Well tbh in my currency you compare a 1.3k card to a 3k card.Now that's kinda retarded and the RX does exactly what it's suppose to do.You should learn what entry level means :D.This are most prob the best budget card on the market at the moment.
the rx550 for winner? What??! Why??
Are you retarded? The Rx 550 is steaming pile of shit, there is no point in buying this card, the GTX 1050 will wipe the floor with the Rx 550. A good sale will get you a Rx 460, for the same price. Just get an Rx 460 for a few dollars more, then compare it to the 1050.
