gaming 3
- One DVI (Will need a DVI to HDMI for the Monitor)
- One HDMI
-- Supports 2 Screens
Video Card: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 750 Ti
- 4GB Version
- Two DVI Connections (Will need a DVI to HDMI for the Monitors)
- Two HDMI Connections
-- Supports 4 Screens.
Do you think the MB and the Video cards will be able to support the 6 monitors?
I am hoping the HDMIs are plug and play, that no issue of having the screens not turning on if waking up form sleep. and also the same for the DVI to HDMI.
This build is mainly for Development, Photoshop, Illustrator, Chrome (usually 50 tabs, 3 windows - I forget to close them).
Your input is very appreciated.
I have just purchased a Gigabyte GTX 950, and it, too, will support up to four monitors.
However, it is only a 2GB card. Additionally, you'll need three DP to HDMI adapters.
You can also look at 4GB GTX 960 cards. Here is are two Gigabyte GTX 960 4GB:
The latter card cost $220 USD and has a $30 MIR which drives the price down to $180 USD which is close to your GTX 750 Ti's price, but lots more performance.
Whatever you end up with, good luck! Enjoy your hackintosh.
