GeForce GT 740 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GT 740 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.


Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GK107-425-A2 which has 2 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 993MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 64W, it requires at least a 400W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
GeForce GT 740 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 640.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is not too far from the older GeForce GTX 650.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Core i3) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 740.

Sorry for Late answer , but i think the price of GDDR5 is 80 - 90 $ and the GDDR3 is almost the same but its not worth to get the GDDR3 , so go with Gddr5
