New GPU advice needed

As the title suggests I think I need a new GPU not that the old one - a Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 is not functioning - more that it is noisy and no it isn't running hot I have checked (48C on idle).

So I would like to swap it out and use an Asus Expedition GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB DDR5 as I also prefer NVidia to AMD stuff plus it is a fair bit smaller than the monster (as above) my son installed when he built this machine.

Now my knowledge of GPU's extends to knowing that more memory is better and the type of memory is better at DDR5 than the DDR3. Now I also see that while both are DDR5 memory the Asus has more and the engine clock speed is just about double the Saphirre card's engine.

That is it as to what I know about GPU's so can anyone please advise on which one to go with as I really am happy with the Saphirre except for the noise and again I don't think it is down to heat or the fan going south I think it is generally noisy fan and therefore card.

I should add I don't game (my son used to) and the price for the Asus is great value right now.

Edit the machine specs are not listed at the bottom but it is based around an AMD Phenom II 1090T

When u say noisy, are u referring to coil wine? If so that's normal as cards age. I'm running dual hd7950s in crossfire and they complain more than my kids do

if you have enough budget get one of these GPU's, Geforce GTX 1050 ti, Geforce GTX 1060, Geforce GTX 1070, Geforce GTX 1080, Geforce GTX 1080 ti.
They are the best on the market, and I personally don't like AMD GPU's.

GTX 1050 Ti is a good option to upgrade in my opinion.
And, when you arereferring to DDR5 or 3, it is usually GDDR5. DDR is usually that is used as a RAM and the GDDR is what is used as a Graphics memory.

Last thing, it is not the base clock that defines performance, it is the number of graphics cores that runs parallel and that is powering the whole GPU unit.

I have an Alienware 15 R2 which has a GTX 950M GPU which is almost close to today's GTX 1050 in performance despite the GTX 1050 is having with a slightly bigger base clock frequency.
