if you got psu connector like this you can upgrade to Another psu

thats one connector to 20/24 pin and one 4 pin 12 v connector thats the standard for motherboards.

brands like hp and Fujitsu use their own kind of psu connectors on alot of their computers

as you can see in that picture it dont got the normal psu 24 pin connector. thats the sff model but i guess its the same for the desktop.

I'll definitely bear that in mind for the future. For now tho im gonna stick with it. I exceed the minimum wattage given by nvidia and those minimums are usually overestimated anyway with people running 1050ti on 240w okay. This is gonna be such a nice cheap pc build. I managed to get the pc for 40 quid and its not some broken piece of crap it just expired its warranty or something so the company it was at sold it. Tack on 150quid for the card and im sorted.

check if the card got semi passive cooling meaning the fans only go on under load.
asus geforce gtx 1050 ti expedition got that. if you dont care about some fan noise any of the bigger brands is ok.
all 1050 ti should be same but check the specifications and make sure it dont need extra connector.

Gone with: GV-N105TOC-4GD

Its the Gigabyte OC GTX 1050ti. No extra 6 pin connector, dual fans, I think semi-passive cooling (fans slow down- don't think they turn fully off- if not under load).

Thanks for everyone's contributions on this thread.
