    Will this graphics card increase gaming FPS?

    I want to upgrade my graphics card, I am wondering if this graphics card will increase my FPS. (Mainly for minecraft, I want to run shaders with about 30-40 FPS, Shaders like sonic ether and rudo plays)

    1st choice graphics I want to upgrade to: EVGA 02G-P3-2738-KR GeForce GT 730 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card -

    My PC specs now are:

    OS - Windows 8.1
    RAM - 4.0 GB
    Processor - Intel pentium dual core 3.0 GHz.
    Graphics I have currently - Intel HD
    manufacturer - Lenovo

    In normal minecraft I get 25-35 fps on normal settings, with shaders I get 3-5 fps. Will the graphics card linked above improve preformance to the 30-40 fps range while in shaders? If not will this graphics card get me there?

    More expensive, but willing to buy if the other graphics won't work: EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 02G-P4-3751-KR G-SYNC Support 2GB Video Card -

    You should get the 750Ti, the 730 just wouldn't be worth it. What is your power supply? Have a read through this guide for choosing a GPU, just a few facts to take into consideration.
