I'd go for a 1050ti ($150) and a $50 power supply of your choice.

Ah okay, will a 50 dollar power supply be able to handle that good?


its a lower power card so yea

Thermaltake TR2 is a label that's been slapped on everything from mediocre units to outright firehazards. Avoid.

So I should wait till next paycheck and opt for a more expensive power supply?

No, you can get more reliable units from bestbuy, like the 500w Bronze EVGA. I think even Antec VP450 isn't terrible.

The seasonic M12II is just a few dollars more, get that I guess.

this is just me but with that kind of rig I'd be more inclined to buy used on craigslist especially when your only goal is to play wow low settings.

at the very least check to see if theres anything on craigslist local that interest you.

What Power Supply is in your computer right now? Cause the power requirement of the 1050 Ti is low enough that you might not need a new one.

Then you can slot a 1050 Ti into your computer as is. You'll only need a new PSU if you want to upgrade to a 1060 or better.

Friendly advice. Never cheap out on PSU. Its your pc's heart. Unless you want it to fail and take GPU or Motherboard with it.

Sometimes this EVGA 80+ Bronze 500W goes on sale for $38 instead of $48.99 but it's still in your price range. EVGA also has pretty good customer service.
