Unfortunately, there are two major problems with upgrading to a GTX 1050 Ti: 1) it requires UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard/Legacy BIOS: https://www.howtogeek.com/175649/what-you-need-to-know-about-using-uefi-instead-of-the-bios/ and 2) the power supply unit (PSU) in you computer is only 240W.  The 1050 Ti requires a minimum of 300W to operate properly.
