What GPU should I get?

not so Important
 Share

So, I'm thinking on buying a GPU for gaming. I have 2 options of what card should I get but I just cant decide. Also I'm looking for a card that doesnt require external power so I went for these.

1st one is GTX 1050Ti https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N105TD5-4GD#kf

2nd one is a RX560 https://www.asrock.com/Graphics-Card/AMD/Phantom Gaming Radeon RX560 4G/

 

Which one should I go for? I'm looking for less than 180euros. Also which one is better and can I even run it? My psu outputs 330w.

All help is appreciated!

Can you list the rest of your specs? You probably have a big enough PSU, but you probably could have picked one up yesterday if your country does Black Friday. Possibly on cyber monday

What power supply do you have? And why do you want a card which doesn't require external power?

1050ti will be faster than rx560.

If budget allowed, get a 1060 or rx570.

330watt can run this GPU, if all of your other parts are new parts, but its very tight.

you might wanna get at least 450 watt.

If you don't have any spare power connectors from your PSU, you probably shouldn't be putting a GPU into that system even if it requires no external power.

 

I would just bite the bullet and upgrade PSU. Then when you can afford to buy a new GPU I would look into that then.

both card don't need external power. i have a 1050ti with external power, i think is just a waste of space.

Because it's likely just not a good power supply and I wouldn't trust it with any component you don't mind dying.

 

If you're fine buying a GTX 1050Ti and 3 months from now your 1050Ti dies then that's your call. I wouldn't make that call.

Also this. You can probably find a good PSU for around or under 50 euros, so not a lot to make back up. Go shovel some neighbors snow

No 330W PSU is good. Also, no one knows what brand it is, or what model it is. So... no one can tell you if it’s good.

Alright the GT 730 is not a gaming card, nor does it use a lot of power. It’s basically a card to plug more monitors into.

 

Uh mow lawns? I don’t know. Get a part time job? Be a lifeguard? Ask your parents if there’s something you can do to make money? (I’m assuming you’re young, sorry if you’re not).

 

Yeah it’s probaby not the best PSU. I would still recommend getting a new PSU. Even if you can’t make any more money, you spend 50 on a PSU, then you have 130 left to spend on a used card. That’s enough for like a GTX 970 or 770 or R9 380X. All of which will destroy a 1050 Ti

See above answers. Look at the recommended PSU for a 1050/1050 Ti. You not liking used parts is your own choice. It far outweighs price/performance than anything new at that dollar amount. eBay also has a fantastic money back guarantee.

Edit: if you really need a card, get a GT 1030. It’s at least better. Maybe you can find a new 750 Ti. But the above still applies

I would look on NVIDIAs website next time. It says 300 though so you’re good. Previous statement still stands. Buy at your own risk. It’ll probably be fine but prebuilts generally don’t have great PSUs
