You can use this to calculate if your powersupply will be enough http://www.coolermaster.com/power-supply-calculator/

If you're going to get a ryzen for the APU and use a graphics card with it, it will disable the APU. I think you're better off getting a Ryzen 1600x and the 1050 now for the long run. But you might wana recommend upgrading that powersupply to at least a 500w.

1050's I believe come with an adapter from DVI to VGA aswell. If not, they're a couple bucks.

Please do as i said, Don't use 1030 Please. you are gonna regret it soon, better for you to buy cheap rx 560 or cheap 1050 than 1030.
Fyi, no need bios update for add a new Gpu. or you just can upgrade using Ryzen 3 2200g.
