Bought this from a rich kid who doesn't like the aesthetic for about $120. Used only once and was about two weeks old when I bought it. Card runs cold all the time :) Maximum of 42C, given that I only play at 720p Ultra.
BEST FOR LOW BUDGET BUILDS.
Did handle my games in High - Ultra High Settings. Very Quiet. Very low power consumption. No additional power (6pin/8pin) required. Perfect for Proprietary CPU's.
In Australia, I don't think they sell these anymore. But this is a damn great graphics card. Sure, it's not anything GPU greater than the GTX 1050 Ti, but I upgraded from a laptop running a Nvidia 820M graphics card, so the performance difference between this GTX 1050 ti and the 820M was substantial to me.
I love this graphics card. I love the performance for such a budget graphics card, the cooling performance of the aftermarket cooler, and unlocks a wider range of games I could potentially play. From the 820M to the GTX 1050 Ti, this made really happy.
On a slightly sad note, because this graphics card doesn't require a PCI Power Connector, overclocking this is kind of limited. Not that it matters though, because the stock clock/memory speeds are fine by me.
Got this for $229 at the time of buying this, and got a free copy of Rocket League and a free $20 Steam Gift Card due to the promotional events at said time.
