Hello guys,so the title says it..should i get a 1050 2G or the ti version ? And which will give me more fps in games with this processor? I know its old but can hold these cards..
my specs:
Core 2 quad q6600 @2.4ghz (can be pushed to 3 ghz)
Gpu (current):His Hd 5450 @770 mhz /880mhz core and memory clock
Memory: 4 Gb ddr2(can be 8 gb)

Depends on the games especially if the game is cpu intensive. Maybe its a better choice to find an older used card for cheap like gtx 650 , 650 ti , 660 , 750 ti still you will get a big step of performance from your hd 5450.

Your current CPU is actually kind of weak for the GTX 1050/Ti GPU models, and it might also create a bottleneck.

So i can't go for a 1050 or ti? I want to play games like csgo,gta v,watch dogs 2,Forza horizon 4?, farcry new dawn,rainbow six siege or any Assassins creed (origins) if they are on 1600x1200 res with low or medium or even high preset?
Edit: will i get better performance with 1050 or the 1050 ti?

The lower you go in resolution the most the cpu becomes the bottleneck. Assassins creed origins can go a ryzen 5 1600 6core 12 thread cpu at 80-90% usage how can your 4 core 4thread cpu that is already weak hold up this game? Find a used card like the ones i listed you they go cheap for 50$ or less. Probably even you buy 1050ti you will get the same fps with these used cards because you will be cpu bottlenecked so why spending the extra money?

Yes you are right but i may upgrade my cpu to i5 2500k or better in 2020 maybe so i think 1050 2gb will be a good choice,For present and for the future too.As a 1050 will be less bottlnecked by my cpu as compared to the ti version....what do you guys say?

Get a used Zotac GTX 750 Ti.

Anything more will be waste.
Can i pair a gtx 1050 2G with a Q8400?( I can get it for free.)
There still would be a bottleneck between these two's ? Since Yorkfeild is better than kentsfeild.Any help would be appreciated.Thank you for your time guys.

The i5-8400 is way more powerful.

Of course you can use it, without any bottleneck.

It's got 6 cores that make it equivalent to some i7 with 4 Core and 8 threads.

i7 4790K vs i5-8400

It will let you use high end GPU's like GTX 1060, 1660, 1660 Ti and RTX 2060.

If you're on tight budget, get a used 6 GB GTX 1060 or 8 GB RX 580.

No way i can't afford all of these you listed ,im on a really tight budget since prices of pc stuff mobiles etc are going higher day by day so i can't afford much more than these i have right now so the 750 ti and 1050 doesn't have much of a price difference(between pkr 2,000) so im limited to 100$ only(converted from apx 15,000 PKR)
I really want to know if 750 ti can give me more fps/performance than a 1050 2g at 3 ghz..
Thank you for the help guys.

GTX 1050 is faster than the 750 Ti, though your CPU might slightly hold it back, depending on the game being played though. You can get either of these 2 GPUs, but the 1050 would be a much better purchase, taking into account some future-proofing as well, IMO....
Thank you for the kind answer ...that's what i was looking for...i will be getting a 1050 2g
Thanks once again all of you guys..
