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
It also is under 75 watts and does not require a 6 pin connect.
RX 460 is a little below a RX 560 1024 version, so gtx 950 and rx 560 1024 are very close
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.

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.Source(s): Been a avid pc person since 2015
