I paid £150 for a 2nd hand GTX970 . Much better than a 1050 ti
well yup you needed to wait, yesterday i got my Gygabite 1050 Ti 4 GB GDDR5 Oc Edition, and it's amazing, and here in Macedonia costed me like hmm 180 euros or around 200 dollars.. that's joke price for such powerful GPU.. but anyway 970 it's more powerful, keep it up, as the VR is behind the door.. cheers ;)
How does she perform? I myself have a 970. But I am kicking myself for paying too much for performance I did not need. I should have waited and just bought a cheaper GTX 1050 Ti or RX 470.
Please add this GPU: zotac 1050 TI OC 4GB
