GTX 1050 2 GB vs. R9 280x

Recommended Posts

The 280x is way more powerful than a 1050. For reference, the 290x is comparable to a 1060 6GB, and the 280x is basically one tier down from that, so its performance should be close to a 1060 3gb.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

Just for my own curiosity. Please leave suggestions for other graphics cards that you recommend to upgrade to in the future!

What resolution do you plan on playing at, and what graphic settings ?  The 280x wipes the floor against a 1050 crummy 2GB card ya know.

Wow, I did some research and had no idea. I have a guy locally selling one for $80 and thought about picking it up over my 1050

You can definetly play @ 1080p with graphics set to medium to high, and some tweakage in the nv panel.  Youll net 60fps.

Right now its 720p until I get my new monitor. I am just trying to squeeze some performance out of my unit

See that would be perfect. I am not a serious gamer. Just want a decent framerate

My 7950 (aka 280) is pretty comparable to my 1050Ti even, so I would absolutely choose the 280x.
