Which specific  GTX 1050 model?

 

Is it one with 2, 4 6 or 8GB of discrete VRAM?

 

A GeForce GTX 1050 mini  w/2GB model shouldn't require a PSU upgrade. 

 

A GTX 1050 card with more memory  will require at least a 450W or higher capacity ATX PSU with one 8-pin PCIe power connector for the card.

I suggest physically installing the card and powering the system on to see if it works without any BIOS changes first.

 

If it doesn't, then there are a few things you may need to do.

 

You may need to enter the BIOS and in Security ->  Slot Security -> PCI Express x16 Slot 1 Disable  (slot security)
