i’m finishing my vpin and ready to mount it in a pincab. Well, everything’s ok but i have a doubt: my actual hardware is i5 cpu, 8GB RAM, 250GB SSD and a gtx750ti. i can play all tables i want to but with low graphic settings and would like to improve it. i have a 150eur budget and found this two graphic cards for almost the same price:
Asus GTX 1650 OC Edition, 4 GB GDDR5, Dual Fan
ASUS CERBERUS GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition 4GB GDDR5
do you think i should buy one of these? and which one? any suggestion?
thanks a lot!!!

Here is my 2 cents, maybe somebody will say different than me:
As far as i know for 4k VPX you need 60series or more.
So 1060+(not sure you can buy it yet) ,1660+ ,2060+.
STAT reported me yesterday that he has ball stutters in my mod with his 1050ti so yeah i think for 4k cabinet you need 60+ series.
If you will build a fullhd or wqhd cabinet 1050ti should be enough.
Recommendation would be better if you mention what resolution the cabinet will be.

Thanks for the reply, my cab have a fullhd playfield (27″) and a 21″ backglass. if i enjoy a lot this one i’ll think to make another one bigger with 4k resolution but i’ll buy new hardware for it.

Ok, so fullhd.
Then i can answer your question, 1650 is much faster then 1050ti, so choose 1650.
Here is a link:
Edit: But i will go “against you”….go for 4k and buy a 60 series card. VPX really shine in 4K.
Better wait a little more if you not have the money for a xx60 card.
Believe me…i went from FULLHD to 4K and….man the difference in VPX with the 4K tables are something you have to see.

Appreciate this discussion guys! I’m in a similar situation as rizamp. I was cautious/frugal in my build and am looking to upgrade. But rather than piece-meal together a new graphics card, which would also require a new power supply, just to make my non 4k monitor look better, think I’ll live with what I’ve got until I commit to a new 4k pf and start that project with a new pc. I’m still very happy with my current set-up and probably will be until I see a 4k cab irl – – and then it will be on!! Thanks for the advice @sheltemke !!

Thanks for the replies. Btw i think i’m going to leave this pincab as is, and invest in next pincab fullsize with 4k and so on. For this small pincab i would like to obtain the right compromise to make me and my childs enjoy It. I think 1650 does not require a new Power supply, isn’t It?

Looks like both your current 750 and the 1650 require a 450w ps so you should be fine. Have fun! Post pics!!

From what I’ve read the 1650 is a bit of a clunker, relatively… if you can afford a 1660, I would go with that. Nvidia’s numbering system is a bit weird, and there is usually a bit of a jump up from a 50 to a 60 in performance and value.

My Thinkpad has a Quadro P2000 which is pretty much in-between a 1050TI and a 1060 performance-wise. I can play most tables at native 4K, but there are a couple it will struggle with. I’d definitely go for the beefier card over a 1050TI if you want a safe performance margin for 4K, otherwise it’ll probably work alright.
FWIW, my “virtual cabinet” (basically just a standard arcade machine running MAME and PinballX.. I’ll put a real cabinet together someday when I get around to it) runs a 4th gen i5 and a GTX 770, and I have no performance issues whatsoever with tables I play. Of course, that’s just at 1080 resolution. Vast majority of my gameplay is on my laptop.
