Which is better? Palit 1050TI StormX, Zotac 1050TI Mini or Asus Phoenix GTX 1050 TI?

I'm really confused on what to buy. Originally I was planning to buy the Palit 1050TI but I'm afraid it might perform less compared to other two cards that I'm opting to buy. Which of the three is worth to buy? I completely have no idea on which is better.

Also, will any of those three fit in to my Asus H81m-e mobo?

P.S. I don't have plans of overclocking as of the moment.

  1. I would go with the ASUS out of those. the ASUS has a larger PCB and a larger cooler than the other two.
    performance wise flip a coin.

    Is Asus Phoenix really worth over the Zotac? I never planned on buying an Asus until I saw the price dropped to the same as the Zotac.

  3. I love zotac, good parts at a good price, my Zotac gt 440 is still running. my motherboard for 8 years has been an ASUS. for me they are both great. this card however the ASUS is physically larger, which means a larger heatsink and with the same components onboard more room between the parts which should also aid in cooling. the rear of the ASUS has a double backplate with venting, the zotac has no venting. the zotac is faster by a whopping 13mhz. the size and cooling concerns are the main reasons I suggest the ASUS.

  4. The Zotac Mini is actually a single slot card with 2 slot wide cooler. It will fit in an old Dell Optiplex when almost nothing else will. That being said i've seen Zotacs for GTX750Ti prices.

  5. If you look closely at the pictures there are some 1050s that have heatpipe coolers instead of aluminum heatsinks. Probably worth the extra $20 or so to get one. Not Palit, or Zotac though.
