As long as you don't get too close to busting 4GB which may require nudging some details down one notch lower to minimize PCIe traffic such as not using the HD texture pack in FC6, the RX6500 should still be much faster (1.5-2X as fast) most of the time.

This is my first pc build. I have a msi b460m mortar and i5-10400k

You recommend me getting the rx 6500xt over the 1050ti?

edit: i play light games not games with insanely good graphics, only competitive games

If you already have the 1050Ti, then you can simply use that and decide later whether it is still good enough for whatever it is you want to play at the details and resolution you want to play it.

If you are buying new, I'm skeptical that there are still factory-new 1050Tis left out there and unless you can get one cheaper than the RX6500, the RX6500 makes more sense as long as you don't mind dropping details to whatever is necessary to avoid asset swaps between GPU and system memory.

I don’t already have a gpu. I have found a new 1050ti x sold by newegg on ebay for $279 and i think i seen a rx6500 for $259 sold by newegg

I guess the other thing I would think about is maybe waiting for the new RTX 3050, but that's unlikely to meet your cost and availability needs.
Yup. I expect it to be considerably superior in every way except street price and availability despite its poor hash rate due to the number of people desperate to get something in its performance range under $500.
