Gigabyte GTX 1050 TI Windforce 4gb OC or Zotac GTX 1060 Mini 3gb

Hi everyone.

Which of these 2 cards will run better in my current system? Just upgrading my current budget rig. Nothing fancy yet.

CPU: i3-6100 3.7 Ghz (stock fan cooler)
RAM: 8gb Crucial Ballistix (Red)
Monitor: AOC agon g2460vq6
PSU: Corsair VS450w
Case: Thermaltake Versa H25
Mobo: Msi B150 Bazooka

Thoughts? TIA

  1. 1050ti:
    cheaper
    more VRAM = more futureproofing
    didn't get affected by the mining craze so back to the first reason

    most 1060 right now are either overpriced / out of stock, can't recommend that card for now

  2. The Zotac GTX 1060 Mini 3GB is definitely the much better performing card than the Gigabyte GTX 1050 TI Windforce 4gb OC by at least 40% (i.e. 1.4x).

    But the 1060 will bottleneck my i3-6100, and that is what I am worried about. In terms of price in my country, the Gigabyte 1050ti is priced at $165 whilst the Zotac 1060 is at $205.

    considering it's a top brand, 165$ is a fair price to be honest, just go get it.

    while 1060 do have better performance, the 3gb version had 10% less resource than the 6gb and lower VRAM (ofc) so on some games u might need to lower the settings even when the GPU is powerful enough to handle the game

    personally i rather stick with the 1050ti, it's cheaper, 4GB VRAM, and when i upgrade later to 1070/ 1080 / TI i have no regret since it's pretty big jump anyway
