AMD Radeon RX 560 / Core i7-7700K @ 4.20GHz

The RX 560 is more suitable for budget PC builds and less demanding games. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 560 against the competition in budget graphics cards. The RX 560 's power requirements are reasonable and it is very efficient compared to the competition. With regards to max load temperature, the RX 560 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 560 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

the 1050ti will be the best choice between those 2 and yes it will be more than enough at 900p.

So i already have Pentium G4560 and a GTX 750Ti, looking for an upgrade. Which one is better?
Price difference is not far here, before anyone saying RX 570 is a better option, the RX 570 is far far more expensive than the two.
Please share your thoughts! Thanks.

The 1050 Ti is faster, there's no question of that. The 560 usually costs less, that's the plus for the 560. I wouldn't bother with the 4gb version, since it's not really a fast enough card to do much at the kind of settings where you'd need 4gb vram.

I would probably go for the 1050 ti, the 1060 would be overkill with that cpu.

Hello there,
I have monitor with freesync and intially I was gonna go for RX580 4gb, but they are impossible to get so I am chosing between 1050ti and RX 560. 1050ti is better card generaly but is RX 560 better choice considering I have freesync?(they cost same in my country for some reason)

My opinion on this issue is for people who bought freesync monitors due in part to the monitor having freesync, wait until you can get the AMD card you intended to get. Part of what you're doing when you select a monitor with adaptive sync is you are committing to that line of videocards. I think it's a dumb move to do that then turn around and buy the opposite card.

If you bought the monitor for reasons that had nothing to do with freesync, that freesync just happened to be a bonus feature you didn't care about, then get whatever card is the best value for your money, in this case that would be the 1050 Ti.

I try to choose between 3 graphics cards:
GTX 1050 2GB
RX560 2GB
GTX 750Ti 4GB

I want to play in games (BF1, GTA5, Witcher 3 and etc) on high quality settings(not ultra and without MSAA) in 1280x1024 resolution. And how do you think, 750ti 4GB will better because of 4GB Vram, or what ? What must I buy ?

The price is about the same.

The GTX 750Ti will never win here. The VRAM doesn't actually mean much, it''s just the memory size of what the GPU can handle. The 750Ti wont even handle much anyway. I'd highly suggest going for the GTX 1050, as it wins with the RX 560 in terms of Clock Speed, Pixel Rate, Render Output Processors and wins in most benchmarks with the RX. Additionally, it has even higher OC capabilities than the RX 560. But if you're going for 1024p gaming, they will come out close anyway The only thing that will change is with DX 12, where you should get the RX 560

okay guys

the time has come for me to pick a new card and i think these two are in the pretty even rank, I went through the net and most sites are placing this card on even terms. I want to know your experience and suggestions. Also i am interested in noise and heat problem if there is any.

Your CPU will bottleneck you so expect lower than shown fps on games from videos online (unless they benchmark it with the same CPU as yours). But overall buying a GPU will increase your performance the most. Just make sure you have a good enough PSU and enough PCI-E connectors for your GPU.

From the one hand GTX 1050 Ti is 15 - 20% faster (~10 FPS more) but also 40 euros more where i live, but on the other hand we have RX 560 which can operate with my freesync monitor which I already have, + RX 560 is as fast and sometimes as fast as 1050 Ti on DX12 and Vulkan games (Games of the Future) and Freesync offers elimination of screen tearing and stuter which can make (as i have heard) games that don't run as well playable is situations which other cards wouldn't. Which one would you recommend?

P.S: Please don't talk from a side of a Fanboy.

Thanks in advance!

Well for the raw power aka more FPS. Then the 1050 TI. I just hate to recommend that too you because of your Freesync monitor.

Freesync and GSync are very nice features to have. I use mine all the time. I wouldn't ignore it for gaming.

So with that in mind. I would suggest you either save a little more and get the RX580 or just get the RX560 and upgrade to a newer gen GPU at a later time.

The RX560 should be enough for you to get decent FPS in those games and hold you off until you can afford a better AMD GPU.

