Just got my 1050 from Fedx. Installed in 15 min. Fired up BF1....wow. Seeing 60+ on all maps at 1080p Ultra. Occasional dips to 58 but still smooth. Turning AA to FXAA high gets me 60+ and into 70s. Very nice $139.00 upgrade for 2 year old micro PC.

I just got mine today haven't put mine in yet. Can't wait. Upgrading from an AMD r9 270x 2 gig card so the 4 gigs should prove to be a big difference in my end.

Already doing some overclocking. Getting 65 to 70+ FPS on all maps during multiplay. Max settings on 1080p. Looks awesome and plays smooth with occasional dips below 65. No stability issues with my OC settings yet.

Sounds super promising. I've got the R2 with the 240W supply. Did you have to buy the 330w to accommodate the 1050Ti?

No, I replaced a GTX 760TI which used more power than the GTX 1050 TI
I see. I got the one with the GTX 745, which is why mine is rated at 240W, which sucks cause now I have to spend extra on a new PSU if i want to use the 1050 Ti :(

Anyway, how is it holding up? Absolutely no problems so far? Did you have anything else upgraded besides the graphics card?

No other changes. Its holding up well. I do get the occasional directx error that many people are reporting, but I had the same issue with my previous graphics card.
