I have an AMD APU (3400g with Radeon Vega 11 integrated graphic) and I am thinking of buying a GTX 1050.

 

Question One. My power supply is 180w and the power draw from the APU is 65w and the power draw from the GPU is 75w so I should be perfectly fine to run both together without needing a new PSU right? That would make 140w total.

 

Question Two. Will the APU and the GPU work together to make my computer faster? I get around 100 FPS on csgo on my APU alone so would adding the 1050 lower the fps because it is running only off the graphics card or would the GPU and APU work together to make the computer faster? I am wanting to speed up my pc so I can stream, record, and do creative projects like premiere pro easier and smoother, will this work?

Not all GTX 1050 are 100% PCIe powered.  Some models, like the EVGA cards (and some others) actually require a 6 pin PCIe power plug. The stock 180W does not have this added plug.  Look at the spreadsheet. IMHO, you need a PSU with the safety of a PCIe 6+2 plug.   Choice in rating is yours. The GTX 1050 is 500+% above requirements for GT630    csgo Requirements

Once you install the GTX 1050 your integrated (onboard) Radeon Vega 11 graphic is turned off.

Thanks but is my power supply enough for the graphics card?
