  1. well they are pretty close but personally i would go for the 1050ti just because it consume way less power.and newer as well.(not to mention u will have warranty for your purchase.)

  2. seems by the passmark results the R9 280X is a slightly faster card, but at the cost of 250w needed to run it versus the 75W for the 1050ti

    and not to confuse your choice.. looking at I get a more detailed information and they suggest the 1050ti is a better choice overall for gaming, where the R9 is better at b-coin mining.
