Get into the world of low fps gaming with the gtx 1050


It isn't that bad at all to be fair and not everyone can afford a high end pc. Don't be such a snob.

Get into the world of low fps gaming with the gtx 1050


I was thinking about more getting into the world of affordable pc gaming in the current market. It has a fairly decent card at a price range that others do not.
I think people are trying to help but doesn't always come across like that. Seriously, If you have about £400 then buy a Ryzen 3 2200g APU and build a small pc with integrated graphics. You get a much better processor and the graphics are not too bad. Then in a few months if you are serious you can always drop in a cheap graphics card. You could get pretty good performance for about £300-£340 depending on ram prices. Much better upgrade path too!!

The GPU is perfectly capable of 60fps @ 1080p in modern AAA games if you run medium settings. What is wrong is the obsolete cpu which is well below the minimum recommend on nearly all recent AAA games from the last few years.

Don't do it, the cpu is completely outdated and obsolete. It has no upgrade path and will struggle with modern games.

this ...get a ryzen 3 instead
Whilst I was joking you still need to manage your expectations. This gpu won't be able to run some games at ultra or high settings depending on the resolution. So double check which games you want to play prior to buying.

Everyone can stop crying now.

They weren't crying. They were laughing and pointing directly at you, there's a difference.

It be a mid range graphics card (£150) but the rest is heavily compromised.

As others have said 2400g is a good starter way to go and bring you to current range with in a budget (Ryzen gen 2 due out next week) and scope to move forward.

Other way would be to consider 960/970 gpu's that are on par/better paired with i5's. Xsonly have some msi's around this budget.

My brother has an 860K and the bottlenecks he hits are few and far between with a 1060 6gb. Obsolete is a little harsh - although no upgrade path is a killer. Decent for the price given the current RAM/GPU market, however it's important to factor this in.

Unfortunately no, it’s a socket released in 2013 and there has been FM3, FM3+ and now the current FM4. Even the best FM3+ processors struggle to hold 60fps in the latest AAA games.

CPU’s on FM2/FM2+ were average performing when new.

The other problem is this system uses DDR3 so even if you wanted to upgrade to a modern platform you also need to buy new DDR4 RAM.

Fair enough. You seem to know what your talking about. I guess these days there really is no cheap way of getting a desktop. I think I will wait until the new cards are released and try and get one direct. Thanks for responding.

At the moment GPU, RAM and SSD prices are all very inflated. There is a global shortage on solid state memory and new factories are not due to start production until 2020. RAM and SSD prices are nearly twice what they were 18-24 months ago. GPU’s are not only impacted by the shortage of memory but also the massive demand put on them by crypto-miners.

I have money aside to build my new pc but I cannot bring myself to do it at these prices. It’s a gamble, prices could go up before coming down.

It’s a terrible time price wise for building/buying a pc

I know. I have my monitor plugged into a laptop. I need something soon aswell. But I dont want to pay £13/1400 on a graphics card that is nearly 2 years old. Thats why I got the asus GTX1070 deal for £800 but the 2 computers they sent wouldnt turn on so laptops direct refunded me. They have taken them off their website now and only have the i7 models for sale. They said there was a production problem with them. Now I am hungry for a new desktop. I didnt really consider this deal for myself. I just thought it might be useful for somebody. I wouldn't have posted it if I knew about the CPU as it kind of beats the purpose of having that card.
