My budget is about $250 Canadian dollars max. Newegg.ca preferred site and looking for an nvidia card. Not looking to overclock or run SLI (Mobo only does crossfire anyway) Not sure if this is even worth upgrading, but I have no intentions of rebuilding a new machine from scratch (well minus a case and other peripherals) I don't play a lot of AAA games but I like Path of Exile and my PC struggles with that game sometimes and won't run this new Skater XL game very well at all.

Curent specs:

1920x1080 resolution
EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD
600w PSU
Gigabyte GA-H67A-UD3H-B3 Motherboard
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz
24 GB DDR3 1333mhz (Separate question about that I'll piggyback in this thread below)

This is the card I'm looking at but not sure if it's too big of an upgrade or even compatible/worth it with this ancient stuff:

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti DirectX 12 ZT-P10510B-10L 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

And also these other cheaper options:

CORN NVIDIA GeForce GTX750Ti 2GB 128Bit GDDR5 Graphic Card Video Card GPU DirectX 12 PCI Express3.0 x16 DVI-D/VGA/HDMI

ZOTAC GeForce GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 64-bit PCIe 3.0 DirectX 12 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card ZT-P10300A-10L
https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500424&ignorebbr=1

EVGA GeForce GT 1030 SC, 02G-P4-6333-KR, 2GB GDDR5, Low Profile
https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487347&ignorebbr=1


So are any of those cards worth it with my current system or even compatible? Thanks!

And my quick RAM question:
My other question was about some new memory I bought as a replacement but ended up swapping the new Value Select ram into the first slots and putting the old memory in the other 2 unused slots for a total of 24gb instead of 16gb since they were the same brand and seemed close enough. Will this work okay?

Corsair XMS CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit
CORSAIR ValueSelect 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory

I don't know a lot if anything about AMD cards but that looks pretty promising. I'll add it to the pile. Thanks!

I used to do a good amount of DAW music recording work and editing so couldn't hurt with that when I get back into it. Is this what I need to see to make sure it's working properly in Dual channel yes?

 
Here's an old thread that asks about the gtx 1050ti vs the RX 570

http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3738482/570-gtx-1050ti.html

Basically, the RX 570 competes more with the gtx 1060, so if you're gaming, it should demolish any of those other cards. As far as I'm aware, that looks like it's running dual channel.

The RX 570 isn't the fastest card, but I used to have an RX 480 8gb which is close in performance to the RX 570. I sold my Rx 480 and made some money during mining. At that time I bought a gtx 1050ti to tide me over until I got a better card.

Trust me, the 1050ti is nowhere near the performance of the RX 480. The 570 should be close to the same performance bracket as the 480.
