Replace ATI 5850 with GTX750?

Recommended Posts

I have an i970 3.2GHz based system with an ATI 5850 video card.  This of course is an older system but FSX works well enough for me, I get about 14 to 18 FPS with the PMDG 737.

 

I was given a Nvidia GTX750 1GB video card for Christmas (not the Ti version).  Will this low end card provide any performance benefit over what I have already, or should I stick it on eBay :-)

The only benefit would be that nvidia gcard drivers are far more FSX friendly.  Performance wise it may be a wash, with the nvidia card slightly less capable but more energy efficient (if that happens be matter).

Thanks - I swapped the cards over. The 750 has similar frame rates but overall less stutter and a smoother flying experience. P3D is markedly better with a 50% improvement in frame rates.

 

Thanks for the advice.
