All Dad’s have one super power in common; frugality

…and it’s not a bad thing, at least LagDads doesn’t think so. Nerds have a lot to contend with and Dad nerds, even more. You have the girl, the kid/s, home, car/s, job/s, games, console/s, computer/s — let’s stop there, though the list can certainly seem endless.

Hence why it is always handy to be frugal. Time to time, we can splurge (sometimes over indulging), mostly, we try and balance our lives when it comes to wants and needs. Enter the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC — the 1050 Ti ain’t bad either.

A combination of sleekness, power and quite will have you playing the games you love without the worry.  Searching for the perfect upgrade to a business/gaming PC, wasn’t all fun and games, just kidding, it was. I just love puns, they’re so punny.

To take any stress you may come across while questing for GPU’s, LagDads says; look no further.

From Cuisine Royale to Quake Champions

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC has you covered and in FHD none-the-less. It can also display in WQHD or QHD for all of your non-game media needs. Here are the specs:

  • FHD (1080p) at 60Hz, 4GB GDDR5, PCIe 3.0
  • Base: 1354MHz, Boost: 1468 MHz, 768 CUDA Cores
  • 1x Dual-Link DVI-D, 1x HDMI 2.0b, 1x DisplayPort 1.4

 

P’s and C’s, if you please

Starting with Cons:

In a Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tower there was a problem with closing the back of the case. Nothing was added to the tower, it was just forced shut — which is less than satisfactory. No RGB. Only being able to play movies and non-game media in WQHD or QHD hurts a bit, but the worst of it is this; it’s not a 1080 Ti SC.

Of course the Pros outweigh the Cons:

It looks great out of the box (bigger that expected for a single fan) and installation is easy (unless you have a M900 Tower). Fits in almost any rig that isn’t SFF (Small Form Factor/Low Profile), GPU is 97% of the time quite quiet. Fortnite, Overwatch, GTA V, Quake Champions, Counter Strike, Insurgency, Cuisine Royale, PUBG, WoW are just a few games that play swell on the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC.

Maybe most notable is the bang for buck. Play any classic game and tons of modern games with little to no effort and for less than $200 at most retailers and with promo codes and/or MIR (Mail in Rebate), you can spend $150, maybe less — if you’re patient and a bit lucky.

Proof is in the pudding

There you have it, the EVGA GeFore GTX 1050 Ti SC has the power and price to wow the most savvy, yet frugal Dads and of course the kids will enjoy the fruits of your labor as well, just don’t go buying them or you any V-Bucks. You’re welcome.
