i have a prebuilt pc hp elite 7300 series mt with a 300w psu, an i5 2500 3.30 ghz,8gb ddr3 ram , an integrated gpu intel hd 2000 and a hp x23led monitor.
i intend to buy a gtx 1050ti with no 6 pin connector so that i don't end up upgrading the psu.
so will my pc be compatible with the new gtx 1050 ti ??

I think you will need a better psu, you have to keep in mind that your cpu and cooling also needs electricity.A cpu is around 1.2-1.5 volts and the max usage of the 1050Ti can be 300 watts
