    actually the performance is that GREAT, but the vram capacity is another matter just like all those other dual cards you mentioned.

    titanZ is badass.

    At $600 plus tax you think its worth it for the Mars card? Gonna have to think long and hard about that one.I did hold the card in my hands and its pure sex, black and red and oh so nice! That might of came out wrong lol.

    Ill try a 590 or 6990 1st before i throw down six large for a card.One thinG i found interesting I was able to beat a Radeon 6990 with my 6970 crossfire set-up by 30-40 fps....mine were overclocked and the guy was running stock, sound about right?

    Try it in a friends system, looks like your system is too old, causing compatibility issues.

    Ah, quick google search alread found the problem. Your mobo to put it plainly is the issue.

    Many others with 750ti are having issues(including other PCI 3.0 cards so i doubt a new card will fix it)

    Download Live Update 6 from MSI support page of your mobo, and make sure youre running latest bios update and then see if you can disable PCIe 3.0(if theres an option).

    If that doesnt work, your only options are
    1. swap mobo out for something good, like an asus.
    2. try another GPU, wont be guranteed itll work either considering the hundreds of reviews of issues on newegg. Out of 500~ half are having issues, that says something is amiss...

    Top end MSI is good, lower end MSI mobos, not so much.

    Can you link me to a guide for this? I have a PNY 750 ti and used kepler bios tweaker to turn up the mW on the powertable to 60000 but saw very little improvement. The MSI afterburner I'm using only allows +25mV so not even sure how to try "1.25V" like you mentioned.

    My boost is currently 1380mhz so I guess it is better than the ref review you mentioned, but I feel like if I could turn up the voltage more than 25mV then I could do more. Also I don't get anywhere near 7ghz on the memory. I think +240mhz is the most I've been able to do without freezes and artifacting, and that was up from 3ghz stock I believe. (I guess you are counting 3ghz + 3ghz, 1 for each GB of VRAM?)

    750Ti blows that card out of the water. The 750Ti will be one of the last cards ever made that almost maxes the capability of the PCI-E power output which is 75W. Overachiever card get the 2nd highest OC version PNY XLR8
