    There is no word from Nvidia about the GTX 750 - 750 Ti. The last i heard about the GTX 750, it supposed to launch in October...

    Nvidia seems busy only in the high-end GPU's segment... is more likely we won't see any new mid-range GPU's from Nvidia until next year.

    Since there is no GTX 750 Ti yet, a good option could be the Radeon R9 270.

    Do you know what you are wanting to spend on a card and what you plan to play (games and settings)? A 270's not a bad choice, since everything from the 270-290X comes with a free copy of Battlefield 4.

    270 seems to be a slightly underclocked 270X and gives fairly good performance that's pretty much the best bang for buck you can get at the moment. Interesting to see how this mantle tech develops further. I'd like to see some better AMD driver support before I jumped to them, though.

    Maybe so, but the 270X is, what, $20 more? I think that's a small-enough bump in price to get a bit more performance. Of course, that's relative to the user. Neither card is going to be a long-term gaming solution (since they're just rebranded 7000 series cards), but that 270X will maybe give you a bit more longevity. If it's all about power consumption and cost, and it's not a real gaming matter, then the 270's probably better.

    I don't know that this is what reality will be. As it stands, The GTX 650 Ti Boost is a $150 card. I'm not sure I see Nvidia basically doing a rebranding to get the 750 out there. I'd probably expect the 750 to be the GTX 660 (a $180 card) and the 750 Ti to be a new, $200 card. That would put them in-line with the R9 270 and R9 270X, respectively, while also seating them in the group just below the GTX 760. The only concern there is that as of now, the 270X is only $20 more than the GTX 660 and beats it by 20% or so, according to Anandtech. The 270 is the same price as the 660 and beats it by about 10%. Both of those cards come with Battlefield 4 for free as well.

    The only way a GTX 750/750 Ti launch makes much sense is if:

    1. The GTX 750 becomes a $140 card and competes with the R7 260X and the GTX 750 Ti becomes a $180 and competes with the R9 270, leaving the R9 270X just $20 above the Ti and a 10% jump above it.
    2. The GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti are 10 and 20% better than the GTX 660, respectively (even more for the GTX 650 Ti Boost comparison) and priced right with the R9 270 and R9 270X.

    AMD's REALLY put Nvidia in a bind, because they currently offer cards that are comparable in power for much less. That's the main reason I wouldn't go Nvidia right now, ignoring brand loyalty. This isn't a market like consoles, where exclusives and services sell stuff. This is all about power and price, and AMD is beating Nvidia on both fronts at the moment.
