Question Am I able to run this GPU

Yes it should be fine if you're replacing the 1050.
However you're not going to get a huge benefit going from the 1050 2G to a 1050 Ti. Yes the Ti is better, but doesn't seem like a worthwhile upgrade.

You can use practically any graphics card as they only technically need a PCIe x16 slot and power. Which your 1050 is currently using.

As you upgrade further, it comes more down to the limitations of the rest of your system, such as CPU and PSU.
but I am looking to add more ram first
If you're adding more RAM, just remember that mixed modules are not guaranteed to work, and you'll want to check the motherboard for compatibility.

Thanks for the reply, would a 1060 be a good choice? and would there be any limitations?
 
A 1060 6G would be a perfectly good pairing with an 8100. The 8100 is actually a very good CPU for the value. "Limitations" or "bottlenecking" is a dynamic term, in CPU intensive games, you will find CPU limits, in GPU intensive games, you will find GPU limits - the general consensus is that the 8100 and 1060 6G is a pretty good pairing for 1080p.

Again, you want to verify the make and model of your PSU first, as the off the shelf ones are often notoriously bad quality.
