1050Ti or 1060(3G) for 1080p gaming?

Recommended Posts

Get a 480 or 470 instead for the extra VRAM.

Won't 3GB of VRAM be enough? I don't have the knowledge, so I'm asking.

Not really. Many games are using more than 3Gb when maxed out at 1080p.

Notice that the 1060 3GB can run all of the games around.  VRAM often scales according to the hardware as seen in a game like Space Engineers, it uses 6.5GB of VRAM on my GTX 1070.  But it also runs fine on a R9 380 with 2GB.

 

The GTX 1060 3GB will easily be the best choice among the 1050 Ti, and RX 470.  once you reach the RX 480 you may as well choose either that, or the 1060.

The 1060 is just way faster than the 470.


For the Best builds and Price lists here is a world where many points of the price have been predefined already for your convenience!

The Xeon E3 1231 V3 IS BETTER Than the Core i5 4690K and a Significantly better value for the non-overclockers or value shoppers.

The OS is like a kind food, Try it before saying if you like it or don't.

Hello guys!

 

Which one should I buy? 1060(3G) or the 1050Ti for 1080p gaming? For FPS games like DOOM and Crysis.

Will I be wasting money by buying a 1060? Is the 1050Ti enough?

Thanks!

What is 'enough'?


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Then go with the GTX 1060 3GB. It will last you for a long time. :)

In that case get a GTX 1060 or RX 480.

 

I'd lean toward the 480 as it supports Crossfire (the 1060 does not support SLI), has an additional GB (33%) of VRAM, Freesync monitors are much cheaper than Gsync ones, and has DX12 going for it. All that means is the 480 will stay relevant for longer, and have a better resale value when you decide to upgrade to something entirely different.

 

If by chance you live in India, the 480 will probably be notably cheaper as well.

Yes I live in India. But I'm going for a budget build. So Crossfire/SLI doesn't matter much to me. Also - as I mentioned in one of the comments in this topic-

I can buy a 1060(3G) (in India) or a 1060(6G) from amazon.com for the same price.

you cant actually do that as upon ordering the "1060(6G) from amazon.com" you will subjected to pay the import duty when the item reaches Indian shores. Do what i did ask a family or friend to buy it and bring it down(whenever they are flying back to India i.e,) this way i got a gtx 1070 for 30k inr (ASUS GeFORCE GTX 1070 8GB ROG STRIX OC). Ofc warranty will not be valid so u can OC it even further.
