Probably a Fermi card. I was looking in the past, out of curiosity, about these GPUs on eBay and Chinese shops, and while they do say 750Ti or GTX 960 or whatever in the name and GPU fields, what those crooks can not seems to be able to change, is the BIOS version. That 70.something BIOS version, is pointing to a 400 or 500 series card. A GTX 460 or a GTX 550 Ti would be a guess. Googling 750Ti's GPUz screenshots show BIOS versions 82.something. If it was a 650 the BIOS version would have been 80.something.
Found this bios version that matches.

Wrong

DEMAND A REFUND
You can do that, but I always prefer to ask the person holding the money (paypal in this case) nicely, especially when it wasn't their fault.

If you were dealing with the guy himself, I'd yell at him and demand this or that yeah. But he's a scammer, he isn't going to give you ANYTHING.

It's up to paypal now. File that dispute.

this is a PRime example of why the Sadiest seller i do business with for hardware would be amazon. I know they arent shady, and that my point. Ebay WILL help refund, but the process is Pulling teeth. I used to do a LARGE amount of selling on Ebay, from 01 or so, and I have since gotten out. Ebay attracts the dredges of society, in form of scammers, shill bidders, etc.

So basicly, if you would reflash that card, back to it's original, the drivers should appear back in.

I think they are running with some sort of HEX editor to change it's model number, thats the only thing they CAN change on software level.

I suggest always buying from good retailers, pay a little more but get more in return then this sort of bullcrap. People always want the best for the cheapest, ofcourse you can get scammed at some point.

It looks to be one of those Vamery cards. They've been reported to Nvidia for about a couple of years now and I'm surprised Nvidia hasn't done anything about it yet.

You can't do much when they are made somewhere where suing the makers is nearly impossible (China)

If GPU-Z cant identify the card and wrongly reports specifications including the number of CUDA cores , there is an easy test - run a 3D benchmark and compare the score to the reference GTX 750 ti and other cards .

Perhaps , clean driver installation is needed . Old drivers might prevent the card from running correctly

Even if price is too good to be true that dose not mean it is a fake all the time. We should always look at the pics provided by the seller and compare to original pics provided by manufacturer website. If the pics match then check the item you got and is it similar to what shown in the pics and described in listing.

About the card you got, yes it is fake and china made. The seller got that crap from http://www.aliexpress.com and sold it on ebay.com. Get refund and do leave a negative feedback so that others can benefit from your review.

BIOS version.
It's already speculated that it is a GTX 450.

You can double-check with GPUCapsViewer.
GTX 750 TI was the first GPU to expose "CUDA compute capability 5.0"

Here is a screenshot incl. the data mentioned by previous speakers.

Sadly I agree with you.

I only sell there now, and some days it seems like I'm probably the only honest duck on there so it gives me the creeps everytime I do it even in sales. That's why most of my sales lately have been here, on TPU.
