    Great card. Excellant performance!

    I was trying to find more in depth reviews because most would just say something along the lines of, "it plays all my games at high settings," but didnt state if those games were AAA titles. I am here to say yes it can run high/ultra setting on a lot of games such as doom will run at ultra at 80-90 fps, tomb raider def. ed. Will run at about 100fps, ghost recond wildlands will run at 60fps with a mix of med to high settings and pubg can run at med/high settings pending where you arr comfortable with your frame rates. I know performance. Will vary for everyone so i will give my specs as a baseline, i have a ryzen 5 1600 overclocked to 3.9ghz 16gb of ddr4 2400 , and now the 1050ti with a mild overclock on the core of 110mhz and 300mhz on the memory, this card has supplemental power from the 6 pin connector on the side or I wouldnt have tried it because most 1050ti's draw their power straight from the pcie slot. I wouldnt say this is a future proof card but while GPU prices are still super high its a bargain considering other 1050tis are much more in price. All your games will run at 1080p no problem, its just the settings inside the game might need to be tweeked for individual preferences.

    Handles all current games with ease...

    One of my son's video cards took a nose dive so I did some quick review checks online then headed to my local BB. I knew they had at least one of these and multiple other 1050 ti's about the same price. MSI makes great cards and the cooling design on this is excellent. My youngest went from playing his favorite (battle royal) game at med to ultra with an FPS increase, definitely a big win. It's also whisper quite and relatively cool while gaming. Compared to the other manufactures in stock for around the same price, this card has a faster core and memory clock, a definite plus! If you check out YouTube comparisons most point to this being the card to get if you want a 1050 TI and after a few weeks of hard core use, I agree with them!

    1080p Gaming - Good Solution

    Just bought this for a new "budget" build. Been testing this 1050 Ti out for the past few hours and I am very pleased with this purchase. Quick summary about the goods and bads for this graphics card Good 1) Runs cool and quiet. MSI's cooling solution is quiet and also keeps the graphics card cool. I like this 2) Overclockable. I was able to get a little more power out of this by manually overclocking it a little further. Not required, but its nice to know I can get a little more out of this graphics card 3) Plays pretty much all triple A titles you throw at it. I'm constantly getting over 60 FPS on high settings at 1080p. The bads 1) No backplate 2) The red is a little too obnoxious 3) Personally I'd trade that DVI output for another HDMI output.

    Great mid-tier graphics card without breaking the

    It was an easy installation off the bat. Obviously, it's way better than the on-board graphics card I got when I built my PC a few days ago. However, I went from extremely choppy graphics to smooth, crisp, and clean images. I'm an avid gamer; playing Overwatch, Black Ops, etc. The card is able to keep up with the settings I have selected. I only have a 1080p Vizio TV at the moment, so I don't have the graphics settings too high. In Overwatch though, the frame cap is 300 in game, and I'm able to pump out 120+ not overclocked, but the TV can't really handle it. I'm hyped to see what the GPU is fully capable of on my soon-to-purchase 1ms, 144Hz monitor.

    Bought this for my sons computer, he had a GeForce 560 card and complained it was too slow, checked around and did some price checking, this card was the biggest bang for the buck. With Best Buy’s price match it was well with in budget. Installed nicely and still used the 6 pin connector from the power supply. Most important was my son was very happy with the upgrade, for the next couple hours all i could here was how good the graphics look and there was no lag. So all in all I am very happy with this card, good price, easy to install and set up, and performed as hoped.

    So I recently wanted to get back into PC gaming but unfortunately I don't have a lot of money to drop on a rig. I purchased a hand me down computer from a friend with some ok hardware but did not have a GPU. I shopped around for a bit before finding the MSI GTX1050. I have to say the games that I am able to afford right now like World of Warcraft is able to run on high settings. I don't know what else games it could run cause like I said unfortunately I don't have much to check them out but I'd say if you're an old gamer head looking for a budget card this is where you should look.

