@TheMagician9, welcome back to the forum.

 

You have come to the right place for that information.

 

The GTX 1050 Ti should be compatible with the motherboard.  However, the internal 180W power supply unit (PSU) will have to be upgraded, also.  I recommend at least 400W to 500W.  The GTX 1050 Ti requires at least 300W to operate properly.  The amounts that I recommended will give you extra power for peak needs.  I like Corsair products for PSU's and EVGA for video cards.

 

If you want more assurance that it will be compatible, you can choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for additional help.  They are the experts on their products.
