Posted 1st Jun
Recently bought a gtx1050 gaming laptop it now has a 256gb name drive as well as a 1 tb hard drive,memory has been upgraded to 16gb I bought it from the Argos clearance website about 5 months ago.Just wondering if I should be looking at getting another laptop with better gpu or holding onto it for another year what’s everyone’s thoughts

The 1050 will play most games easily. Not with the highest fps but it will handle them. Unless you want to spend about 1k there isnt many that have a much better gpu
Glad you said that,I’m mainly a PS4 pro player but find myself playing the odd game on the laptop,so I reckon it could hold out for another year or 2
Maybe when the new consoles come out things will get cheaper and better
I have a GTX 1050 laptop and have been able to play everything I want on low/medium settings. I'm planning to keep it for several years - even when it becomes too outdated for new games I have a huge backlog of games to play!.
You know you are both making me appreciate the fact that i still have a perfectly working laptop.I do have to make sacrifices on say warzone to low settings but it runs at a fairly stable 60fps and games like warhammer 2 total war and farcry 5 run on medium
It runs metro exodus on medium at roughly 40fps
Depends what you want, I had a 1070 and that managed just about everything at 1080p/ultra and then dropping to medium or low for 4K, was kind of overkill for the 1080p screen it had. 1060 is pretty perfect for 1080p at a nice frame rate, but my laptop had a 144Hz screen and you really need something pretty powerful to make use of that, was gloriously smooth. If you go for something with a nice high Hz screen you need a much better card than a 1050.
