Well I posted the newegg link to the EVGA 1050ti for a reason having just bought the 1070 version.
As the user reviews state best build quality of the lot, quieter under load too.
I've done all the reviews EVGA nose ahead, would not go for the gigabyte it's pretty generic.

Yup, that's actually where I started from in looking at all the 1050, 1060, 1070, RX450-480's and narrowing it down to 1050's and 1060's. I appreciate the link. EGA looks to be the best for 1050ti's. It's just so weird getting back into the nVidia ecosystem again...but exciting, too! How's the 1070? (as if I need to ask Giggle )

What you spend in gas counters any savings.

Certainly seems that way but I don't like to wait. If it wasn't the weekend, I wouldn't mind so much but if I order it today, it won't get here until Tuesday/Wednesday. Or I could just take a an hour and some ride to Ocala....I just won't put the a/c on...

=-Rigs-=

The 1070 runs great but like I said the 1050ti will balance well with your comp specs giving you way more than you thought possible gaming into the future.
The EVGA 1050ti comes in the single fan SC & the higher spec twin fan SSC, if you can spend the little extra I would get the SSC
Let us know how things go.

NASA needs to advertise tickets to Mars.

Very very exclusive... watch my fingers, very, very exclusive.
So exclusive the tickets are made of unobtainium.
An amazing opportunity, just amazing...so amazing your rich friends money is no good.
Imagine that only your money built on the back of stupidity & the tiny tiny wages of other suckers is good.
The whole world is gonna be watching you exclusively.

Boom! you have the Kardashians & the Trumps locked in & trampling over each other to board the rocket.

I think a 1050ti would be affordable & balance nicely with the rest of your hardware.
They are fast.

A 1080 would be a waste of money both in cost & your machines abilty to push it along.

Thanks but truthfully forgot I had a mortgage until I could see the end in sight. Then just went all out for 18 months throwing everything I could muster at it.

Paid the house off last year so decided to upgrade the comp for the first time in 10 years.
Built the last one to coincide with the release of Vista 64.
Have'nt been gaming much the last 5 years except a bit of fps retro gaming due to not having the machine to run the lastest titles.

Bought this setup & paid the same as my pentium 1 machine complete with a whopping 500k of ram in 96.

Processor
Intel Kaby Lake Core i5-7600K Unlocked Quad Core 3.8GHz
6MB Cache
Motherboard
Z270 Asrock extreme 4
Memory
16GB (2x 8GB) DDR4 3000MHz
Storage
256GB m.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSD
2TB 3.5" 7200rpm SATA HDD
Case
Phanteks Eclipse P400 Tempered Glass Mid Tower Case - Black/White
Operating System
Microsoft Windows 10 Home
Graphics
EVGA GeForce GTX1070 8GB
Watercooling
Cooler Master Nepton 120XL Watercooling kit

LG 27 gaming monitor
Picked up Doom & battlefield 1 on sale for under $80.00 nz

Old machine was so well balanced & bulletproof served me well.
Might turn her into a media box.

The good news is that we completely fell in love with one. The bad news is that we completely fell in love with one.

Think of the house like a woman, it's on the market because aspects are'nt so enchanting to the previous owners anymore.

That frog became Captain as soon as he boarded that Skunk.
It's pretty obvious by his posture.
You can see it's still sinking in.
But how to notify the family of his change in fortune?
His sudden leap up the ladder, to owner of a sea fearing vessel.

Congrats Blue, you are a true gentleman & yes you are a little younger than me but shit at least we got brought up in the early days of gaming.
I have to admit to back then wondering if wow imagine games coming so close to movie production.
Well guess what they have, & also guess what? they are shit.
Just like your nations choice of president.
Well I really don't know what to say other than yes the olden day's were better & yes congrats to you & good luck with the car replacement search.

A kind message to our non-US friends - Trump won the popular election by 0.6%, so when you call Americans a bunch of idiots for making the orange dirt-bag the most powerful man in the world, just remember, you're only half right.

Get back to us in four long years.

You do realise the corner stone of his economic policy was to give his mates the billionaires a huge tax break in order for them to diligently then run to the hiring sites to create new jobs?
Here's the facts morons he hired to build his towers slave labour from out of country using Chinese steel.
His mates are not gong to use those tax breaks to give jobs to Americans but they will like that douche pocket that money and add to their fortune made from dad & interest over there life time.

Morons!

Seems like it's time to practice sayin' "President Trump". With that said, I think it's safe to say this is the first First Lady I would actually nail.

Go and grab her. Do it the Trump way!

When the world thought that you can go no lower than George W. Bush, Trump happened... I want an impeachment process started IMMEDIATELY! I know the Republicans don't accept presidential sexual misbehavior, so go for Trump, Republicans! Rotfl

Thanks America your best & brightest are blowing up our real estate sites to move to an enlightened society.!

You profess to being the greatest democracy....wrong.
MMP is the modern improved democracy.
You as a Nation under a dominant two party system are as divided now as the 19th century civil war.
