Graphics card/GPU (?) advice please

My 13yo ds and his friends have built a PC from scratch for ds to game on but haven't yet got a graphics card. He wants to buy one and has told me it needs to be minimum spec of 720p and 2HB.

A quick google search has brought up 2 entry level GPUs that meet his minimum requirements and cost £100-£150. The AMD RX460 and the NVIDIA GTX 1050ti.

Dd1 has now suggested we look on CEX for 2nd hand ones but neither dh or I really know what we're looking for and don't want ds to blow his birthday money/savings (£150ish) on a duffer!

Please can anyone with knowledge of such things offer some advice?

Thank you smile

The reviews suggest it is reasonable

Thanks - I think that is the one we were looking at and comparing with the AMD one. But I'll be honest, this is all like a foreign language to me blush
