1050 or 1060 for Battlefield 1

Recommended Posts

Looking to replace my dead 7850 i think it played BF1 on medium fairly decently.

I dont really want to spend the money for the 1060, im thinking the 1050 would be similar to my 7850? So its kind of not future proof for very long.
Maybe i should just pay the extra $100. Not interested in 1050 ti as its only $50 difference to 1060

I also play Overwatch which isnt demanding
Here are my picks:

 

GIGABYTE 1050 2GB

Asus 1060 OC 3GB

if elderscolls 6 came out in 3 yrs and it used an updated engine of fallout 4 would i be better off with a 460-470 with 4GB?

Nevermind, ill just get the 1060 and sell it if i have to

I would not buy an RX 470 with Vega around the corner.

You're better off getting a 6GB GTX 1060 I think if you want wiggle room.

 

Better yet, wait for the new Vega AMD GPUs.

What about this Asus 1050 ti 4GB

I knew i said i wasnt interested in "ti" cause was only $50 diff to 1060, but didnt take the GB into consideration

Pretty good price too. Remember it is going to be stop gap GPU as the 1050s aren't really for gaming.

Not if you plan to play games.

a 1060 is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than a 1050ti

upwards of 60% in some titles

Alright, i just got the 1060, put it in annnnnnnnd..... shit, no picture just like my 7850 :/ so now im thinking the 7850 isnt dead... oh wait! i forgot the power cord to the gpu, annnnnnnndd.... shit, no picture just like my 7850 :/


I guess i will take both gpu to my mums and test them on her pc, see where i go from there, prolly a faulty mobo at this point.
I just bought a new PSU corsair 550x, i was running BF1 on that for a few days and it seemed to fix all my problems i had with my pc, still has. but then thats when my gfx "died"

Check your ATX aux plug (the 4 or 8-pin on the motherboard). Easy to forget and often you get no feedback if it's not in.

 

I doubt everything's fried, probably just one component though a fried motherboard is an unwanted expense.

u mean change the power cord running from psu to gfx? no, ATX let me research what this is

i repluged the power cord going to the mobo, noticed the gpu card on light now stays on even with the pc turned off. Before it was only on when the pc started. still no display. Ive tried HDMI and the old big thing, The big thing works when i plug it into cpu gfx

No, the other extra plug/s that goto the motherboard. Original ATX was 20 pin then most of the last 10-12 years use 24 in a row.

Most since the Pentium 4 and Athlon 64 came out use the seperate 4-pin for extra source of 12V and a recent addition has seen it turn into an 8-pin socket which needs both sides populated if you have a high wattage CPU.

Yeah both mobo cords were in.

I got it working. I forgot I have another pci-e slot which i should of tried 7850 in 1st before buying a new card, but anyway the 7850 doesnt work in that either. The 1060 does however. So thats weird lol. Maybe the GPU fried the slot when it died idk. I had long time PSU problem with my old one. Ill still test if 7850 works on mums PC tho some time.

 

Im happy i dont have to update the mobo/cpu/ram combo yet.

Thank you. I having random freeze lag where the game stops for 1-2 seconds then returns to normal, ill have to look at my ram timings i think?

It might be that the second slot is only x4 or x8 and the card needs an x16 connection.

 

When all other avenues are exhausted, the next thing for PCIe issues can be to remove the CPU.

Inspect the landing pins to make sure they're straight. Use isopropyl alcohol or conact cleaner onto a lint-free cloth and wipe the base contacts on the CPU then let it dry for a minute.

If reinstalling using a screw-down HSF try a little bit less pressure.

if it's an ASUS Asus P8Z68-V mobo (from his sig), you'd think the two PCIE slots would be x16

The GPU driver is upto date

P8Z68-V
This is what it says in the manual

2 x PCI-e 2.0 x16 slots (single at x16 or dual at x8 / x8 mode)
1 x PCI- e 2.0 x16 slot [black] (max. at 4x mode, complatible with PCIe x1 and x4 devices)

2 x PCI-e 2.0 x1 slots

*The PCIe x16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_1 slot, PCIe x1_2 slot, USB3)34 and eSATA. The PCIe x16)3 default setting is in x1 mode

Wait am i supposed to update driver from the Asus site or the geforce.com? Battlefield 1 is telling me geforce.com and that mine is out of date

The graphics driver is irrelevant until the OS is mostly loaded. If it's not even powering up to a visible display then the problem is elsewhere.

 

To source the latest driver it's usually best to go direct to nVidia. But some cards have specialist drivers or accompanying software especially the modern ones with auto-overclocking. In the case of those ones it can be a good idea to use the OEM software, then if it's not kept up to date by them go to nVidia for the newer driver, the accompanying bloatware will usually be a seperate uninstall anyway so you can get rid of the driver and put the newer one on without disturbing it.

You're running one card in one pcie x16 slot so it should be at x16. Unless the faulty other slot is tripping and switching on dual mode.

Can i put my sound card directly above GPU? cause im noticing a buzzing noise when playing games, wondering if it would stuff the gpu up being so close?

Chances are it's the other way around. DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort signalling is digital, though DVI will usually provide analog as well to support traditional DE15 plugs via an adaptor.

Soundcards are usually analog by default (3.5mm or RCA jacks), though plenty have digital output as well, by means of SPDIF optical, Coax out, and in some cases piggybacked over HDMI or DP via PCIe bus to the videocard.

 

Traditional advise was to keep the sound card isolated, well worth a shot. Also it's good to have free space around the video card to allow better cooling.
