I run a 730 in one of my machines, Its great for hi definition movies but sucks for gaming. I don't know how much of a performance increase there is between the 730 and the 740 is, it could be quite a bit, so take the above review of the 730 with a grain of salt.
Personally though I'd still lean for a 9xx card, just for the fact they're directX12 capable. There's something to be said for buying a card that's current.
