I currentley have a HP Pavillion p6 series (p6-2010uk) and want to upgrade some parts
Processor to a Intel Core i5-2500k, (I have seen that the motherboard supports i5-2xxx)
Graphics to a GTX 1050ti
RAM to 12gb
and PSU to a Corsair CP-9020101-UK CX450M 450 W.
I have done some research and the processor would be fine in the motherboard, but:
1. I am not sure if the 1050ti will even fit.
2. I have seen people saying when they use some GTX cards it makes there screen go black, something about the wrong bios. Is there a way I could make a gtx 1050ti work? Or any other cards that would work that won't bottleneck? Thanks!

Says it supports max 8GB RAM.
I would check that a GTX 1050ti will fit physically before spending money.
The wider question is whether it is worth spending so much on an existing PC when you will get better performance from a new one.
Note: I do not work for HP and have not tested your proposed hardware combination

Newer graphics cards from Nvidia or AMD will not work because your PC has a Legacy BIOS.
Your BIOS is at version 7.xx.
HP introduced the UEFI BIOS at version 8.xx. Your MB cannot be updated to a version 8.xx BIOS.
Nvidia 600 series cards will work on your system.
Measure to verify the new card will fit and check power supply requirements. AMD cards need more power.
