Really depends how often you plan to use Topaz. The 1660 ti (I assume that's what you meant, there is no 1600 ti) is roughly 2x the performance of the 1050ti so if you have to pay double, you get the same value. That could be a difference between 45seconds and 1,5minutes of export time per image. So if you plan to use Topaz wit a lot of your images it's probably worth the upgrade. But if you only plan to use it once in a while for select photos, I'd vote for saving the money.

In Lightroom you won't notice a significant difference.

Thanks for the info.  Yes, i meant 1660 Ti...

I found out last evening that Topaz uses the GPU a lot.  I made tests with my low end GTX 750 Ti and Topaz Denoise improves by 31% !!!  Since I use Topaz in almost every photo, I will definitely get the 1660 Ti.
