The performance is rather lackluster in 2019, but if you get a GIGABYTE card, you can overclock it to rather high levels and get even some new games running on the highest settings. I have overclocked this card to HD 7970/GTX 1050 Ti level.

Nice GPU for the budget gamer. If you don't want 60 fps at every game and you are content with 40-50 fps, this GPU will do the work. Best if combined with G-Sync.

Was a fine GPU for my use case currently (gaming at medium-high 1050p). Overclocked and the performance is nearly similar to GTX 1050-Ti but lacks 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM that the GTX 1050-Ti has (GTX 1050 has 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM). If you're upgrading your GPU or is building the new rig, not worth for the price while you can just buy the RX 570 4GB and gets nearly double of performance of this GPU.

The GTX 1050 is a terrible value. Spend less and get about 80% better performance with an AMD Radeon RX 570.

Sure it's not super amazing and can't run Real Life™ at 100 million fps at 8K, but for a budget card it's really good.

It's cool, quiet, and reasonably priced on the used market while still offering reasonable entry-level performance as of early 2020. I've been using mine while I clean up my heavily used 1070Ti, and I was expecting a lot worse to be honest. Its a good entry-level 1080p or 'E-Sport' card, running most things on 'low' settings at 1080p just fine. It even managed to run 'Medium' 1080p settings on Metro Exodus at 45 to 60fps, although hairworks and tesselation were both turned off. Still impressive for a budget card in a demanding title. Highly recommended card if you can find it cheap, and overclocks reasonably well too - start at about 150MHz clock and 200MHz memory in afterburner with a small bump of 5% to voltage and 7% to power.

I've got the Asus Dual Cooler version, and works like a charm. The GTX 1050 might not be the perfect card for everyone, and might struggle to run some games in settings higher than medium, but it works great for all E-Sport titles, and does an excellent job with older games, both AAA and Indies. Tried it in some newer games and it still holds up pretty well, compared to other better cards. It's a great GPU to pair with a cheap CPU like an i3, or a Pentium G4560.
