Which GPU should i buy?

Right now, i own a gtx 760. This one: http://www.palit.com/palit/vgapro.php?id=2178&lang=en&pn=NE5X76001042-1042F&tab=sp

I want to upgrade to a card with less power consumption than my gtx 760.
I have 130euros for a new gpu. Which one should I buy?
GTX 1050?
RX 560 4GB?
I would like to buy a gtx 1050ti but those are expensive here in germany. (165-210euros)

Games I mostly play:
Overwatch
GTA 5
BF1
BF4

My system:
I5 2400
8GB ddr3 1333MHz
GTX 760 Palit 2GB

  1. The 1050 and 560 are both on the same tier of the 760, you are better off saving money to buy a real upgrade instead.
    If energy consumption is the problem then the 1050 is better, just don't get an overclocked card because power consumption will be higher.

  2. If you got the 1050 ti there's barely any increase in performance so I really wouldn't recommend that and anything like the 1050 or RX 560 will actually perform worse.

    If your trying to save power you could probably underclock/undervolt the 760.

    The RX560 has a slightly higher TDP (80w compares to 75w for the 1050) and I believe performs slightly worse than the 1050. The extra 2gb of VRAM on the 560 will be greatly appreciated by GTA and BF however. Either card are safe bets and none will be a bad choice. I would go for the 560 if you plan on keeping it for a good few years however if you want raw performance then the 1050 will be better.

    It's a poor upgrade. You'll barely notice the difference between en 760 abd rx 560. The 1050 is a bit better but still not really a worthwile upgrade. Any reason why you want a lower power consumption card? There will only be a 60w difference at best.

    Its Not just because of Power comsumption. Its also because of temps and noise. The gtx 760 gets very hot during gaming. Even when i have my Fans during gaming on 75% it would get 78C with New thermal compound. And because of the 75% Fan speed it gets really loud during gaming.

    Whats the case might just be bad airflow.

  7. Agreed, I'd fix the card. Return it to factory overclock if you overclocked it, replace thermal paste and dust the heck out of the system and clean up cables if needed to ensure the best airflow. Then I would create a custom fan curve to limit the fans to a certain RPM gets too loud. Also as long as it stays under 80C it is perfectly safe for the GPU for extended periods of time.
