Message 24687 - Posted: 5 Jan 2018, 12:34:46 UTC - in response to Message 24686.

Hey, Mikey, what is your opinion of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti? I bought one to upgrade a MacPro 4,1 that didn't have a spare internal power cable (an AMD/ATI 5870 was using both). The 750Ti generated >600K in Collatz credits in the first 24 hours, which compares quite favorably to the ~750K/day generated by an NVIDIA GTX 680 and the ~800K/day generated by an NVIDIA GTX 770. So, from my perspective the GTX 750Ti is an energy efficient way to boost crunching capacity.

On a related question, I have two GTX 960s that require only a single internal power cable. I can't seem to find any more of these units, as my previous vendor (MacVidCards.com) no longer stocks them. Any suggestions? IMHO, a combo 960/750 MacPro 4,1 would be a great solution for a stable workstation/BOINC cruncher.

I am still lusting after a Cubix Xpander Desktop Elite Gen 3 with 4 Titan Xps. But I can't justify spending that much on crunching. :-)


I have two kinds of 750Ti's, one with 2gb and other with only 1gb on the card, the 2gb card IS good here while the 1gb card is better at other projects with less intensive crunching. I too get around 600k per day in credits from the 2gb card.

I don't use a Mac desktop at all, I do use a Mac laptop I picked for my travels and it does crunching cpu units, but not here.

I also don't worry about the power my pc's use, right now anyway, so just buy the best gpu my pc can use and I can afford. As for your 960's have you looked on Ebay yet? I got almost all of my 750Ti's from there, I have 7 of them.

A few Titan gpu's WOULD be really nice but coming up with about $3000 each isn't an easy thing to do, especially when they aren't making any money. :-)

I am winning!!

and eating almost 1000 watt of electric power each)

750Ti is a very good card for crunching...was...3-4 years ago....
please, look here: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-750-Ti-vs-GeForce-GTX-1050
1050 costs the same money, but has better performance and the same power consumption because of Pascal GPU Architecture(750ti has Maxwell GPU Architecture)

All right, All right. That's enough shop talk.

I'm winning!

Thanks for the advice, Mikey and El_Teniente. I'll contemplate the advice and stop with the shop talk, Kathryn!

AND, I am now winning, despite not having enough cash for a Mac-compatible GTX 1050, let alone a Titan! :-)

When I was running Bitcoin Utopia and asic miners I was running 1200watt power supplies. two of them, to keep my Avalon 6's running 24/7. That's how my Boinc credits got as high as they are.

Kathryn you have a PM.

Give it up Mikey. I'm the winner here. I have on my official winning cape (aka the blanket around me for warmth).
