What is the make and model of your motherboard and your PSU(and it's age)? You might be able to keep your head out of the water with that GPU but if you're using the latest app's with older tech, you're not going to get the most out of your platform.
The short answer is, if your PSU has enough power and reliably built, yes the GPU should work.
Are you asking if its better the the integrated graphics on your CPU? If yes, thet I think its a better graphics option.
I run a 1050ti currently and its a decent card, but not powerful like the recent models that are hard to attain right now.
I can play many games in 1080p on medium to high settings, some I cant.
It works better than my onboard graphics for photoshop on my i5-7600.
Hope this helps
buy gt 1030 its much cheaper now and has no really big difference in case you have one, try to sell it for profit, you will be able to purchase a better one with the same money once crisis is over , GTX 1050 ti is a little outdated for modern standards
