Good for old competetive games such as CS:GO and League of Legends, but I don' think You will be satisfied with performance in, for expample PUBG.


Poor

Despite the lower cost (and therefore better value for performance), you're better off with GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 3GB, or you can wait for the GTX 1650 instead.

Good graphics card for normal-quality games, Normal Minecraft is okay but with mods it runs around 40 FPS, I have a lenovo y520, with this card installed but I don't like it that much because big games like Dying Light, Portal 2, Stranded deep need to be played at medium quality to prevent lag, and even then the FPS is around 40-50. Wouldn't recommend

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.

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.

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.
