Slightly faster than a 1050 Ti for less money, and mine overclocked and benched well on air cooling. Definitely a good card.

Have this card for 3 years now. Still performs. Aiming to get an upgrade soon though. For the latest triple A titles with high (not ultra or something) settings at 2k this card just doesn't cut it anymore. it still performs smooth at 1080 medium though :) So for a budget system, I'd say. you'd still be good.
