If that's USD, it's a horrible deal

 

If that's CAD, then that's very cheap for an all new card

If you're not opposed to eBay, you can get away with a lot better a deal.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Pretty expensive.

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

That's about market price right now, there are some other cards for cheaper from companies such as Zotac, but they do not come with the awesome EVGA warranty

In search of the future, new tech, and exploring the universe! All under the cover of anonymity!

$170-$200 USD is current price range for a 1050 Ti before rebates or sales.

 

RX 570 is a better deal in that price range.

If it's $180 CAD it's not a bad deal at all.

 

If it's $180 USD it's a pretty bad deal.

 

This is an RX 580 for $200:

Here is an RX 570  for $160:

The RX 570 is a lot faster than a 1050ti and the RX 580 is bit faster than the RX 570.

Only 1050 Ti cards I am seeing under ~$170 USD are refurbished or open box.  1050 Ti went from an OK deal to a really bad deal now that RX 570's are around $160.

 

Ironically, this is what prices were like back before crypto mining blew out the GPU market.

Where do we disagree? I recommended the RX 570/580 + linked to some good examples because it is a better deal (in USD).

 

This is important: is the $180 from the OP CAD or USD?

 

If USD, then yes obviously an RX 570/580 is a far superior choice.

 

If CAD, $180 is not bad provided the card is like-new. The cheapest Canadian RX 570 I can find is $265 (CAD) through PCPartPicker.

Im not seeing any new 1050 Ti's anywhere for under ~$230 CAD, so I doubt its $180 CAD for a new card.

 

If its used, ~$180 CAD is an average price, but RX 570's can be had for ~$170 CAD in the used market.

 

The 1050 Ti is a bad deal in pretty much all cases.
