I searched alot but i´m not really sure what is the best gfx card with equal features and performance.
Maybe anybody have a personal experience.

I do. It is a great card that serves me well and I can only recommend it. I have the 4gb OC version.

So Mike you're recommending the Geforce GTX 1050 TI?  It's a really nice and cheap card, but I think the poster was looking for an AMD alternative to a Nvidia card I think.

The Geforce GTX 1050 is a great card for performance / cost. But you're not interested in that ;D

The AMD equivalent of the GTX 1050 would be the AMD Radeon RX570. So that model or anything above it would be equal > better performance.

I have an eGPU with a Radeon Pro 580 8GB and I've never had any problems with it. I had to go down the eGPU route as the Mac mini 2018 ( 2020 ) has a really shit integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 which is an abonination to GPU's. Luckily the new Mac mini M1's have a far superior GPU which is actually pretty good.
Mac mini ( 2018 / 2020 ), 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, 1TB NVMe, eGPU Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B 27 Inch
Mac mini (2020 ), M1 SoC, 8 GB LPDDR4, 512GB NVMe 
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time.

I don't get into whether in terms of performance the cards are equivalent but in terms of power consumption nvidia is twice as economical.

Yeah part of the reason why I bought one - it's so small, economical and quiet.  The power supply in my computer is not the biggest so the GTX 1050 is ideal.
