If you really want to go Nvidia on a budget, I'd suggest another £50 for the Zotac 1060 amazon.co.uk/Zot…060
Edited by: "pbyron1" 20th Feb

Does this perform £10 better than the Zotac/Palit brands?

Apart from the price difference, is the Asus variant better than Evga? scan.co.uk/pro…ost

LOL, if you want Nvidia on a budget spend an extra £50. Yeah because everyone on a budget can find an extra 35%!!
Why do PC component threads pull the same idiocy out every time. 35% makes a £500 build a £675 build.
Don't buy an i3 get i5, 8GB RAM best get 16GB, 400W PSU...eh get 500W just incase, m-ATX eurghh ATX for extra expansion, 240GB SSD oopsie 480GB to save upgrading later, etc, etc.

Just looked at some benchmarks and there is pretty much no difference between this and the 1050ti you can get for £130. The EVGA one will give you a 1-2 fps increase, runs 1 degree cooler and is 1db quieter.
Might as well save yourself £10 and get the Zotac.

Maybe if enough people are saying it, then there's some truth in it?

Anyway, if you're setting a budget for a build you still need to first work out what you'll need the PC for in the first place, so that becomes just as important as the money.

In your world, if you can't buy a decent car that will run with no problems for a little bit more, the best plan is to buy a dodgy car that won't go all the way up a hill instead because it's cheaper....

Obviously, in this case it depends what results you want from a graphics card but the 1050ti and the 1060 would be better if you're focusing on gaming (as in the title)

The more likely is feature creep is involved. Gaming isn't all about full textures and 60fps.
A 1050 will still give people a decent 1080p experience. The better advice would be to get a Red team card at this price bracket.
Your car analogy while making sense doesn't really have the same impact. A car is more essential than a casual gaming experience.

I agree, it's not all about 1080p/60fps or reaching 4K, but it's more about expectations. 'Why are you buying a gaming PC or graphics card?' should be the first question and everything else comes from there. I still hold that the 1050 is the bare minimum entry level and some people will end up being frustrated when new games don't run smoothly at full hd all the time with that card.

I also agree that in this sort of price bracket, the AMD cards are a very good option. You often get more power for your money there.
