Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have had a pc with a the ROG STRIX GTX 1050ti in it for a while and have decided to upgrade. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should upgrade to and how much I could sell the 1050 ti for to make it cheaper?

What is your budget and location? I could recommend a 2080 Ti but I am guessing that is not within budget, help us, help you. Also what are your current system specs?

As the other comments say, we need more info on your existing hardware, what performance you want/expect, and what you expect to spend on the upgrade.

 

At any rate, the new Ampere-based Nvidia GPUs may be coming out soon, so Nvidia are releasing lower cost versions of their cards based on Turing architecture, most notably the GTX 1650 Ultra, which uses the same chip from the 2070. Given your  existing card (and nothing else) I suggest waiting for that hardware release.

My specs are:

Motherboard - gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 r5
Ram - Corsair Vengeance Dual Channel 8gb
CPU - AMD FX-8350
GPU - ASUS Strix Rog GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4gb
PSU - Corsair CX750

$350- Budget

I'd personally go for CPU and motherboard first.

And wait for Nvidia to release new GPU's.

You have a very balanced system. FX8350 is perfect for GTX1050TI and vice versa. But sadly GTX1050TI is the maximum that FX8350 can handle without some noticeable and annoying bottleneck. Of course frames would be better in some parts of the games, but in general the overall performance wouldnt improve that much on many modern games. Not every modern games, but the games that really matters like Valorant, Warzone, Breakpoint, The Division 2, etc.

 

I wont recommend any VGA upgrade. You need to upgrade both, CPU - motherboard and memories too, off course - and VGA to have better frames. It would be irresponsible recommend any VGA to you. I don't do that with my clients and I wouldn't do it here either.
