    My Asus GTX 750ti does require external power, as did the 650ti before it. I would double check before you buy it since your power supply may not like the extra power requirements
    The need for external power on your card seems to be the exception. NVidia's basic specs call for a pci-e connection and a 300 watt ps. A quick look at the reviews on Amazon indicate the same for most models. Having said that manufactures can make changes. One may feel that heat sinks and cooling tubes are good enough, while another may feel it needs one or even two fans. This could change the power needs. For RandomMan's stated requirements, I think that the combination for stable drivers, cost, low power requirements and performance still make the 750ti a really good choice. As always he should make sure he checks out any card to make sure it's the best fit for his system.

    Modern PCIex. can give up to 75W of power, anything over that has to have added power line.

    Be that as it may, most of the 750's do not. Nvidia specs this card at 60 watts.
    "Yet, Nvidia, perhaps trying to prove a point, shipped out its reference GeForce GTX 750 Ti on a less than six-inch board. With no auxiliary power connector. "Toms Hardware.
    Granted the Asus GTX does, but most do not.

    When I recommended the GTX 750ti, I said that mine did not require external power, some do although they still only use 60 watts, I looked very carefully at the specs for each makers versions before buying one. I also have an HIS Radeon 5670 HD, which, in it's day was the most powerful card without extra power connections.

    To compare relative powers, (not wattage ), go to PassMark Software - PC Benchmark and Test Software . It's good as most onboard graphics can be compared to add on cards. The site is well worth bookmarking.

    With a bit of delving, using Passmark 06, the HD3000=1293, and the GTX750ti= 5378
