Hi Folks!

I'm building a new PC and looking for suggestions for a budget GPU. I know nothing about them. I'm not a gamer but I do use photoshop and illustrator sometimes and occasionally edit photos. I have already used up my budget on the other components so want to keep the price to a minimum if possible. I currently have NVIDIA GeForce 210 (1024MB) but not sure if it will be compatible with my new system.

New system:

Ryzen 5 3600
MSI A Pro Max (similar to Tomahawk)
Patriot Viper Steel 16GB 3200MHz DDR4

The Zotac GTX 1050 ti is a beast of a card for the price. It requires no 6 pin connection to work. You can install it right into a PCI-E slot download the drivers and play. I used to have it before I upgraded my graphics card. Games such as CSGO, TF2, and smite I was well over the 200 fps mark with the settings at max, while games such as Rainbow 6 I was playing on high settings with around 100-120 fps. This card is a tank for the price and if your power supply is strong enough you will not have to upgrade anything in the current pc build.

Thanks for the replies guys! I'm more inclined to go for the MSI one as it's the cheaper one. I've seen a 2GB version for almost the same price. Presumably it's better?!
