    temps are low, usage is low -> frames not good still

    Is your Power management mode in your Nvidia control panel(Global) set to Prefer maximum performance? Is your Power management mode in your Nvidia control panel(Overwatch.exe) set to Prefer maximum performance? Are your frames limited/capped in your in game settings and/or your MSI Afterburner?

    What is more important draw distance or fps?

    It's completely personal preference.

    GTX 1050ti, new $129.99 shipped after rebate

    I live in the US. Apparently some states pay tax on Newegg, some states don't... Newegg sales tax Towards Newegg only. Doesn't benefit people wanting the actual $20.00 to spend on anything outside of Newegg. The item isn't beat up, the box is. And as I have explained countless times, you can communicate with buyers about everything to do with the item. I've been buying and selling items on eBay for over a decade. Not once have I bought an item that arrived beat up or damaged in any way. I feel absolutely zero risk. Worry? Sometimes. But every single worry turns into exactly what I want, the item or my money back. More deals for other people. As some people say in their listings, their loss could be our gain. The majority of people just want quick cash. Best way to do that is for them to list at a price(or give a deal to a polite communicator) that is a great deal for them and not start it at an extremely lower price and hope the bidding goes up or take forever and list at a higher price that no one will pay quickly.

    $149.99 + tax = $161.99 In the form of Newegg credit. This is why they give these away all the time. Because you then spend more money at Newegg in the future. You're looking at it. This is where communication comes into play. You message the seller with any type of concerns before buying. Only the box is slightly damaged, not the GPU. The description clearly states there is nothing wrong with it. If you are unsure about something, use polite communication to clear it up. The reason they have no use for it is a question you could ask. Before buying. I like that people like yourself are skeptic when it comes to buying on eBay. This can only mean others are the same way and pass on deals left and right. Communication goes a long way to clear up any issues you may have with an item. You must also understand that once you receive an item, if it is not as described, you get every last cent of your money back. This is why those few sentences of details are very important.

    GTX 1050ti, new $129.99 shipped after rebate

    It's not $20 off, it's a $20 rebate that you must use towards future purchases. You have to pay $162 in order to get that 1050 ti. The one I just posted someone paid $112.66 and also got it shipped for free. This occurs 52 weeks a year. Look again(read the description). It was never installed and it's unused. Like new condition. The only difference is that it's no longer sealed in shrink wrap. It's the same as me buying a brand new one still sealed, taking off the shrink wrap and installing it into my PC. If one were to think this one is a scam, they'd be one of the people missing out on this deal. The buyer on the other hand is the one getting the deal. For $50.00 cheaper.

    Is this one relevant to you... $112.66 GTX 1050 ti It ended today and was $50 cheaper than the $162 you have to put towards the Newegg deal.

    You darn tootin'. They may just put food on their table.

    This is what you found in this hour. All of that changes in the next hour. And the hour after that. And the hour after that. And so on. And so on.

    GTX 1050ti, new $129.99 shipped after rebate

    Only to some. Two reasons... One, if I find these insane discounts, the majority of the time I am the one negotiating with these listings and buying the items I find to put food on my table and keep a roof over my head week in and week out. And two, most of the deals I find fluctuate on an hourly basis. Cary Elwes didn't fall off the Cliffs of Insanity and that was inconceivable to Vizzini. Of course this is from a fictional movie but sometimes strings can be pulled when you know what you're doing, what to look for and how to go about pulling them.

    I believed that you could have not been lying. I was even going to write that out but I'm replying to multiple comments here.

    No need, I believe you.

    I never said you could. I said you can find similar deals 52 weeks a year. You have to check eBay as much as possible to do so. And you have to communicate with sellers and negotiate prices with them. You may not see what I am talking about but you can find them. Gotta put your mind to it and message some sellers. Of course you see those. You have to keep scrolling. The deals are there, under the surface.

    Would you like me to post some gameplay of my 1070's gameplay? Your belief is why you're missing out on deals.

    It was fair game to that buyer and now owner of a brand new 1070.

    My 1070 was a stock photo and copied and pasted specs from Nvidia's website. I bought it and did not get scammed. Not everything is a scam dude.
