  1. Depends on your budget, your PSU, and how fussy you are about CPU bottleneck. The GTX 1050 Ti is a safe choice. Fast AMD cards are not an option thanks to the miners, so you are stuck with Nvidia.

  2. if you have a GTX 750Ti, I'd highly recommend upgrading to a RX 570, or a GTX 1060 at the very least.

  3. Would have been then RX 570 but you simply can't buy one at the minute.

    How much do you have to spend?
    What country ??
    What PSU do you own ?

    You have 2 choices here IMO.

    What your looking at performance wise isn't really going to be majorly fps related though , more a chance to push graphics quality up without losing any fps.

    Run a game with your 750ti now at the lowest settings & what you'll see comparatively performance wise will be on oar with the 1050ti at high settings & the 1060 3gb at ultra.

    So on a game like H1Z1 Kotk I currently get around 45FPS, on low-med settings, will there be much difference? All im looking for is stable 60FPS.

    I don't think you'll see 60fps with an 880k full stop.
    Your lows are down to CPU not gpu.

    I would personally

    1. Buy the 1050ti
    2. Set adaptive vsync to on
    3. Change your desktop refresh rate to 50htz rather than 60 htz

    You will get very close to a 50fps frame lock that way at high settings.

    That's not even close to unplayable & with max fps locked to 50 you will not notice 5 or 6 fps frame drops
