trying to sketch out my first build for around $500 and need opinions on these to cards. the EVGA seems like it would be better for the price but I don't know enough to make the decision I plan to play games like Ark, rust, battlefield, overwatch etc. Any input helpful thanks. build below.

Except for Ark, the 1050 Ti is a good for high to near ultra settings on 1920x1080. Ark is a different beast. Expect something like medium or low-medium settings. Last time I tried, it was poorly optimized for any GPU.

could you recommend a better one for ark under $550ish?

It's not just the graphics card; for Ark you also need a better CPU than an i3 6100.

A 980 Ti might get you 'ultra' settings at a smooth enough FPS. There's no good way around it, so it seems best to settle for a GTX 1060 or RX 480 / 470.
