That article is absolute hogwash. A 1060 3GB will ANNIHILATE a 1050 Ti.

As for a monitor, 144hz is nice, but I don't see you reaching framerates high enough with your build to warrant it.

Instead, I would recommend a 24-25 inch 1080p with an IPS panel at 60hz.

Something like this, for example: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-MX239H-19...ef=as_li_ss_tl

Fyi, IPS panels are far, far superior to TN panels (which is what most 144hz monitors are).

Way brighter, better colors, and better viewing angles etc.

Thanks. Yeah I did wonder about the frame rate...

So I guess I could return the 1050 Ti for a 1060... or wait a while and upgrade to something better if it's not giving me enough of a boost...?

For Grim dawn? If you want to play multiplayer make sure you have a strong cpu. You only need like 3 threads but you need the single core performance to be very high.

If your goal is simply to play Grim Dawn and play it well, your 1300x/1050 Ti will suite you just fine.

A 1050 Ti is practically identical to my 960 4GB and I run Grim Dawn with everything on high at an almost constant 60fps....
