Gtx 1050

  1. This one has 6pin connector ( should OC better ) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137059&cm_re=gtx_1050-_-14-137-059-_-Product
  2. No 6 pin but EVGA quality http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487297&cm_re=gtx_1050-_-14-487-297-_-Product

Gtx950 EVGA refurbished http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487204&cm_re=gtx_950-_-14-487-204-_-Product

All i play is Dota 2 and CS;GO on 1440p

I am replacing Rx 460 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131695 which is terrible, extremely low fps in CS:GO I used to have gtx 950 which was performing quite well while it worked. Also Is there a big difference between having 6 pin on a GPU and drawing power from motherboard? What in your opinion is the best for the money? Should i consider to get 1050ti at all?

Thank you

A vanilla 1050 has roughly the same performance as a 950 so if it's between the two I'd go for the newer chip since it'll be more efficient and have support for longer. No, I wouldn't worry about whether it has a 6 pin or not. And yes I would consider 1050 ti... It's only an extra $10 since you're looking at the more expensive 1050s.

Thank you for your reply. the only reason I was worried about the 6 pin is that my previous GTX 950 had 6 pin and this RX 460 does not. Roughly they suppose be the same in terms of power . Snce the rx 460 performs terribly, i am assuming that 6 pin helps to improve performance.

In regard of 1050ti, I only consider GPUs with 2 fans for the quite performance. 2 fan 1050ti cost $30-$40 more

Well the 950 was an architecture that was designed for having a 6 pin connector whereas these current options were not. It's incredibly doubtful (IMO) that the manufacturers put the time into these budget chips to properly incorporate the extra power delivery needed to make the extra connector worthwhile.

A single fanned 1050ti has the same amount of fans for an equivalent TDP than a dual fan card from 1070 or 480 so don't worry about it. It will still be quiet; check the reviews to put your mind at ease if need be.

i recommend the msi 1050ti if you decide on that option

I also had a rx460 gigabyte 4GB GPU and it wasn't very good at all . My computer would crash during any game, underclocked it and it ran stable . Took it back and replaced it with MSI GTX 1050 x 2 gaming GPU and it is awesome , benchmark went from 1070- 1750 . My FPS went way up ! this card is a Beast !

I ordered MSI RX 470 Armor for 149$. I will give AMD another chance. if it's gonna crash again , then I will go for 1050 or 1050ti

The 460 performs nearly identically to the 950. And not super far off from the 1050ti. You won't see a huge performance boost.

That is what i thought and why i bought this RX 460 for $80

Currently my fps drops from 100 to 5 in cs:go which makes it unplayble. In dota 2 i get 45 fps on avarage.

When i was using my GTX 950 i had 120 avarage in CS GO and around 85 in Dota 2
