hello,

I currently have a GeForce GTX 460 graphics card which did its job nicely, but is getting outdated. I was looking to upgrade it, but there are so many options I have no idea what to look for.

I'm looking for a middle range type of thing, OK for playing today's games, some video processing, ... but it doesn't need to do hard labor.

I was looking into the GTX 1050 or GTX 1060 range of cards, but even there you have multiple versions ranging from 150 - 400 EUR (memory is pretty clear, but the other parameters that valid the price difference are not)

My main concern is:
a) it should fit in the same slot as my GTX 460 (I think that also uses 2 slots?)
b) my power bank should be able to handle it

any recommendations from the experts?

thanks!
V.
