Gtx 1050 2GB and Gtx 960 2GB.
Which will best for 2020 upcoming games of decent performance?

I know that, gtx 1060 ,1080 or highers for high-end upcoming games. But I just only talking about gtx 1050 and gtx 960 as compare. both card are little bit difference. Gtx 960 have 1024 cuda core and gtx 1050 have 640. But the 1050 gpu clock speed is higher than 960 And 1050 is a newer arcitacture than 960. Also 1050 have lower TDP than 960. But gaming benchmark result saying that 960 is ahead against 1050 ,minimum 10-15 FPS difference in letest games.

Despite lower gpu clock speed of 960, Can really overall It bet gtx1050?

In short, I am very confused that which one should I will get for letest upcoming games.
Explain me and suggeste plz...

The deciding factor might be what power supply you have.

What is the exact model of your power supply?

Bottom line, both these graphics cards have very similar performance, so price and what you PSU can actually support might make the decision very easy.

What is your budget for a new GPU? If you are going to get a GTX 1050, I would personally look for used on ebay or other used markets because you can potentially save around $50 over new. If you can extend your budget to $150-170 you could get a new GTX 1650 which is 15-20fps faster than a GTX 1050 ti and 5-7fps faster than a 1060 6GB. The GTX 1650 uses around 15-18watts more power than the 1050 ti and about as much power as the GTX 960.

How long has that Litepower unit been in service? I'm guessing that it's been in service around 9-10 years, since the original reviews of that unit were from 2008-2009, meaning it is very old and while it was "ok" for the price at the time, it was always a mediocre unit. I'd be VERY skeptical about using it with ANY new graphics card if it is more than 5 years old, and I would NEVER use it if it is as old as I believe it to be.

Even if that was a Corsair AXi or Seasonic X series unit and was 7-10 years old, I would recommend replacing it, much less it being a budget unit like it is, or was, when new.

Beyond that, neither the 1050 nor the 960 are very much recommended for games in 2020 unless you are willing to play with significantly reduced settings at 1080p. Forget about anything higher than 1080p. That ain't happening.
