The best investment for an old system.
November 8, 2017
Amazing card. I bought my computer in 2008: Intel Core7 i920, 8 GB of DDR3, 350 power supply. It served me well for almost 10 years. But my Radeon HD4850 was outdated and on it's last breath. Changing the entire system is expansive. For a new graphic card, changing my power supply was almost an obligation. And I found the Zotac GTX 1050. No need of extra power from the power supply to run the card. So is cost me only $149 and my computer is like a new one. I can run old games at MAX and new games at medium. 60 FPS with no problem. Installation is easy and compared to my old card, the fan is really quiet. You only need a free extra slot for the fan. But the card itself is really small. Installation is really easy and drivers from Nvidia are far better than those old Catalyst. With this configuration, no bottleneck at all from the CPU. I couldn't be more happy.
