New GTX 1050Ti 4GB or used GTX 960 4GB

Hey guys,

 

it's late, I'm tired and therefor too lazy to think.
So, someone please help me to decide between a...

  • New GTX 1050Ti 4GB (~150€)
  • Used GTX 960 4GB (~100 - 150€) (Not sure what I can get it for, got a friend who might sell me his card for 100€)

It'll just be used for 1080p gaming on a high refresh monitor (120 / 144Hz)
Thanks!

1050 Ti is some 10% faster. But if you can get a 960 for 100E, that's also not bad. Both OC pretty great anyway but I find that OCing Maxwell can be more fun than OCing Pascal.

We have a NEW and GLORIOUSER-ER-ER PSU Tier List Now. (dammit @LukeSavenije stop coming up with new ones)

You can check out the old one that gave joy to so many across the land here

1050ti is just a little slower but it is newer so I would pick the 1050ti.

Thanks for posting complete sentences - not like the other guys.
But what is actually faster now? xD

1050ti and 960 are really similar, they'll perform better/worse game to game. I'd choose the 1050TI for lower power requirements, and overall newer architecture.

 

as long as your power supply has connectors for a GTX 960 it would be a good choice if you bought it for cheap.

Check out the review over at TechPowerUp instead of trusting me :P

As you can see the 1050 Ti is faster but not enough to justify paying 50% more imo, and you can OC that 960 anyway to close the gap or match it if you're lucky.

Then I'll just wait and see what I can get the 960 for. For 100€ I'll take it, but if he wants more I'll simply buy a 1050Ti.

1050 Ti is a bit faster and uses no power connectors. 960's core can't fully utilize the full 4GB of VRAM, which is why I am not recommending it.

What's the price difference there between the GTX 1050 Ti and the GTX 1060 6gb?

Unless it artifacts to crap at +47MHz on the core. The 960 is, in my experience, a crappy overclocker.

 

The 750 Ti, on the other hand...

I wouldn't take those numbers to heart as they don't specify 2GB vs 4GB models.
