Nice, the 1050's are right in the sweet spot for price/performance.
I've had a couple of Palit cards and a couple of EVGA cards over the years, pretty decent.

If you can afford to go GTX1060... go for it.

If not, sure the 1050's are as Lord said..

I didn't know they still made 2gb cards on the new gen. But it should be grand anyway.

Running well it is but i have one issue Arma 3 keeps crashing...

When i started up Arma i got in for about 5 mins gave me an Error D3D which i sorted out which is reinstall of directx9 believe it or not plus downloading NVIDA drivers from there site rather then through  Gforce EXP.Did a fresh install of Arma and still crashs with no Errror message now i get a black screen once i come to the main menu boom gone...

Anyone any ideas???

Try the following..

- Verify cache in Steam for Arma
- Do a clean install of drivers for Nvidia ( tick the clean install
Box)
- Remove any previous drivers if AMD card was used......
- If shadowplay is enabled, Disable the overlay settings / notifications ( Ctrl+Z -> Settings cog)
- Delete Arma and download again.

Post me screenshots / image grab of issue if it occurs again!

Me and Arma go way back for crashes..POS..
