Can anyone tell me if this GPU is a good gaming GPU? I just don’t want to get a fake GPU. Or does anyone know a good cheap GPU ?

    1) Unknown seller.

    2) Probably a used card

    3) Unmarked with logo - may be counterfeit

    4) That GTX 950 requires a 6 pin pcie connection to your power supply. Does your power supply have that available?

    5) Price is too high for performance at CAD $176. GTX 950 2GB is a little above RX 560 - 1024 version and about same as GTX 1050, below a GTX 1050 TI.

    RX 5602GB 1024 version offered at $128 after rebate, plus applicable tax for a new card from a reputable seller, even if plus shipping.

    This version doe not require a 6 pin pcie power connection.

    GTX 1050 is also available for more money

    No 6 pin connect needed.

    New Zotac brand (low end brand, but OK) GTX 1050 TI 4GB superior card is $217 plus tax

    https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/NndFf7/zotac-g...

    It also is under 75 watts and does not require a 6 pin connect.

    GTX 1050

    GTX 950

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-9...

    RX 460 is a little below a RX 560 1024 version, so gtx 950 and rx 560 1024 are very close

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-RX-460-De...

    GTX 950 2GB in Canada should be CAD $70 to $120 range, used to new price.

    "good" and "cheap" do not go together in the world of GPUs.

    sadly, there are now falsely labelled and sold GPUs on the internet -- mostly from China of course. Stick with a major retailer or an amazon/eBay seller with hundreds of good reviews to avoid these.

    Look for a secondhand GTX970 from a reputable ebay seller.

    The going price for a 4GB 970 is around $110.

    That is a pretty good GPU, almost as powerful as a GTX1060 but far cheaper.

      Robert -- your $110 is US dollars. the questioner is in Canada and is suing Canadian dollars. Further, GST attaches to all purchases in Canada, so the pricing is about the same. Seller reputation is critical to avoiding Chinese liars.

    I wouldn't reccomend a 950 for todays games unless you are planning on playing big title from around 7 years ago or not very demanding games like fortnite. I highly reccomend getting at least a 1060 ti and if possible a 1070 or 1080.

    Also that looks like a website like wish I would NEVER EVER buy a gpu off one of those kinds of sites only from amazon, new egg, or something. It's most likely not a real card just a clone.
