Currently the cheapest 1050 Ti that I can find for a decent mid-entry level graphics card.

Link to manufacturers specifications is HERE!
Manufactuers part code: GV-N105TD5-4GD.

Edit: Just had a dig around, and I think this is the cheapest any GeForce 1050 Ti has been available around these parts.

can someone recommend a GPU that is better than this but still under £200?

AMD Radeon RX480 4GB (8GB if you are lucky).

EDIT: Well you can get the RX 580 4GB - for £194.99 HERE! and it's only £191.39 from HERE! but only one in stock presently.

Rx480 4gb is around £170 or you might be able to get the 8gb version if you look around. Have the 4gb Asus isn't not that loud seems pretty decent for the price.

They've pretty much all gone at that kind of price, you might be able to get an RX 470 for that price now though.

Save for the RX 480 if you can, or even get a used 390. 1050 ti is an okay card but won't last for many years, especially as the 480 gives around double the amount of frames as the 1050 ti for not much more money.

This is a good deal for this card, but a bad investment if you want longevity out of your rig.

This is the price 1050ti should have always been. It was about £10-£15 too expensive but now the market has calmed down it is more realistic.

This specific card is superb for the money because although it limits overclocking, it requires NO external power. It is the fastest possible GPU that will run on slot power only. That means it's a big winner.

Amazon are price matching Scan afaik.

I'm patiently waiting for the gtx 1080 ti to hit around the £400 mark what are the best brands can anyone recommend?

Not in stock at Scan, and then there is P&P to add on, so it costs an extra £5+

By the time a 1080ti is around £400 it'll be mostly pointless. You'll have a new generation card for similar money that is better overall.

Same way GTX980ti was superseded by the GTX1070 and even when the 980ti had a price cut you were better off with the GTX1070.

It depends on what you want from your card and how tight the 200 budget mark is.

The 470/480/580 (8/8/4gb) fits slightly under 200.

If you want to stay on green, you can get a 1060 3gb for under 170-180, or a 1060 6gb for slightly more than 200.

I personally have a preference to NVIDIA as they've been more stable for myself and offer a less hassle experience than AMD has offered in recent history.

There are a number of reasons to chose either company, really, it comes down to personal preference.

Also, if you can wait 2 months, you'll have some really awesome options available, the next set of Vega cards should be out, and maybe the Volta cards too..

I know it's a typical refrain: But if you want, you will have a nice set of options available, and both companies have appeared to suggest the next set of cards is going to be a *massive* upgrade.

Only one of those deals is still available, the Amazon one. Also recommending a £179.99 3GB GTX 1060, vs. a £191.39 - RX 580 is terrible. The GTX 1060 3GB needs to be about £159, for the price to performance to make sense.

EDIT: Please see comment two down, GTX 1060 3GB for £156.98, so not too shabby.

​Can't the 480 be flashed to a 580 anyway?

The 580 is just an overvolted, binned, 480.

But why risk it?

That voids warranty and gets you what? 3%?

156.99 for a 1060 3gb sounds perfect.

​Are you kidding? it's only just come out.

1050 Ti runs really cool and low on TDP, so a really nice card for quiet / SFF / HTPC builds.

Amazon lied to me! It said it had only 1 left in stock so i quickly bought it.
Now it says 2 left in stock... well done Amazon... well done...

Thanks OP, I've ordered - Heat!

Ha, I see someone at Trusted reviews has ripped this deal off here ( I can only assume) and no credit given. Then they are using their own affiliate links, gotta love internet journalism.

Probably Radeon RX480 or RX580 will be your choice. Performance on the level of 1060.

Title only says 1050, not ti. Picture however, does say ti.
Wouldn't risk it, you don't know what you're getting.

You are a very patient one! Lol MSI and Gigabyte are quite good brands. Gaming version of the cards are usually the top quality. But you are facing with a long time of waiting.

Certainly, more than adequate.

Is this a worthwhile upgrade from a GTX 970? Ta.

Pretty sure this is a joke. But just in-case, no, it's much worse than a 970.

Apologies. I only assumed you were joking because you have a nice card.
Yes the naming is.. odd. The 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 part determines the quality of the part, the 900/1000 part just signifies what generation it's from.
Not always, but generally the 50 of the newest generation is better than the 60 of the last generation and so on like that up through the model numbers. So this is better than the 960, but not the 970.
Though to tell for sure, you have to check benchmarks.

Why would you waste money on a 3GB GTX 1060 when the more powerful 6GB version isn't much more?
