If the GTX750 was the only card which was CUDA capable, sure, but CUDA runs on pretty much every nVidia card from 8XXX onward....



Sure, maxwell is one of the most interesting things to come out of nvidia for years now, but its still way to new even for a midend 'gamers' card. A GTX750 for a streambox? LOL, yeah, if it floats your boat, but thats way overkill. Not like there is any real use for VDPAU/pure video feature set 'E' for 99.9%+ of users now.
More CUDA cores the 750 and 760 are fine cards if you need CUDA therefore not overkill if you are not a gamer.

How useful CUDA is to the average user now? Not very, if at all. But yeah, you do have a point....but even given the point, the GTX 750 is just too new.

I wouldnt be getting one for use with windows now, let alone linux.

The GTX 760 is much better supported, and has, what 60%+ more CUDA cores? If you're doing CUDA its a much better way to go. Yeh, it does eat alot more power, but at least its stable, well tested and has good driver support. For now. I'm sure that the 'maxwell' GTX 760 version (I'd guess GTX 860, but who knows) will be a nicer card than the GTX 760. Given time.

But I'd rather let the windows gamers work out the kinks in 'maxwell' and get one in a 18 months or longer over buying one now.......

$ egrep -i "mode" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Should list the modes as available in your card and supported in the EDID info of the monitor. Hopefully your desired resolution is one of them. If it's not you could try running at half resolution and get some clarity on LCD tech.

Maxwell works fine in Linux though I don't know how it is for gamers. The point of using a 750 for CUDA is it doesn't need external power so you can as many as you have slots for. The more CUDA you have the better if using CUDA programs

If you need mutlipule cards to get as many CUDa cores as possible...well, 'need' is the wrong word.....but anyway, its a bit silly really.

How many PCIe slots does the average baord have? Not thatmany, and then you start hitting PCIe lane limits as well with multipule cards.

I can see one GTX 750, _if_ you want to risk early adoption, but for more than 1, might as well pony up, deal with slightly higher power consumption and use less slots...cause most decent power supplies have a PCIe power adapter anyway, and if it doesnt, someone is trying to run a donkey as a racehorse.
