GTX 1050 Ti Upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 500-160ev
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello guys! I have a HP Pavilion 500-160ev :  https://support.hp.com/lt-en/document/c03967519

I am about to upgrade this set up with a new graphic card and a RAM memory(i'll add 4 GB).

 

Will the GTX 1050 Ti be compatible in my current PC? The power supply(PSU) is 300W and the power consumption of GTX1050 Ti is 75W.

 

Thanks!

Yep it will prevent dual channel support. If the old one is 800, you would do best to buy a matched pair and replace both with 1600.

Hello @BYRON21

 

As long as the measurements available in the case agree with the length of your new card, you should be good to go.

With the ram, are you adding to or replacing what is there?

If adding to, its a good idea to match the existing timings to ensure the system will utilize dual channel memory.

Your 300w PSU should be OK.

Thank you for your reply!

The measurements should be not problem for the new card.

I am replacing the ram in 1 channel(2GB TO 4GB). The Ram that i am about to buy has the same Latency (11-11-11-28) and Volts(1.35).The only difference is on Frequences...the new Ram has 1600 MHz and the old one that i'm keeping 800MHz.

Should that be a problem with utilizing dual channel memory?

Considering your are dumping this much money into the system, If you come across a deal on a used i7 4770 or 4790, I would take it. The boost in speed and upgrade in thread count will keep your system more relevant and usefull for the next few years. More so than that i5.

 

Just a thought.

So, i am going for a pair of new RAMs(2x4) replacing absolutely the old ones and the GTX 1050 Ti.

Thank you for your help man! One last question: Will this set up be able to run games like FIFA,LoL,PUBG etc.?

As PubG Fifa and other games improve and upgrade the next few years, having an i7 with the higher boost and thread count will future proof you a little more that what you have now. The i5 is ok at the moment, but not for long.

 

Otherwise, save up and just buy a new system instead.

Your welcome.

Keep in mind the 4th gen is old and the longer you wait to look for a CPU, the harder it will be to find.

Good luck with the system.
