GTX 1050 vs GT 1030 vs R9 380X at 1080p performance

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 / i7-8700K

The GTX 1050 's power requirements are reasonable and it is very efficient compared to the competition. With regards to max load temperature, the GTX 1050 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. With current 3072 MB RAM, the GTX 1050 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 / i7-7700K

The GT 1030 is more suitable for budget PC builds and less demanding games. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GT 1030 can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. The GT 1030 's power requirements are reasonable and it is very efficient compared to the competition. With current 2048 MB RAM, the GT 1030 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

AMD Radeon R9 380X / i7-4790K

For the most part, the R9 380X is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, there are a few options for upgrades. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 380X can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.
