Tell me what to do oh master
That'll really come down to personal choice. How you spend your money and what kind of Daggerfall experience you want is up to you ;) I run on almost all vanilla settings and I'm happy with it.
Come give your feedback on the ideas in my general thread, and share your DFU characters in the character thread.

For GTX cards, first number is the generation. A 700 series will have more features than a 600 series, but not necessarily more speed. The last two digits are the step level of the GPU & memory. In this case, your 750 is one gen higher, but one step lower than a 660. You have more features, but roughly the same speed at the end of the day. Basically x50s are the budget end and x80s are the upper end. I always try to use x60s or x70s, they give a solid amount of power and don't break the bank.

Just putting in a new card doesn't always solve things either. It's possible to be CPU-bound or your bus speed can't cope with the newer card's throughput. I'm not a hardware specialist by a long shot so it's hard for me to make a call on that.

For deferred rendering, multiple buffers need to be rendered at once (colour, depth, normals, etc.). This means the raw speed at which your card can pump out pixels counts for a lot. And many small overlapping chunks of light data (like in interiors) adds extra overdraw to the buffers (compared to outdoors during the day).

Before spending any money, just try the free stuff like limiting mods, lowering resolution slightly, or lowering quality level. The reason lowering resolution helps so much is because less bandwidth is needed. For example, a 1080p scene needs to push over 2x the pixels of a 720p scene. With classic assets (no mods) 720p and 1080p look almost identical.

If you're getting along OK for now, I wouldn't recommend buying a new card. I'll add some new options to scale back interiors soon, and mod creators might optimise things further in the future.

Please just keep in mind I only focus on the base game. Mods are created by community members and YMMV depending on a lot of factors. :)

Yeah the native in mine is 1080p, so Like I need to upgrade anyways, it just fits small form factor cards, and they look small like the one I have in there...I just don't know anything about ZOTAC.
It wasn't just for this game...seriously dude...i'm not a frickin weirdo lol.
I just thought you knew something about that stuff..I have been wanting a 1050 for a while..
Maybe the Mini, I'm just used to evga, sorry to bug you

You should see a big jump in performance from a 750ti to a 1050ti. :)

The only things that might hold back getting full speed of that card is your CPU and motherboard bus. But it should be a big improvement if you go that way.

Rough day for me though so was kinda tired, My Youtube is blowing up so bad I cant even stream (seriously dude) :cry:

The stupid GeForce exp messed up a new driver install,
So like all the stuff I was working on.."poof" gone (grrr), had to reinstal manually..just a pain in the butt day.

Think Im gonna read some books and lvl up my new dude I made ALONE for a while ( yes!), hopefully I can fricken stream some stuff by then (its pissin me off)
