It all depends on what it claims to be, there is no rule that applies to every card.

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

Unless you have it on hand, it's really impossible by just looking at the pics.. Unless you have clear company pics and the seller sends you close up shots, which is quite unlikely..

If you have it on hand, use GPUZ.

one easy way to to see if there's a VGA output. NV cards stopped including VGA around the 400 or 500 series, so if the seller claims it's like a 1050 or something new but it has VGA its definitely fake.

Yes, it's fake. The 1050ti did not have VGA port.

yes 100% fake. Cross-referencing the GPU-z screenshots they provided with known specs is confirms it-GPUz reports 1050Ti and GP107 core (info that can be faked) but says 192 shaders at 780Mhz- an actual 1050Ti would have 768 shaders at around 1400Mhz+
