I use a GTX 750Ti and couldn't be happier. Cool, quiet, more than fast enough for anything XP is capable of playing, and no compatibility issues so far.
edit: the system this is in uses a Core2 Quad 2.67Ghz. I've played everything from RtCW to Crysis. No issues.
Would the 750Ti work with XP SP2/directX9? Currently have a GF 7950GT with a Duo Core 2 3ghz and it struggles in Crysis, maybe the 750Ti would help it out some I don't know.
I don't know if the relatively modern GF drivers will work under SP2 or not (I believe the earliest drivers that work with the 750Ti are in the 340's). You'd just have to try, or find someone who can try for you. But I agree with Bobolaf--comparing those two cards is like comparing night and day. I went from an 8800GTX to the 750Ti and in some cases it was like 2x the performance. So going from a 7950GT should yield even bigger gains.
The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.
