Yeah it's a fantastic little card. Really want one for a HTPC build, but unfortunately so far all the Board Partners are putting 6 pin power connectors on them, which defeats the purpose of this card.

Any news Paul of a reference without the 6 pin?

I have two EVGA 750TIs with 2GB (the SC & regular) sitting in front of me, and neither have a power plug. They pull all power from the slot.
Interesting that you say all board partners are putting 6 pin power connectors as I or my clients have already purchased 7 750ti cards of different brands and NONE have had a power connector.
In fact, in the reviews that was stated as the norm from nvidia for the 750 - no power except from the slot. Now all the boards seem to have the solder point for a 6pin but none have had one.
The only downside I have with the EVGA 2GB boards is that they (EVGA) state on the box that they require "A 400 Watt or greater power supply with a minimum of 20 amps on the +12 volt rail". However they do state that it is based on a system with a Core i7 3.2 GHz processor. And I know that Maximum PC, and other review sites tested the 750TI (not the EVGA 2GB that I know of) in very low end off-the-shelf systems and didn't have any issues with even 250W power supplies. However, who knows about the EVGA 2GB versions.

I stand corrected, the online retailers here is in Auz have just updated their sites. Previously they were advertising that they required a 6 pin connector. Good good....I'm, in.

Thanks for the clarification. Wanting to replace a GT430 I have.

What I find amazing is the fact that nVidia has put out a powerful video card that allows most normal users with one monitor to run pretty much all games out at decent levels and not have to replace their power supply even in cheap desktop systems and do it for $150. Dual-monitor support, etc. all for $150. That is amazing.

So wait...do these cards (and their predecessors) allow for dual monitor support, or just one? Sorry to sound dumb, but something sounds too good to be true. If I wanted to just go ahead and get two of them, could I run both from a 750 watt power supply?

They do not support SLI.

The EVGA models do have a display port, HDMI port, and a DVI-I port. And officially support up to 3 monitors from the box.

It would be awesome if they did.

Didn't someone make a AMD or Nvidia card that was two lower end GPUs together, on a single card and find it performed REALLY well?

And is multi monitor support even something to consider anymore, or is this multi-monitor gaming? I see lots of low end card that will power a few 1080P monitors for QuickBooks and Office use.
