It may work but without the condenser, there will be more ripple on whatever power rail it was, though not a whole lot more as it was a tiny one.
You could try just switching on the card on a motherboard without any disks attached and measure voltage between those two points and then add a ceramic or plastic condenser (low value) in that place.
Even better would measure a good card if anyone around you has one, so you'd know what value the component was.

Does your GTX750Ti use a 6 pin power connector?
If it does then the missing SMD Capacitor should make little difference, if your card relies solely on the PCI-e slot for power your card's performance may be affected.
Run GPU-z and post a screenshot of the sensors Tab while using that card.
