    I am looking to buy a new computer and I have found two that are pretty good, but I am wondering which graphics card is better for BeamNG.
    The NVIDIA 1050TI with 4 Gb of GDDR5 or the AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8 Gb GDDR5

    Any advice is much appreciated.

    Either one will run BeamNG just fine since the game is CPU intensive. What are the CPUs that each one has?

    Hmm, personally the RX 580 will make a bit better performance than the 1050 Ti has double the VRAM so I'd go for that.

    I own a GTX 1050ti, and I would say it's a great budget card!

    Instead of a 1050Ti, why not a 1060? More comparable to a RX580 and not as expensive at all.

    Both would run BeamNG Very well.

    If I where you I would search for both and see which one you can find cheaper and buy it. That’s what I would do if I were you, but you do you.

    For more economical price, The GeForce GT 650M 2GB is great!

    He meant desktop GPUs not laptop ones.

    RX580 will rape the GTX1060 in DX12/Vulkan games any day and night, AMD has traditonally been pretty good at DX12/Vulkan.

    my gtx 1060 can handle 60fps constant, in all maps at high setting/dynamic reflection. in my opinion, it's the best value for money.

    This doesn't matter for BeamNG as it is a DX11 game.

    The RX 580 is significantly better than a GTX 1050 TI and performs nearly identically to the GTX 1060.
