Should I upgrade?

Hello,

 

I have Club 3D Radeon R7 250X 1GB http://www.pcgarage.ro/placi-video/club-3d/radeon-r7-250x-1gb-ddr5-128-bit-3/ (sorry, I didn't find an english version).

I wonder if I should upgrade to nVidia 1050, this one https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-GTX-1050-GAMING-X-2G.html#hero-overview

Can I get some feedback? Pros and Cons?

 

I am a casualy gamer, I enjoy CS GO, LOL and now I started to play Last Man Standing and is kinda bad on my specs.

Proc: i3 4170

RAM: 2x HyperX Savage 1600 4GB (8gb in dual channel)

I don't know should you?

Are you having bad framerates?

Is the pc too slow?

Why do you think you should upgrade?

I do have bad frames on Last Man Standing, but CS and LOL are playable.

Considering the fact that the 1050 is pretty much double the power of the R7 250X then I would buy it, but I say that only if you're not happy with the current FPS you are getting in games. It seems silly to upgrade if you are already satisfied with your current system. Not much extra power will be used if you went with the 1050 though.

Is playable but not satisfing. Is a big diffenrence between 1050 vs that 250x? I can't find too many differences, only Pixel Fill Rate, but I'm not sure what is this for.

Gtx 1050 vs 250x is about 2-3 generations ahead which often means a big difference.

I would get the 1050, would be a decent upgrade. I would also consider the 1050Ti if you can find a decent offer for them.

I'm still waiting for someone to explain me some pros and cons :( I don't want websites like gpuboss or whatever because those 2 products have some specific diferences. What about that pixel fill rate?

I just checked some 1050 reviews and compare it to the 250X reviews and you can expect double framerates.

 

Even though the sites didn't compare them in the same charts but looking at the games they played and the settings they used, yeah double framerates

I just literally googled r7 250X GPUZ and saw 18.2 GP/s pixel fill rate

and 1050 is 43.4 GP/s

Yea, but I mean, how this affects the performance?
