I would agree with that it's been shown that AMD truly optimizes drivers for cards getting older over time giving them more usefulness be-it gaming or otherwise. Take the venerable AMD HD 7 series. HD 7850-7870-7970 etc. many still use these cards today because AMD cared enough to make them last with consistent driver optimizations that were relevant to newer games with the given the older hardware architecture. AMD also has had better hardware support for direct-x with newer versions. nVidia cards tend to be faster overall for the dollar for present gaming but the are not as well optimized over time, and .. this may be partly due to how much they sell and want to sell whereas AMD really wants you to appreciate the GPU over time, being of the old school PC gaming mindset (which is cool) actually cares about the gamer. Just my two cents.

GTX 1050 Ti is bit more expensive and considering current situation, I wouldn't pay any more for already expensive GPU market. Also AMD cards generally hold their value/usefulness longer than Nvidia's.

Still, if you want, you can swap it without problems.

 
I was wondering why the AMD when GTX has the higher performance but thank you for your insight. Gladly appreciate it.
