Hi guys wanted to ask which GPU I should choose to upgrade my current 750 TI. Right now I'm looking at GTX 960, 1050 TI and 1650 (for future upgrades).

My 5 year old PC specs are:
Gigabyte b85m-d3h
I5-4460
16GB DDR3
Corsair VS450

I know that my motherboard is not good, but at this time I only want to upgrade my GPU.
I also need to know if the new GPU will fit my case since there are a lot of different options of the same GPU.

Edit:
Forgot to mention I'm also buying a 1080p monitor so I'm also putting that into equation.

With i5-4460 you wouldnt want anything more then a 1060 3gb imo, if even that. probably @ 100% utilization on most games. 1050 ti is probably better option then 1060 frankly.

Could you also suggest which version of dual fan 1050 Ti I should buy? Cause I really don't know what's the difference between old and newer ones that have been OC'd
 
well the problem is that it's impossible to find rx570 4GB in my country
What else is available? The 1050ti is a bad buy. It costs too much, it performs like a card older than it is. What else is available used locally? Gtx 970? You should be able to pull this off with adapters for your psu. It's not strongly recommended but it is a far better option than a 1050ti

I actually found couple used rx 570's for 80-100 euros but I'm afraid to buy a used GPU. New 970 is a bit expensive and as u said PSU is an issue. Other options is to buy a GPU with 12-20% CPU bottleneck and after couple of years buy a better CPU. What do u think about used GPU's? Is it worth the risk?

Pretty sure 1050ti has same amount of cuda cores as a 650 ti from 2012, lol. Just a higher clock/more ram.

Okay so I found this used Sapphire nitro+ rx 570 for 100 euros, but honestly I don't understand most of these values, so wanted to make sure if is it a go?

That's the exact card I have, 100 Euro seems expensive, but if there isn't very much for shipping shipping charges that might be alright.

The bios is up to date and not for mining.

Check your psu for an 8 pin connection. If it does not have one buy an adapter. With this card, you are only required to connect the 8 pin on the card even though there is a second.

These cards overclock pretty well if you are into that sort of thing. I have not bothered.

There is a free 6+2 pin connector, is it possible to connect with it ? Cause I saw the card has 6pin connection.
