The Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti is the best video card to get if you have a budget PC with a low PSU. I prefer Nvidia cards over AMD because they have better performance per wattage ratio, and at just 75 watts, running only on the PCI-E slot without requiring any additional power cable, this card can perform much better than any other card at this wattage, thanks to the new Pascal architecture. This particular card from EVGA is overclocked to extract even more juice from the 1050 Ti, and it's certainly a better choice than other non overclocked models.
This card was the cheapest bargain on Black Friday 2016 ($169.99 CAD after MIR) and I purchased it mainly to play Skyrim Special Edition on my low-end gaming rig, and I am glad this card was released coinciding with the release of this game because this is all I need for now until The Elder Scrolls VI is released.
I have the Pentium G3258 overclocked to 4GHz, coupled with 8 GB of RAM, and with this card I was able to run the game in 1080p on Ultra at 60 FPS indoors and 40s-50s FPS outdoors depending on the complexity of the view you are facing. I even raised the game settings to Ultra++ by increasing the uGridsToLoad from 5 to 9 and tripling view distance of objects, grass & shadows, and I am getting a very playable ~30 FPS while the game has become tremendously better looking and more detailed when viewing vast open lands. So yes this card is powerful enough to play Skyrim SE very decently, in case this game matters to you.
The card never exceeded 64 C, and is usually around 60-62 C when gaming. On light desktop use it's only 28 C, and my condo is already a bit warm this time of the year with the heating turned on. The card is not noisy as well and runs generally smooth.
I am very happy with this purchase.
With this card I can smurf in CS:GO in 1080p at 300 fps and wreck newbs 10x faster than before.
$170 CDN after rebate. 1050 Ti for the sale price of the non-Ti. Price has skyrocketed since I bought it, currently at $230 on ncix.com. This pascal-based board does everything it needs to to push 1080p gaming at ultra settings and great frame rates, at 75W. Something no AMD cards can seem to do. Keeps this box right quiet.
holy damn hell, this thing is amazing! you honestly cant go wrong with this price, rockin 60+fps on overwatch with ultra settings
This thing kill! It can run most games smoothly on high settings in 1080p! And it meets the requirements for most games that uses more than 2gb vram!
This is an amazing little GPU. It does exactly what I need and supports multiple external monitors which makes the times I have to Code and home so much easier.
No RGB or other colour cycling, which I don't really care about.
It came factory overclocked which was nice since I don't really want to spend the time to mess with overclocking the parts of the system.
I think the only negative, which is something I knew about before buying it, is that most VR software does not allow this card. Usually you need a 1060 or up. So nothing too serious but something to keep in mind.
Don't let the lack of a 6-pin power connector fool you, this card easily achieves 60 FPS in a lot of AAA games (2016 and prior at least). However, that's not relevant for me, as I only play CSGO and DOTA2 - games this card is meant to play. Super efficient, very low noise profile. To get 5 stars it would need a 0Db fan mode for low/idle loads.
