Looking for a new budget GPU!

So recently my GPU overheated and died and im currently on a budget for a GPU
It was 4years old so im hoping to find something up to par of my previous GPU or close those are pretty much my only requirements other then dual DVI and runs max settings on 1080p
Recently ive played mostly overwatch,league,warframe, ill be playing Destiny2 when itll come out aswell so for it to be able to run that would be nice.
but overall i don't play high demanding games, i just want to have the option to.
And last but not least it would be nice if it looked good lol (im guessing the gpu's that have the logo that lights up are mostly more expensive but who knows but thats only for aesthetics and not as important then the above!)

EDIT: Budget, if possible anything under 230 CAD$ After taxes, it could be a tad bit more expensive but not prefered. thanks!
below are my current PC specs and old GPU

  1. I guess it is going to depend on what you consider a "budget" gfx card. But your system will handle the GTX 1060 6GB nicely.
    Listed from lowest to highest price: GTX 1060 6GB

    Then switch over to the Canadian Newegg site and compare prices. I suspect that $230 CAD will put you in the gTX 1050 Ti class however.

    ive looked recently into the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC but i dont know much about parts as my pc was a build i took from the internet 4years ago, did you know what the difference between EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC and EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti are? and would they be any good or are there any better options in that price range, thanks!
  6. Any of those cards above should work. (SC stands for Super Clocked) And no, there are no better options at that price point. What is the make/model of your PSU?

    Corsair CX 500M 500W
  8. That PSU is sufficient. Just making sure.
  9. I am personally running on an MSI Gaming X 1050ti with an overclock of 150mhz that puts it at 1900mhz clock (it fluctuates between 1898 and 1911)
    I am happy with this. But for that price all you are going to get is a1050ti and you won't be gaming at max settings at 1080p 60hz. Close but not max.

    alright, yeah well its mostly for the time being until i have more money to invest on it, ill stick with that one for about a year maybe
    ill probably go for EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti SC or EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti once i figure out which one is better
  11. Both are the same except for their out-of-the-box core clock speeds. The SC has a slight factory OC as I pointed out above.

    i guess ill go with the SC, ive never overclocked my gpu so having one already a bit overclocked would be nice lol
    thanks for the help!
  13. You don't have to worry about overclock too much as gpu boost 3.0 pretty much does it for you automatically. The only thing adding a manual overclock will do is to push out a bit further. For example my 1050ti will boost on its own to nearly 1800mhz but my manual addition pushes it further.
