okay so my psu is from fsp group apparently they are usually reliale and the max output is 250 watts btw the gt 730 is ddr3, so what do you think?
 
Well, you could buy that but I think the best thing to do is to upgrade your whole platform to something like:

Yes, it'll cost more but I think it'll be worth it.

i know i would be better off biulding a whole new pc but at the moment that isnt really an option, just to clarify though, the gt 1030 would work in my pc comfortably?

or, i am hearing that a msi gtx 1050ti works perfectly in a n40w psu
What's n40 ? This is getting a bit confusing. Which card do you actually want to buy ? And, your PSU is from FSP, and the max output is 250 Watts, right ? For the GTX 1050 Ti a minimum 300 Watts PSU is actually recommended. I can't really comment on the power supply unit which you are currently have, unless you show me the PSU's label.

The GT 1030 is a different story though. Is your PSU having any PCI-e cables though ? That MSI model might require a single 6-PIN PCI-e cable.

Sorry, I didn’t mean n40 I meant 240, I want either a thx 1050ti or a gt 1030 which ever is best. The psu’s model number is FSP250-60HCN. Also I have no 6 pin connecters but the Msi model dosent need that

A 1050 ti will be more powerful than a GT 1030, it is also overpriced and draws too much power for your old psu to handle. Not just that, your old apu would bottleneck it hard.
As I said above, if you have the budget then upgrade your whole platform.
With your current pc, a GT 1030 is the only card I can really recommend.

Don't worry about any typo errors. I make even bigger mistakes though, lol.....Anyways, is this your PSU ? A GT 1030 might work on this, but I don't think you should be using this with the GTX 1050 Ti ? NOT recommended.

Yes, this is my psu, so basically I get the gt 1030 for my system at the moment and it should work fine as long as I get a low profile one from gigabyte or something?
