Questions and Answers

  • Question: Hello.

    How do the 1050 and 1050ti compare to the 950 and 960, respectively?

    On the talk of the 1050s, which should I get? 1050 or 1050ti? I will be playing at medium-high settings, 1080p.

    Thanks.

    Answer: they are almost even really. the 1050 is a touch above the 950 and the 1050 ti is just about right on the 960. other than power draw, the 1050 ti is a bit too expensive right now to suggest over a 960 itself. the 1050 is a better buy for the money.

    but wait a month and this will change. not only will amd and nvidia tinker with pricing, but holiday sales will be upcoming in a few weeks. it's well worth the wait for supplies to grow, prices to stabilize and holiday sales to pop up.

    for a list of cards with specs and reviews where available keep an eye on this thread. still adding cards and reviews as i get the time to seek them all out. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-3047729/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1000-series-megathread-faq-resources.html#17902604

    Ok one more thing i have 4Gb of ram and after buying gpu i will have the same but i will buy more ram after some time.....So can it will work with 4 gb ram and later how much ram should i upgrade maybe 8gb is OK???


    You will definitely want another 4 GB of system RAM to play Farcry 5. It is the minimum requirement. Your CPU doesn't meet the minimum, but it should run on it. It isn't that much slower than the i5 2400 that they "require". I'm willing to bet that you'll be fine.

  • Question: Which one is better? Im new to this. They are the same price and i was wondering if there is a difference. Thanks


  • Question: I'm having a 10 months old Zotac GTX 950 2GB (2 Fans) that I bought for 0 (4.100.000 VND), and I'm thinking about upgrading it to the GTX 1050Ti by selling the old card and adding some bucks. But is it really worth the money?

    Answer: Depends on how much money you have to spend and whether you're not getting the performance you want now. The 1050 ti is only like 15-20% faster, so I personally don't think it's worth upgrading to anything worse than a 1060 3GB or RX 470 for you.

  • Question: Hello, i'd like to know which is better, 950 SLI 1050ti or 1060? And i'd like to play at high/max settings, how much fps will they get?

    Answer: The single 1060 is best. Nobody can tell you how much fps they will get.
