Just get a code off any site,1.99 each and works every time.
Yeah I have a 1060 with my old quad core. But it's faster than a 1050ti which I think is a bit too slow. I have to run low details to stay above 60 in games like Anthem. A year down the line and you'd be sobbing for an upgrade :D The 1200 really isn't bad though but just for £50 extra you could get so much more.
that deal is SO bad I wonder why is it even hot?
You know what I thought the same thing as of 2 weeks ago. A friend of mine built a budget system using a b450 motherboard and a 1200 cpu and paired with a gtx 1060. I can't fault the £50 CPU. He is enjoying the likes of GTA 5, Gears 5, Forza ect at 1080p 60FPS. I can't comment on the 1050ti though.
