Hello guys. I have a Acer Veriton VX2611G. I was wondering about, If the MSI GTX 1050ti Low Profile would work on my 220w.
My specs incase:
I3 3220
500GB HDD
4GB DDR3 RAM
220w PSU

even assuming that psu is junk it could work ... 1050Ti only takes around 60-70w when gaming
of course we need to add your cpu into account: so + another 50-55w and the rest of the system
so maybe another 25w tops
that gives us 150w total , but it will be more like 135-140w while gaming .
that psu may or may not be able to deliver this kind of power consistently
(you never know with those no-name generic units ,
also ripple and noise on the rails would be out of charts most likely)

it´s a lottery really , you will not know until you try it
but i recommend to replace it as well

also 4gb of ram is very low amount of memory by todays standards ,
even 8gb is sometimes not enough these days (consider 8gb as a bare minimum for modern gaming) .
