Which Graphics Card should I upgrade to?

Hi all, hope you had a great festive season.

Basically, I use my gaming computer to play games that aren't on console, so mainly MMORPG's , RTS games etc.

I currently have an A8-6600K CPU with a 750ti GPU.

I know the CPU is now classed as a old etc but my computer turns on really fast and most of the games I play don't seem to have issues.

But I will be giving my 750ti to a friend , and I'll be getting a new GPU. After doing some research it seems the best options to go for with the CPU I have are one of the following:


- 1050ti 4GB (£139.99)

- 1060 3GB (£189.99)

- RX 470 4GB (£? (can't seem to find a good UK price) ).


Which should I go for? Is there perhaps a better choice which I haven't mentioned?

Exactly what I was thinking.
If you monitor is 1080p just go for the 1050ti. If it's 1440 then 1060 3GB.

Yep only do 1080p gaming, cheers
I’d stretch a bit and get the 6GB 1060.
Memory seems to be the limiting factor these days and will only continue.
Also gives entry level VR options if you ever take a fancy to it.
If budget is to tight 100% the 3GB over 1050ti

1050ti would do a very good frame rate at medium/high settings, a 1060 3gb and you could step it up to pretty much max in everything, 1060 6gb would be overkill really if you intend to stick with just 1080p gaming.
For the type of games you play 1050Ti is more than good enough. I can't understand why on a website dedicated to saving money, people will always urge others to buy the more expensive option which is overkill for their needs. Do you mostly play flash version of pong, omg get a 6GB 1060!

Would I feel the benefit between 1050ti 4GB and 1060 3GB with the CPU I have? (A8 6600K)
The trouble with nVidia low end cards is the lack of freesync support. As soon as you buy a new monitor the output of comparably priced AMD cards is smoother. I'd personally discount the 1050 and 1060 3GB.

The RX 470 was discontinued quite a while ago in favour of the slightly faster 570. It's a good choice if you want loads of power but personally I'd go for the RX 560 4GB for £110. I play similar games and find my RX 460 is more than enough.

Too many reviews compare them like for like and ignore the real world conditions entirely. The RX 470 was discontinued quite a while ago in favour of the slightly faster 570.

Thanks I'll look into the 560 too
