If you’re looking for a fairly decent discrete graphics card to use for your gaming needs that does not cost much then the Radeon HD 7750 makes the perfect choice. Although it’s not fast enough to handle the cutting edge games today at maximum resolution (you will have to turn the details down) it can still beat any integrated graphics that you may be using.

Those who own older desktops will benefit the most when upgrading with this card. It does not need any external power supply and only needs your 16 lane PCIe slot. If you are looking to run the latest games at the highest resolution then this isn’t the card for you. This is aimed at people who usually play social games over at Facebook or play games that their integrated cards can’t handle well.
You will be able to enjoy games such as Skyrim V and Crysis 2 which runs smoothly even at high settings. When you use AA and other techniques the frame rates will drop significantly from around 50 to an acceptable 30 fps level. Graphically demanding games such as Metro 2033 are unplayable at high resolutions and barely playable at lower resolutions.
One disappointing thing about this graphics card though is that it does not support XFire technology. Its attractive price range would have made it an ideal candidate for people looking to have an XFire setup in their computers.
Looking for a cheap way to upgrade you old PC? You should consider getting the Radeon HD 7750.
I don’t have an older desktop by any means and get similar performance you’re describing here out of my Ati Radeon HD 6570 2GB, even before over clocking safely to about 700mhz or so. This card only cost me about $48. So I find it weird what you’re saying here about that card.
The 7750 actually does have CrossFireX; there is no crossfire bridge as it’s all done through the motherboard.
