EVGA GTX 1050 (Regular): Good as part of a $600 build for budget level gaming or not so much?

I recently purchased the GTX 1050 made by EVGA (and NVIDIA, of course), and for a build that is trying to stick around $600, I got this for a sale price, but some of the benchmarks are saying it may not be worth the money. This is only my first build, so bear with me. Thanks in advance.

  1. Well with that budget I would suggest this build for you... it's a little higher priced, but Christmas is on it's way, there will be MANY sales! I'm sure you can this or better with the sales if you just take 2 or 3 weeks to buy your parts (I say this because I understand your budget, and it's somewhat of a "waiting to buy" budget)

    CPU is a little weak, but the GPU is strong.. this will provide you with great performance for what you pay for the system overall

    Thanks for your response. I will consider looking into the AMD side of things when making another build or upgrading, a lot of upgrading.

    Yeah man.. when working on a budget build (like yours), AMD really shines, and they are not all that bad in these kind of builds.
