Verdict

Yes, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 isn’t bad at all. It can run most of the newest games at least on Medium settings with acceptable frame rates. As we said, it’s not a super-fast video card but its performance is enough for unpretentious gamers that don’t need the Ultra quality by any means necessary. You can play the majority of the most popular and light games like CS:GO, Team Fortress 2, World Of Tanks, Warframe, Rocket League, League of Legends, Minecraft, DOTA 2, etc, with high fps and decent details at the same time.

The other games, ergo the newest and heaviest titles like Far Cry New Dawn, ARK: Survival Evolved, Resident Evil 2, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare are not a problem for the GTX 1050 if you don’t mind Medium settings and fps ranging from 30 to 50-ish. So, the GTX 1050 is still a good buy even in 2020.