Hi i am interested in buying a new monitor and a new graphics card for my current set up but i just cant decide which one to chose between gtx 1050ti (4gb) and rx 560 (4gb). I know that 1050 is much stronger in terms of power and will result in more fps but i have seen a video comparing those two and even though rx had 10 fps lower it was smoother cause of free sync and since i will buy a monitor with free sync i just cant decide whats worth more. Prices on the cards are 160 eurofor rx560 (4gb) and 180 euro for the 1050 ti (4gb) and the monitor is AOC G2460VQ6 for 150 euro.Total budget is around 320-350 for both so if you have any other suggestions feel free to add

Get the RX 560 + Freesync monitor. just make sure you buy the 1024 SP version instead of the 896 SP one.

CPU : Ryzen 5 1500x
PSU : HEXA FSP 500w 80+
HDD : 3 HDD ( 1To , 750Go , 300 Go )
External Hard Drive : 2 ( 512 Go , 130 Go )
SSD : 120Go
Fans : 2 Case fans + amd wraith spire for CPU
Case : Coolermaster Masterbox 5 msi edition

And i'm wondering what would suit best for this config a GTX 1050ti 4GB or A RX 560 4GB ?

thanks for your help and time in advance.

Also, the 1500X comes with 16mb of L3 Cache, the Ryzen 1400 only has 8mb of L3 cache. Not a big difference, but according to Hardware Unboxed, the extra cache yields roughly a 5fps bonus.

Hi!

I would like to ask you guys for some help. The thing is, that i want to build a pc which can run games on 1080p high settings at avg. 60 fps. I choosed these 2 cards:

RX 560 oc 4gb:
https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-RX560GAMING-OC-4GD-rev-10#kf

GTX 1050 ti oc 4gb:
https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N105TWF2OC-4GD#kf

I know that the 1050 ti is slightly better than the amd card but there are 2 important informations that you have to know:
1: in my country at the moment the rx 560 is cheaper than the 1050 about 45-50$
2: i've found a very good 75hz monitor which has freesync feature (http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-24MP59G-P-gaming-monitor)

The main question is, that the rx 560 & freesync combination is better or worse than a normal non-freesync monitor with the stronger 1050 ti card?

And one more question, in that case when in games the fps is below than than the monitors refresh rate (like PUBG or stronger games), does the freesync matters? Or it's functioning just like a normal monitor?

Having in mind you own a Free-Sync monitor and RX 560 is 45-50$ less,i would go for the RX 560.

The Free-Sync would push the low fps balanced,so everything will be good.

A 1050Ti is also a good pick considering the price.But i think the futures favor RX 560 a little more.

Hi all,

So my XFX HD 5770 died a few days ago, so I need a new graphics card. I haven't been in the market for one for a long time but figure the RX 560 or GTX 1050 would be a good choice. Essentially my only criteria is that the cards have to be at least as powerful as the old HD 5770, and if possible, run Mass Effect Andromeda.

The three I've narrowed it down to are
1. MSI GTX 1050 Aero ITX OC (http://www.msy.com.au/waonline/graphics-card/20964-msi-nvidia-gtx-1050-aero-itx-2g-ocv1-2gb-gtx-1050-aero-itx-oc-pci-e-vga-card.html)

2. Asus GTX 1050 Phoenix (http://www.msy.com.au/waonline/pc-components/17915-asus-ph-gtx1050-2g-2g-gtx-1050-phoenix-pci-e-vga-card.html)

3. Gigabyte RX 560 OC (http://www.msy.com.au/waonline/amd/20196-gigabyte-rx560oc-2gd-2gb-rx-560-oc-pci-e-vga-card.html)

Any advice as to which of these three would be the superior card? They're all within of each other, so the price is irrelevant.

Thanks in advance!

The 1050 2g GT is generally faster than the RX 560 4g but there are a few instances where the Vram favors the 560, Mass Effect Andromeda doesn't seem to be one of those titles and should favor the 1050 GT.
