Run some benchmarks on your 1050ti before you remove it, and then do some on your new gear! Let's see!

I got it by just paying $25 more! It's a zotac mini 1060 3gb 

Yes i did that! 

I'm getting 15 t0 20 fps more in GTA V ( Msaa 2x)

Witcher is surprisingly running very smooth! Like about average  60+ fps on 1080p high

And shadow of the tomb raider is also looking better !

I am definitely seeing a significant difference and that too with my old i5 2400

One important thing to mention!

Due to the old chip

I'm still seeing some slutters here and there

Later down the road 

I'll change it to an i5 3470 or something and hopefully that may also gain me a slutter free experience!

A worthy purchase in my opinion!

Hey guys!

 

I'm getting a good deal by replacing my current 1050Ti  to a 1060 3GB.

I don't have that much money to buy the 6GB Version but i can get the 1060 3GB so that 6GB card is not an option !    With that said,

I know the 1060 3GB will give me better gaming performance than the 1050Ti but exactly how much? And how less does it performs from it's big brother (6GB 1060)?

I'm just having this last talk  before buying!

Will it be worth it to buy the 3GB 1060 in exchange of 1050Ti?

 

THANKS!

The jump from a GTX 1050 Ti to a GTX 1060 3gb is hardly worth the hassle, can't you just sell the GTX 1050 Ti and look at the new GTX 1660 Ti?

General consensus is that the 3gb is not going to be worth your money. Can I ask what prices you're looking at?

From a shop, I'm getting an offer to give $30 to 40 more for a GTX 1060 3gb (MINI) 

(My card is also mini)

The problem is that i don't have any cash but this seemed a little affordable

Anything above $50 is not an option for me

It will probably not be worth, it is such a small upgrade, if you do not have a g-sync monitor you could consider something on the amd side, but we need to know you budget

Not more than $50

That's a problem i know

But as i mentioned above 

I'm getting the mini 1060 3gb in replace

by paying $30 to 40 more

I'll bargain with him

But do you mean it is literally not even worth for $30 or 40 more?

I might have to wait in that case

For $30 more, do it.  It's an upgrade and $30 is trivial (a good steak basically).  If I could spent $30 right now and get even 5 fps increase I would.

 

People need to realize the audience and that even small gains are infact.... gains.

You're selling yourself and your gear short, my dude. You could sell your 1050 ti for a solid 75+ on ebay these days without blinking. Take that and your 40 more, and look into a used 980ti, 1070, rx580 8gb, or even your 6gb 1060 on ebay

Actually i live in pakistan,

First of all, There's no ebay in my region and the market runs alot differently here!

your saying to save $120 for a 980Ti?

People buy used or refurbished 1050 2GB  for that price here in pakistan

 

Your point of view is right though but my region is saying to me "Nah bro.. Faak off"

Yeah, tons of 1070's going for $115 on Ebay.  /sarcasm

 

With work he could get a bit better, but for a nice easy no-sweat trade+cash?  I'd do it, enjoy your gaming increase and be done.

OK! So i have made up my mind!
I'll ask the shop retailer to lower some money in replace !
For $30 or less!   ill take it

But i'll additionally ask him for other cards in replace! 
Now can you guys suggest some models? Just don't tell me high wattage cards
