In addition to its high efficiency and low price tag, the GTX 1050 also has the same under-the-hood improvements that the other Pascal cards feature. In terms of major standards, the 1050 includes support for CUDA, DX12, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. Finally, it supports three monitor outputs which can all be used at the same time: DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort.
This is a good entry-level gaming video card. It's also fine for if you need some video acceleration, but only need it rarely, with a limited performance boost. Don't expect too much out of it, but it's a major increase over integrated video performance!
Oh! Do note that the GTX 1050 Ti will offer a little bit better performance, and potentially at about the same price. So check that out if it's available.
