Hi

my pc config
CPU: intel i5 2500K
GPU: onboard HD Graphics 3000
Motherboard: Asrock H61M/U3S3
Ram: 8gb DDR3
Power:430w or 480w (i'm not sure)
1 1080p monitor
1 1080p tv

I have it for almost a decade and it serves all my computer needs which is media playing and a little of photoshop.
I'm going to replace my tv with a 4K one and HD3000 wont be able to support 4k. I need to mention I'm very very tight on budget but in the mean time I need it to go another 5years

I did some research and I think gt 1030 or gtx 1050 (edit:2gb) are my best choices. what do you think?
does my pc even support these two?
please help me make best decision
