On 75w or less, that's way better credits/watt than anything I have, except maybe the GTX 970. This 1050 Ti is running in an HTPC with decent airflow, coupled with an i7-6700T 35w processor. I'm seeing some 1050 Tis on Amicable's host stats that are getting better than 225k/day, which is as good as a GTX 960!

    I'm running the same 1050ti in a dual setup with deceit output.

    I decided I'd try this one.
    EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti FTW Gaming Graphic Cards ACX 3.0, 4GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC) 04G-P4-6258-KR .

    I ordered it on Saturday and it is out for delivery so I will have it inatalled late tody or tomorrow. We'll see what it does and if I like it I might get another one.

    RETIRED. NO JOB. NO MONEY. NO WORRIES!

    Crunched SETI Classic to the end.

    That one requires a 6 pin power connector and pulls up to 120 watts. JMHO, the 750Ti and 1050Ti are great GPUs and if that one fits the price point or is within the power or heat dissipation threshold for rig, then it's the right GPU for you. But a GTX 1060 that pulls 120 watts provides more GFLOPS/$ and more GFLOPS/watt than a GTX 1050Ti that pulls either 75 or 120 watts.

    I considered the 1060 but for me the $just didn't add up. The 1060 on Amazon is starting a 199 for the 3 gb and goes up from there if you want the better cooling and of course the 6 gb model. I can handle 2 of the 1050 Ti's but would only be able to handle 1 of the 1060's. I would love to have 2 1060s with the 6 gb but that puts the price upp to far. I will install my 2 960's into another computer and put the 1050 into this one. We'll see what happens.