    If your going for a budget PC and don't want to buy a used card, this one is great. It's handled every game I've thrown at it max/near max settings and maintained over 60fps 1080p resolution. If you play 1080p this is a great card. I ran a Steam VR test for kicks and giggles and according to the results it should handle some games ok, but they still recommend a higher card. Black Ops 4 is the first game I've played where it hit under 60, but it was like 57 (only for a bit) and it looks amazing! (And so does the card)

    Massive, loud, but very worth it

    I got a great deal on this card by price matching it with newegg. Had to move my hard drives to install it since the card is pretty big. It runs loud, even on silent, but honestly it's such a great value for the price point (bought around $190) that I can't NOT recommend it. if you're in the market for a new card, you can't really go wrong with this. Plus I like the look. I give it 4 stars because online I've read that the LEDs can change color but this card does not seem to have that functionality or the software I'm using is outdated, still a great buy.

    I purchased the MSI 1050 Ti based on several review for my kids PC. He loves playing games like Guild Wars 2 and FFXIV but always seems to lag out as his Frame rate drops. He has to dial the graphic settings down low just to make through battles. After installing this card, He can see the games for what they are meant to be seen. Beautiful graphics and smooth transitions. This is a great card for a low budget PC to play the games he enjoys.

    Easy Install, Nice Features

    Posted

    I purchased a GTX 1050 Ti after my Radeon 7850 lost a fan. The install was easy (it came with a very entertaining comic book), and after a couple of reboots I had the software updated without issue. We're not hard-core gamers, and the PC doubles as a home office PC as well. The best feature is the software, which allows you to easily select how to run the card (game, quiet, extra-cool, etc.). The only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is because I haven't completely explored the features. So far so good!

    Easy to Install, Seamless Graphics

    I installed this GPU in an HP Envy 700-214 because I was tire of the integrated onboard GPU. Hardware installation took about 3 minutes, including cable management, and the software installation took about 15 minutes. Restarted the computer and I was in business immediately. I will comfortably say my graphics are about 3-5x better. Went from gaming on the lowest settings at sub-10fps, to High settings at 60-90fps. This card doesn't break a sweat, and the driver support is second to none.

    Best card for the money

    I have been impressed by the quality of this card for the price. Graphics are great with no latency. My only issue was related to BIOS. This is more of a complaint about the industry as whole but it would be nice if DIY components included better instructions and troubleshooting. Always seem to find my fixes online (YouTube) and when the card wasn't recognized, I had to update the BIOS. After that, no issues. Overall- best card for the money. Tons of value.

    This card replace my older 560 card and I must say the performance jump is astounding. It easily triples the performance of my previous GPU. I works perfectly with my older generation Intel I7-960 CPU and ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard. This is one of the few cards out there that the Cripto-Miners have not killed the pricing on. I was able to buy this GPU for RETAIL in lieu of the ridiculous mark up they are getting on the 1070's and 1080 TI cards right now!

    My previous video gaming card was MSI and it’s lasted 4 years. My husband bought this video card for me for the recent World of Warcraft expansion and I am in love with it! The graphics inside Zandalar was absolutely stunning. Haven’t any any FPS lag so far, game runs at 58-60 FPS I haven’t messed with any of the custom settings yet. I would absolutely recommend this video card to anyone who is looking for a good video card.

    Great Card at a Good Price

    I know that video cards can get pricey, but this has honestly given me everything I need. From smaller games like Minecraft and Sims 4 to bigger MMOs like Guild Wars 2, I haven't run into a single game that I can't play on the highest quality. The red is a little obnoxious, but my PC build doesn't have a window, so I'm not bothered by it.

    I bought this card a couple of years ago. It still can play most of the games that are out there today. I don't overclock it and just use it normally for games. It is very quiet and doesn't put out as much heat as other cards. Yes, there are newer and better cards out there, but this one is still standing the test of time.

    This is a high-performance video card that provides significant improvements over the OEM junk. Resolution and refresh rates are much better (than OEM) using the same monitor. This is not a real gaming card but works perfectly as a high-performance card for my communications director (she uses photoshop, illustrator, and in design frequently).

    I don't want to say anything bad about the card. it is a decent card, but i think it is still outdated. i purchased to allow me to play my game with out crashing. which it does. it is a temporary fix until i get my RTX ti cards. it plays the game well at lower settings for the new games. it is a bit over priced for its age. but a good solid stable card.
