GTX 750 TI linux users
I am planing to get GTX 750 TI to use with Ubuntu 14.04.

Currently using ATI HD 5670, i can play Civ 5 with out much problem (have some distorted auto for advice voice). Team Fortress, i can play, but have some problem, i think input lag or something, don't get same feeling as TF2 on Windows.

Will GTX 750 TI work properly with these games ?

It's possible your issues are caused by using ATI and merely switching to NVidia could help
because it has a bit better support for Linux at the moment.
I have an old GTX 295 and I can run Civ5 and TF2 pretty smoothly with great input responsiveness on Linux

(if it's just input lag that's your problem have you tried turning off vsync and turning on "raw mouse input" in the settings?)

GTX 750 ti should be fine while it might be considred lowish end compared to the gtx 760 and 770 it will play modern games at 1920x1080 without much detail loss if any.. For the games in question no issue at all.

Disable high dynamic range and anti-aliasing, you'll get more of a direct feeling.
If this weird input lag continues, set shaders on low.

I've got a regular GTX 750 card. It works very good. You just need to install Nvidia drivers greater/equal to version 334, for example from xorg edgers.
If I was you though, I'd stick with the the GTX 750 (the best performance/watt on the market) or buy a GTX 760 (much better performance, but but very power demanding). I really don't like the GTX 750 Ti...

750 ti just has the one pci header slot for the fan other then that is the same card (some of those come factory oc'd tho kinda moot theres always gpu boost.. but if your going to go beyond the 750 skip the 760 and just pay the extra 30 bucks and go with teh 770

This should fix your sound problem.

edit the file /etc/pulse/daemon.conf and set
default-fragment-size-msec = 5

@spacelike I enabled raw mouse input and increased mouse accleration a bit and it helped. But some times lagging, only played 2 games, i try again later.

@Bucky21659 I will try changing dynamic range, shaders and anti-aliasing today.

@Xantas Thanks for the suggestion. But GTX 750 TI have more cores ? price differnce is below $20. I considered GTX 760, but if i go with that i need to change my power suppply. I am using CoolerMaster RS-650-PCAR-E3 (650 Watts), some says it is low quality PSU, My CPU is Intel Core i7 950. Since my current GPU is smaller one, i prefer a 2 fan one, that look like a bigger GPU :D

If any chance you have java installed on your PC, can you see if you can play MMORPG www.runescape.com/game.ws ? This is one of the game i play, it work on MY GPU, but i have a strange screen problem.

@jamielF I don't think i can get GTX 770 atm. Max i can get is 760, but again, that need an extra PSU. Also my in country (india), price differnce between GTX 760 and GTX 770 is like $150.

@[EcG] MerReady Thank you very much. I will try this today. I have some static/crackling norice issue with HDMI audio of HD 5670, that got fixed by editing pulseaudio config.

I can say right away I don't have any problem with Humble Bundle site (I had a look at your picture). Actually I've never had such a problem on any other site either. So I guess it's just related to your PC. Tonight at home I'll check runescape too.

About GTX 760: NVidia states the minimum PSU is 500W (2 x 6-pin power connectors)
http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-760/specifications
But if you're concerned about your PSU then go for 750 Ti.

Just my view on the power supply thing. I think you should be fine. I got an i7 with 760 and im running it of a corsair 650W. Before i got that power supply i was running it on an old corsair 550W (I wanted a modular power supply). I dunno what the cooler masters like, wether its single rail or not but i recon it could do it. The main thing to look for is its current output on the 12V rail.

Also when i got my GTX 670 i was coming from an AMD 5770 and although it wasn't terrible, I got a massive performance boost on linux. AMD issn't as bad for linux than allot of people make out, from my experience at least, but the move to nvidia is a big improvement.

CS:S is running flawlessly for me, feels even more direct than windows with everything but anti-aliasing on high.
However I still get some input lag on some custom maps with lots of translucent materials, I usually set shaders to low and if that doesn't cut it, HDR.

Running on an AMD Radeon HD 6670 with latest beta fglrx drivers from AMD's site.

Thanks all, i changed every setting in TF2 to low and changed resolution a bit and is playable now. I have to try Civ 5 sound fix.

@Xantas The display problem happens when i play a game. When playing runescape, when i close the game, problem fixes instantly. It is not site related, it can happen to any site. After playing TF2, i had the problem for few minutes. I have a screenshot of steamcommunity.com

I think this may be due to PC load or graphics problem. My load after playing the game is

me@mypc:~$ uptime
00:28:41 up 6:32, 2 users, load average: 1.08, 1.44, 1.72
me@mypc:~$ free -m

@LightBulb [Linux] I will look into GTX 750 TI or GTX 760. If my PSU can't handle GTX 760, problem will be when i play game/power usage is height ? For normal usage i don't face any problem ?

@Bucky21659 i set every setting to low, now game is playable.

@Doc Holliday Will go for NVIDIA only this time :)

I want to play TF2 again. Can the GTX 750 TI handle max settings in windowed mode?

it can handle max settings np... i have ran that card up to 3840x1080 and still managed to get playable frame rates.... in some games... :P

I can almost max out Sniper Elite 3 in Win7, so I wouldn't worry about that.

In Shadow Warrior Linux, it shows up as an 8800 GTX, though. :/
